A new report indicates that "Bourne" scribe Tony Gilroy has continued to work on "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story," overseeing the final edit of the film. Gilroy is an uncredited writer on "Rogue One," and directed some scenes for the second unit.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gilroy was the "driving force" behind "Rogue One's" reshoots of the last few months. They note that he's "supervising" the final edit of the film, with input from the film's actual director, Gareth Edwards.
A source reportedly told THR that Edwards and Gilroy have a strong collaborative relationship. "There are not two separate editing rooms; they are all in there with their ideas," one source told them. "Tony's a strong force, but they're all working together."
Gilroy also stepped behind the camera to help "Bourne Identity" helmer Frank Marshall as producer, when the film's original director, Doug Liman, left the project.
“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” hits theaters on December 16, 2016.
