The script of “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” needs saving. Reports suggest that Christopher McQuarrie is brought into the picture to do so. He is the official script doctor of Hollywood, and this time, he is going to save a standalone Star Wars movie.
“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” is about a group of rebels trying to steal plans for the Death Star. Previously, the script was handled by Gary Whitta. Once he departed for “Starlight,” a movie based on Mark Millar’s comic, Chris Weitz took over. It seemed that he has less original thinking as he pointed out, “There’s a very strong structure from Gary’s work and that’s a huge advantage to me.”
According to reports, the script of the movie is still quite loose, though Chris is trying to do a good job. McQuarrie will work to tighten the script even further. However, his name will not feature in the movie’s credits. The involvement of the script doctor will be for two weeks.
Viewers can expect a strong script from McQuarrie, who is known for “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation.” It is not the only successful story to his credit, though. He had his contributions in “Edge of Tomorrow,” and he is looking forward to “M:I 6.”
“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” is not the first time Christopher McQuarrie will be working to strengthen a script. We hope his effort pays off as the movie releases in theaters on December 16, 2016.
