An uncredited writer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has emerged during the production of the highly-anticipated Star Wars spin-off.
As THR reports, Tony Gilroy (The Bourne Legacy, Michael Clayton) was the "driving force" behind the reshoots, and now he's been "empowered to take the lead on postproduction" for Disney's spin-off while director Gareth Edwards is still involved in the project. According t the site, Gilroy is reportedly "supervising" the edit with input from Edwards, but a source describes it as more of a collaborative scenario:
"There are not two separate editing rooms; they are all in there with their ideas," says one source close to the production. "Tony's a strong force, but they're all working together."
The Gilroy-backed reshoots tackled several issues with the film, including its ending, which is said to lead into the events of A New Hope.
What the reshoots signify still remains unclear, but hopefully it's not a major issue. Mads Mikkelsen, who's playing Galen Erso in the film, recently clarified that reshoots are normal for films with big production such as Rogue One:
