Fresh off the success of Godzilla, filmmaker Gareth Edwards has lined up his next project, something set in a galaxy far, far away.

Heat Vision reports that Edwards is attached to direct one of the Star Wars spinoff films!

Due to the high level of secrecy surrounding the Star Wars development process, it is unclear which spinoff Edwards will tackle.

Explains the site, speculation has focused on characters such as bounty hunter Boba Fett and Jedi master Yoda as those who might be getting their own movies. There are also rumors of a potential Han Solo origin story or at least something on the Solo clan, and untold adventures of Luke Skywalker.

Disney CEO Bob Iger stated earlier this month that there was a plan to make at least three spinoff movies that would be released in between the main installments.

Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg are allegedly writing and producing the spinoffs.

J.J. Abrams is currently filming Star Wars: Episode VII in Abu Dhabi.

The film is set to hit theaters on Dec. 18, 2015.
