The first topic that the Council tackles is the endless – ENDLESS – reports of Rogue One getting some reshoots. Not that it isn’t a surprising development as most movies of this size have some form of re-shoots built into the production. Here, the Council look at the endless rumors of the percentage of the film being tinkered with, the directors involved, whether or not it was screened for an audience, and if Disney was happy or not.

Tony Gilroy Recruited for Rogue One

Keeping in line with the first story, here the Council look at the report of Bourne writer Tony Gilroy coming in help with the re-shoots for Rogue One. This is a more legitimate news story as Gilroy has been utilized before, namely for Gareth Edwards Godzilla. Whether or not he is actually directing is another story and the basis for so many of these rumors.
