‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ Scribe Tony Gilroy To Make $5 Million Off Rewrites

Sometimes one man’s controversy is another man’s $5 million paycheck. At least for Tony Gilroy. As you may recall, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was embroiled in a lengthy controversy when the film entered a summer-long reshoot session that required the aid of Gilroy doing rewrites for the film. Normally, a reshoot for any film, especially one of this size, is not really a cause for concern, but because Disney and Lucasfilm were not pleased with the film’s tone, and that a rumored 40% of the film needed to be reshot in order to address some of its major issues, like tone.

Now that the reshoots are fully behind us and Rogue One is already having its press tour, we can look forward to seeing if these reshoots helped or hurt the first Star Wars spinoff. Regardless of what happens, though, Gilroy is getting a nice paycheck out of all of this. One that amounts to $5 million. More on the story below.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Jyn Erso vs Tie Fighter

It’s been no secret that Disney CEO Bob Iger isn’t expecting Rogue One: A Star Wars Story to have the same opening numbers that Star Wars: The Force Awakens had. Still, from an optimistic point of view, it could have stellar numbers because it is a part of the Star Wars franchise and the first of the many spinoffs we will get throughout the coming years.

Now box office projection numbers are coming in, and it puts Rogue One‘s opening numbers pretty high. According to reports, they could be as high as $130 million. More on the story below.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Before the year comes to an end, Disney and Lucasfilm will release Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the first spinoff in the Star Wars cinematic franchise. It seems fitting that the film will center on the untold story of how a group of rebels obtain the plans to the Death Star. We’ve seen plenty of trailers showing us just how different the tone will be from the saga films. Director Gareth Evans takes audiences to a ground war, where rebels and stormtroopers battle through all sorts of terrain whether that’s in the slums or storming the beaches.

Now, just a few weeks before the film is released, we are getting another trailer. And this isn’t just a compilation of scenes we have seen before. It’s an international trailer and there is all sorts of new footage to check out. One thing that stands out is the fact that Jyn is holding what looks like a Kyber crystal. Check it out below.

Following the release of the final poster for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Disney has unveiled the final trailer for the highly anticipated film. The story follows a band of rebels, led by Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) as they attempt to steal the plans to the Death Star. Based on the look of the poster alone, one could say that this will be a very diverse film lead by a strong female character.

As previous trailers have suggested, the first Star Wars spinoff will bring a ground-war perspective to the franchise. Now this latest trailer reinforces that notion. Check it out below.

Michael Giacchino Replaces Alexandre Desplat To Score ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’

Rogue One Star Wars Jyn Erso vs Tie Fighter

It’s not as though Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is not used to changes. This past summer, the Star Wars spinoff went through a series of reshoots, with Tony Gilroy providing much of the rewrites to the script. At the time, the film had already completed principal photography, and rumors of 40% of the film were quickly shot down. While reshoots are just a part of any blockbuster tentpole, it has had a bit of a negative impact. In the wake of these reshoots, Oscar-winning composer Alexandre Desplat will no longer be composing the score for the film. But all is not lost as he will be replaced by another Oscar-winning composer, and one who is familiar with Disney and science fiction. A new report says Michael Giacchino will now conduct the score for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Rogue One Droid Header

Droids are an essential part of the Star Wars saga, and I am not sure if that universe could actually function without them. Now with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story being one of the first of the standalone stories to explore the universe outside the saga, it’s going to be exciting to see the new characters that will be joining the expansive universe.

We already got a small look at the characters of Rogue One just a few months back, and confirmation that Darth Vader would make an appearance in the film as well. One of those new characters that stand out is the towering droid K-2SO (Alan Tudyk), and it appears he won’t be the only new droid out in the film. In fact, he will be joined by another droid that looks vaguely familiar. More on the story, as well as a video and image, below.

Even with some of the negative publicity regarding Rogue One: A Star Wars Story reshoots, there is still a heavy interest in seeing how Star Wars‘ first theatrical spinoff film will play out for audiences. So far, trailers have proven to be very entertaining and have shown us that that they don’t have to rely on having Jedi or Sith, but instead can focus on the really gritty aspects of the rarely seen ground war. Previously released images have also teased what a ground war Star Wars would look like, and a new set of images gives us a better look at some of the characters and their new gear.

Check it out in the image gallery here below.
