Former games journalist turned writer Gary Whitta will pen the script of 2016’s standalone Star Wars film.

Whitta began his career writing for PC Gamer in the UK, before progressing on to scripting films such as The Book of Eli and After Earth.

He’s also written three of Telltale’s The Walking Dead episodes – Season 1’s fourth slice Around Every Corner, 400 Days and Season 2 opener All That Remains.

The 2016 Star Wars movie is expected to focus on a specific, popular character from the Star Wars canon (Han Solo or Boba Fett have been rumoured) and be separate from the ongoing Star Wars sequels.
