Report: Christopher McQuarrie Worked on ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ Script

Lucasfilm reportedly brought in screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie to “save” the script for “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.”

Birth Movies Death seems to confirm an October report by Latino Review that the “Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation” filmmaker was needed to polish a script that began with Gary Whitta before being handed off to Chris Weitz.

However, Birth Movies Death contends “Rogue One” required more than the previously reported “two-week polish”: Its source insists McQuarrie “saved” the film, which follows a group of Rebels on a mission to steal the plans for the Death Star. As a script doctor, McQuarrie likely won’t be credited for his contributions.

Directed by Gareth Edwards, “Rogue One” stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Riz Ahmed, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Jiang Wen, Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen and Alan Tudyk. It opens Dec. 16.

    If this movie fails, which I feel it has a good chance of doing, especially considering all the other exciting movies on the cinema slate for this year, I wonder if it will cause Disney to rethink its 1 Star Wars movie per year plan.

    I would hope that they do… Man, I was getting quite amped for this film, as I personally found TFA a very disappointing 6/10 (barely). Went in with real high expectations (it’s STAR WARS, if I can’t have high expectations for a SW movie, what CAN I have high expectations for?), but they weren’t met for reasons that are becoming more and more obvious as people are starting to see the many flaws that are so apparent in the film. News about Vader making a return in ROGUE ONE had me excited, and Gareth Edwards is another major boon (MONSTERS was stellar; GODZILLA an attempt by a great director to make a sucky script less sucky, and on those merits a rather measured success), but this is definitely a bit of a downer. I hope they can make it work; I need this movie to be great, and proof that Disney isn’t just in it for the billions of $$$…
