Earlier this week Disney bought out George Lucas’ company and they announced that would be releasing some new Star War films. Well any director that is 50 and under would give everything they have just for the opportunity to direct one of the upcoming chapters. And so far three of them have thrown their hats and/or glasses into race for that job. Yesterday on Conan, the audition tapes were released for Michael Moore, Woody Allen and Kevin Smith’s and I think it already looks better than Episode 1, 2 and 3 combined! Maybe all three of them could do it together, it would still be better than anything Lucas has done since the late ’80s.
Seriously you can tell Conan had a lot of fun with this and I enjoyed watching what they did! Hopefully they will do more of them!
BTW who do you think should direct the next Star Wars installment? My friend thinks Ben Affleck would be a good choice, and I would love if J.J. Abrams and Joss Whedon could do it together. It will be interesting to see who it will be?
Finally my friend who camped out for Episodes 1, 2 and 3 is undecided as of now if will be on line in 2015 for Episode 7. I am sure he will be, but Lucas has turned him against the franchise so you never know. And my love of Jar Jar Binks has turned him against me. Yes I know I am his sole fan.
