‘Rogue One’ Director Gareth Edwards Talks Making ‘The Creator’ On His Own Terms

‘Rogue One’ Director Gareth Edwards Talks Making ‘The Creator’ On His Own Terms

There are very few filmmakers who have as much experience with massive science-fiction as Gareth Edwards, who we recently interviewed through our partnership with AMC Theatres, where tickets for the movie are on sale. After getting his start on the lower-budget, 2010 creature feature "Monsters," Edwards graduated to Hollywood storytelling with the 2014 resuscitation of "Godzilla." And that film ended up being so impressive, Lucasfilm came calling with an offer to tackle a Star Wars film. The end result, "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story," still is considered by many Star Wars fans to be one of the finest movies made in the post-prequel era. Sci-fi fans couldn’t wait to see what he did next. But the wait ended up taking longer than expected.

Gareth Edwards follows up "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" with The Creator (in theaters September 29), and the film already is generating raves worthy of a Star Wars successor. The film tackles the complicated topic of Artificial Intelligence and finds John David Washington tracking the development of a weapon that actually looks like a child (played by Madeleine Yuna Voyles). When we got the chance to sit down with Edwards and discuss the creation of "The Creator," he opened up about making the movie on his own terms.
