According to Variety, Rogue One director Gareth Edwards is working on a new sci-fi film at New Regency Pictures.

New Regency is set to produce and finance a new untitled sci-film movie written and directed by Gareth Edwards. Kiri Hart, who also co-produced Rogue One will also work as a producer on the project.

The movie is a near-future sci-fi story. Plot details are currently a secret, but casting is currently underway with plans to shoot this summer.

Edwards had a breakout role in the sci-fi thriller Monsters. He worked as the movie’s director, writer, cinematographer, and production designer. The movie was a hit and he would later get hired to direct 2014’s Godzilla.

Godzilla made $524 million worldwide, relaunching the franchise. He was later hired to direct the Lucasfilm Rogue One, which earned $1 billion worldwide, including $500 million domestically.

Edwards has started developing other projects.

New Regency recently co-financed the Academy Award-nominated Little Women, starring Emma Watson, Meryl Streep and Laura Dern. New Regency also produced The Lighthouse starring Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe.
