Entertainment Weekly, the latest field general to rally the troops is actually Tony Gilroy, the main writer behind the Jason Bourne franchise. A veteran screenwriter and director, he's also a go-to resource and personal friend of Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, who has called upon his "Winston Wolfe-like" talents more than once regarding Star Wars projects in the past, so he's familiar with the sensitive nature of the property and unique material.
This trusted consultant's credits include co-authorship of The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum, and he also directed The Bourne Legacy.
In addition to his Bourne pedigree, he was recruited to assist with script doctoring on the Rogue One director's previous film, Godzilla. Gilroy's mission on Rogue One is to offer detailed notes on the film's first cut once the picture is locked and possibly provide newly written material.
However this all eventually turns out and whatever the true lengths of the reshoots are, this is a confident step in the right direction that can only be a positive development for the studio, creators and fans.
