Gareth Edwards’ Star Wars spin-off to star bounty hunters?

Bounty Hunters star wars

Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been getting a lot of press recently, especially with the teaser trailer debuting this weekend, but what about the Star Wars spin-off from director Gareth Edwards (Godzilla)? Well, it looks we have some new rumors on the story.

/Film’s sources are reporting that it will follow a group of bounty hunters on a mission to steal the plans for the first Death Star. It’s described as a heist movie in space, like “Seven Samurai or Suicide Squad meets Ocean’s Eleven.” However, they mentioned that you should take this with a grain of salt.

If this is the story, it will be pivotal to helping the Rebels in their quest to stop the Empire. The possibilities are endless. Will Boba Fett be making an appearance? Will we get to see a diverse group of alien creatures?

I’m okay with the spin-off films taking place during the timeline of the original trilogy, but what I really want is to see a film set during the Old Republic. Yes, I think Knights of the Old Republic is one of the best Star Wars stories out there, and to see that on the big screen would be awesome, don’t you think?

With that said, what do you think of a Star Wars heist movie?

Gareth Edwards’ Star Wars spin-off hits theaters on December 16, 2016.
