After seven years, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story director Gareth Edwards is about to return to Hollywood with The Creator. In a current interview, Edwards reveals why he took a break from Hollywood after his smash hit for Lucasfilm.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story stunned followers and critics of Star Wars alike by bringing a really contemporary take to the Lucasfilm sequence. But not like different administrators who would plunge deeper into their work after so successful, Gareth Edwards took a step again from Hollywood, together with his new movie The Creator being his first venture in seven years. Edwards revealed the rationale for this was merely needing a break from the everyday Hollywood grind set:

“I needed to get off the merry-go-round, do you know what I mean?” Edwards instructed SFX. “In Hollywood, you can get stuck on the hamster wheel, or whatever analogy you want to use. I just wanted to get off and have a break to take some time thinking about the next thing.”

“I got to make a very low-budget science fiction film with Monsters, and I realized there were some serious advantages to having no money. It was kind of a shock to have all the money you could ever want, and still be limited,” he continued. “I felt like if I could somehow get that big bag of cash and send it back in time to me when I was making Monsters, the possibilities would have been infinite.”

“And so, in a weird way, I was trying to find that kind of scenario again. I was as much interested in the process of how to make the film as I was the idea.”

Gareth Edwards is much from the one director to interrupt out of the Hollywood bubble in recent times, with Michael Jai White just lately opening up about wanting to inform contemporary tales exterior of Hollywood’s traditional components. The Creator appears to carry true to Edwards’ need to recapture the spirit of indie filmmaking, although it’s unclear if the director’s newest endeavor will match the vital success of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story throughout his time with Lucasfilm.
