It’s his movie Monster (2010) which earned him international recognition. Breathtaking suspense film shot with only 15,000 dollars telling an apocalyptic love story against a backdrop of war of the worlds. It was following this pleasant surprise that he was entrusted with the production of Godzilla (2014), a real box office success.
The same year, he was announced as the director of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (released in 2016)this first installment in the Star Wars anthology series is an immediate prequel to Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope (1977).

It is only today, almost 7 years later, that we find Gareth Edwards with a new project entitled The Creator.
