'Zero Dark Thirty' Cinematographer Says He's Working on 'Star Wars' Spinoff
Greig Fraser, the Australian cinematographer best known for his work on Kathryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty, is headed into space for his next project, he said in a new interview. He’ll be working with Gareth Edwards on one of the upcoming Star Wars stand-alone movies.
In an interview with HitFix, Fraser said, “I’m doing a f—ing Star Wars movie, which is like — I don’t know about you, but Star Wars is like my first film love, do you know what I mean?"
Asked for details about the movie, Fraser played it safe. "Gareth is doing a stand-alone film," he said. "Of course I do know some specifics, but it's obviously something I've signed my kidneys away for."
Fraser did, however, mention that the film had a working title. "It does have a working title but I don't know if it's up to me to tell you what that is," he told HitFix.
Fraser’s work will next be seen in a couple of anticipated upcoming movies: Bennett Miller’s Foxcatcher, released Nov. 14, and Dec. 19’s The Gambler, directed by Rupert Wyatt. Edwards’ Star Wars movie, written by Gary Whitta, will be released Dec. 16, 2016.
