‘Rogue One’ Co-Creator Gary Whitta leaked concept images for a project he’s been working on. The images reveal that he’s trying to resurrect 1984’s cult classic, ‘The Last Starfighter.’ The verdict is still out on wether this will be a reboot or a sequel.

“Okay, probably shouldn’t show you this so early but here’s a little something I’ve been tinkering on with my co-writer Jonathan Betuel. You might recognize the ships. Thanks to the amazing Matt Allsopp (lead concept artist on Rogue One) for creating these images for us.” -Gary Whitta

PLOT SUMMARY:

After finally achieving the high score on Starfighter, his favorite arcade game, everyday teenager Alex Rogan (Lance Guest) meets the game’s designer, Centauri (Robert Preston) — who reveals that he created Starfighter as a training ground for developing and recruiting actual pilots to help fight a war in space. Whisked away from the banality of his trailer park life to a distant alien planet, Alex struggles to use his video game-playing skills to pilot a real ship, with real lives at stake.
