A new stunt coordinator and screenwriter have joined “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.” The movie is heading for some major reshoots after executives at Disney felt that director Gareth Edwards failed to get the tone of the movie right.

Popular stunt coordinator Simon Crane and screenwriter Tony Gilroy have joined Edwards to help finish the movie, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Crane has been involved in the action sequences in movies like “World War Z” and Gilroy is known for his work in movies like “Armageddon.”

Sources familiar with the developments of the movie have reportedly revealed that Gilroy will be “involved in helming” the reshoots. The filming is set to take place this summer and sources have revealed that it may take up to six weeks to complete the reshoots.

The major reason why the movie is heading for reshoots is that the tone of the movie is not close to the original trilogy. “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” is set just prior to the events in 1977 movie “A New Hope,” so there has to be some synergy between the two movies. Another reason for the reshoots is that some executives at Disney felt that Edwards has made a “war movie” and they now want to lighten the mood in the movie, so that it can appeal to a broader audience.

The main plot of the movie revolves around a group of Rebels attempting to steal the plans of the Death Star super weapon that the Empire has constructed. Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) will lead her men to steal the plans, to study its weaknesses. The main villain of the movie is Director Krennic (Ben Mendelsohn), who is tasked with protecting the plans.

“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” is slated to be released on Dec. 16, 2016. The reshoots are not expected to delay the release date of the movie.
