Zack Snyder developing new Star Wars movie


Recommended Posts





In what would be a surprising move, rumors at Vulture today suggest that Man of Steel director Zack Snyder is prepping for an action film set in the Star Wars universe.


The site suggests that this new, temporarily untitled film would loosely remake Akira Kurosawa's Seven Samurai, set in the past of George Lucas' sci-fi universe.


Snyder himself responded to rumors about him directing the highly-anticipated Episode VII late last year.


“I don’t think I’d be interested in directing it," Snyder told the LA Times. "I’m a huge ‘Star Wars’ fanatic. I just think doing [episodes] seven, eight and nine is just a slippery slope. It’s a whole other mythological experiment I’m excited to see, but it’s a lot of effort.”


Now it appears that Snyder's comments could have been clever misdirection, hinting at his interest in the cinematic saga without revealing that his plans are unconnected to the new trilogy.

I literally have no idea what to make of all this. Of all the sequels or reboots they could have done, I expected Star Wars to be waaay down on the list. I'm still a little shell shocked by it all. I'm reserving judgement on whether it's a good or bad thing until more facts are forthcoming.


Zack Snyder though. Love the guy and all but... nah.

Yeah, a reboot is an uneccesary and stupid thing to do, especially when Lucas replaces another piece of the original movies with some horrible thing every five seconds. (You Trekkies keep complaining about JJ Abrhams, at least you can watch the old movies and they're still the same ones they were then)
