"Lucasfilm and Colin Trevorrow have mutually chosen to part ways on Star Wars: Episode IX", Disney's Lucasfilm said in an incredibly short announcement.

Hurricane Harvey: Day of prayer declared
The president was joined Vice President Mike Pence and 16 clergy and representatives of faith-based organizations. Rick Perry also called for official prayer but ironically-he called for prayers for rain .

Trevorrow's departure as director of the upcoming movie has been rumored since June before his film "The Book of Henry" failed to deliver at the box office, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens in regular and IMAX theaters on December 15, 2017. So, as fans of that galaxy far, far away, we chose to help out by putting together a list of directors they can turn to for a reliable piece of epic entertainment. "And he's removed himself and is alone on this island, for reasons unknown". And while we have to wait until February for his Black Panther, the gorgeous trailers alone prove he knows how to handle incredible costumes and set pieces-a huge aspect of any Star Wars film. The piece suggests that "nothing is done yet" but the prospect of Johnson directing Episode IX "is certainly in the air right now". She nearly directed this summer's Wonder Woman - she left the project in 2015, and Patty Jenkins took the lead. Jenkins turned around a floundering franchise for DC-imagine what she could achieve with an already successful one!

But "Star Wars" has the unique advantage of having incredible resources that it can rebound. "I knew that if it worked, it was the flawless time to step down - and if it didn't, no one would want me to do it anyway", Abrams explained.

Petra Kvitova no longer surprising herself after US Open win
Spanish 12th seed Pablo Carreno Busta against Argentine Diego Schwartzman will start action on the main arena. But yet, she looked sharp throughout the week and therefore earned a well-deserved spot in the quarterfinals.

Indeed, it's widely acknowledged that the directors whom Lucasfilm previously courted all had proved that they could handle the stresses of special effects and stunt work. So, she definitely has experience directing action projects.

As representation has become more prominent on-screen in the last few years, so has Star Wars increasingly put women at the forefront.

The project, reportedly an origin story centred on the bounty hunter character Boba Fett, has yet to get a new director or a release date.
