This is turning into a massive week for 'Star Wars'! Just days after a slew of photos leaked from the set of 'Star Wars: Episode 7,' and Lucasfilm announced two new major additions to the film's cast, it was announced Wednesday that Josh Trank, the man behind 'Chronicle' and the forthcoming 'Fantastic Four' reboot is set to helm his own 'Star Wars' spinoff movie.
