Walking Dead writer to pen next Star Wars, hopefully Wookiee outbreak to ensue

Gary Whitta, a writer who penned three previous episodes of The Walking Dead for Telltale, has been hired to write the screenplay for the next Star Wars film. Whitta started out as a games journalist, so he has made a major transition. The rumor is the 2016 film will focus on a non-central character from the Star Wars lexicon, so we’re totally expecting a scene where Han Solo faces a difficult moral decision about sawing Chewbacca’s pinned leg off. 

This speaks fairly well for the quality of writing over at Telltale these days, even though the movie is officially a spinoff of the biggest sci-fi >
