"Edwards, who directed Godzilla and low budget film Monsters, said that in addition to his love for classic monster movies, he's also a great Star Wars fan."
Los Angeles, May 24 - Director Gareth Edwards has been signed up to direct Star Wars spin-off, which will focus on individual character from the film franchise.

The 38-year-old will helm the first of stand alone films, whereas writer Gary Whitta will pen the script, reportscontactmusic.com.

Star Wars creator George Lucas' production company Lucasfilm made the announcement on StarWars.com Thursday, although there was no confirmation as to which character the spin-off would feature.

Edwards, who directed Godzilla and low budget film Monsters, said that in addition to his love for classic monster movies, he's also a great Star Wars fan.

Ever since I saw 'Star Wars' I knew exactly what I wanted to do for the rest of my life - join the Rebel Alliance. I could not be more excited and honoured to go on this mission with Lucasfilm, said Edwards.
