Book Review: ‘Abomination’ by Gary Whitta

Abomination by Gary Whitta title header

Abomination
Hardcover | Paperback | Kindle
By Gary Whitta
Inkshares
Release date: July 30, 2015

Book Of Eli screenwriter Gary Whitta makes the jump from big-screen storytelling to the printed page with his debut novel Abomination, a mix of historical fiction, fantasy, and horror set in the Dark Ages after the fall of the Roman Empire, a period that saw a significant drop in written recordings of events. It’s that gap in history that lends itself to much speculation, which Whitta takes full advantage of in his story, claiming that those who witnessed its inconceivable horrors, purposely concealed the truth from future generations.

Whitta’s tale begins in 888 A.D. and uses the real-life background of King Alfred of England for its set-up. Alfred had spent his reign defending his kingdom of Wessex from the marauding Norse barbarians from across the sea, and it was his success in brokering peace with the Vikings that earned the young ruler his moniker of King Alfred the Great. But now, the Danish King Guthrum is rumored to be ill, and his death would likely trigger the end of the truce. Although eager for continued peace, Alfred must ready himself once more for war, but this time around, Aethelred, the Archbishop of Canterbury, has a secret weapon for his King to use against his foes. Unfortunately, Alfred soon finds out that this weapon does not come without dire repercussions.

Star Wars - Alexandre Desplat to score Star Wars: Rogue One

Gareth Edwards will be reuniting with his Godzilla composer, Alexandre Desplat, for the newly titled Star Wars: Rogue One. It was thought that Star Wars composing alum John Williams would be the one who would conduct the score, but a new details reveal that that isn’t the case.

The plot of the franchise’s first spinoff film is still unknown, but based on the title alone, many speculate it would have to do with the Rebel Alliance’s elite X-Wing pilots, the Rogue Squadron. Hit the jump for more.

Rooney Mara, Tatiana Maslany Testing For 2016 ‘Star Wars’ Standalone Film

Tatiana Maslany

Star Wars spinoffs was the first thing that came to mind when Disney announced that they would be releasing a Star Wars film every year when they acquired LucasFilm. So with Star Wars: The Force Awakens already in post-production, its time to look forward to 2016.

Godzilla‘s Gareth Edwards will direct a standalone film based on a draft written by Gary Whitta, who amicably left to write Starlight. He was then reportedly replaced by Simon Kinberg, who was a consultant on The Force Awakens and is an executive producer on Star Wars Rebels. With the script looking like its near completion, Edwards is setting his sights on finding a cast. And it looks like he has narrowed the female lead to three stars.

Simon Kinberg

Last weekend, news broke that Gary Whitta was no longer writing the script for the first Untitled 2016 Star Wars Standalone Film. News of this certainly mirrored Michael Arndt’s departure from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. While we don’t have the details as to why the split happened, Whitta’s tweet didn’t indicate any ill feelings towards Disney/Lucasfilm. The writer is moving on with a project titled Starlight over at Fox.

But director Gareth Edwards won’t be working on the script alone for very long if the new rumors are true. Sources say Star Wars Rebels executive producer Simon Kinberg is being tapped to be Whitta’s replacement. Hit the jump for more.

Gareth Edwards and Gary Whitta

We still know very little about Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens. Fortunately we will get a little hint when the first trailer debuts at nine select theaters this Friday. Unlike the Star Wars we have seen in the past, these spinoffs provide a unique perspective on the Star Wars universe while still standing on their own. These spinoff films are scheduled to be released in between the primary numbered movies being directed by J.J. Abrams and Rian Johnson. The first to be released will be from Godzilla director Gareth Edwards and writer Gary Whitta.

Since the beginning the plot to these movies have been shrouded in secrecy. But /Film has unveiled a rumor about the plot for the first spinoff. According to them, it will tie into obtaining important plans. Hit the jump for more.
