Los Angeles, June 5 (IANS) Filmmaker Christopher McQuarrie has set the record straight on rumours suggesting that he supervised reshoots for “Rogue One: A Stars War Story”.

The “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” writer-director was rumoured to take over the film’s reshoots after “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” director J.J. Abrams reportedly declined the offer.

“If there are any reshoots on Rogue One, I’m not supervising them,” McQuarrie said in a statement, reports

“For any outlet to say so is not only wrong, it’s irresponsible. Gareth Edwards (‘Rogue One: A Stars War Story’ director) is a talented filmmaker who deserves the benefit of the doubt.

“Making a film — let alone a ‘Star Wars’ chapter — is hard enough without the internet trying to deliberately downgrade one’s years of hard work. Who does that even serve? Let him make his movie in peace,” he added.
