However, reliable Entertainment Weekly reporter Anthony Breznican released a story yesterday that totally changed the tone of the news cycle. Breznican did confirm that reshoots are happening, but he says that they were set far in advance and were always part of the grand master plan for this film. He disputed the involvement of Christopher McQuarrie in the reshoots, but did note that Michael Clayton and Bourne Legacy director Tony Gilroy has been brought on to "enhance" the story. Breznican managed to pitch the reshoots as a normal part of the process, and thus, the concerns of many fans have been calmed. He's the most reliable source on Star Wars news in the business, and I have no doubt that he's correct in this instance. We'll definitely see more when Lucasfilm premieres additional Rogue One footage at Star Wars Celebration in Europe on July 15 (per the EW report).
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story stars Felicity Jones, Ben Mendelsohn, Mads Mikkelsen, Diego Luna, Riz Ahmed, Donnie Yen, Forest Whitaker, Wen Jiang, and Alan Tudyk, and will debut on December 16, 2016.
