i hope it involves rebuilding the death star two more times.
 
2012-10-31 02:08:42 PM  
I'd say Ridley Scott, but I really don't think that I could handle an Ewok bursting out of a Stormtrooper's chest.
 
2012-10-31 02:29:24 PM  
11) Joss Whedon

I'd say Tony Scott, but I don't know how well zombies would fit into the Star Wars saga.
 
2012-10-31 02:31:25 PM  
12) Uwe Boll

AntonChigger: 12) Uwe Boll


The only person who could do worse than George Lucas.
 
2012-10-31 02:32:25 PM  

Cythraul: 11) Joss Whedon


Dnrtfa yet, but how is whedon not on the list?

My first thoughts were whedon, jj abrams, john waters, and 7 slots of no one, there's no need for more star wars movies.
 
2012-10-31 02:33:58 PM  
List fails without David Lynch.

I'd say Great Scott, have you no decency?
 
2012-10-31 02:34:05 PM  
How about any director that doesn't focus on the Jedi? Wheadon I think would do that (although it would probably just be a Star Wars-flavored Firefly). Come on, let the whole Jedi and Sith thing just sit in the background where it belongs unless you REALLY want to depict it as a religious war.

Cythraul: 11) Joss Whedon


he's busy on the avengers.

my take on the list is 1-4 are hellz no, the rest are ok. bird would be my preference. although nolan would also be great (the complaints of his not being funny seem oddly misplaced.) cuoron seems like a dark horse "bold" pick. children of men was fantastic sci fi.

Fark the stupid people who get all biatchy about lens flare, JJ Abrams would be a pretty good director
 
2012-10-31 02:35:49 PM  
honestly, why doesn't disney just set aside like 3-5 billion dollars in a slush fund and hand peter jackson a credit card?

/you'd watch the shiat out of it. don't lie.
 
2012-10-31 02:36:26 PM  
JJ Abrams would be better at directing Star Wars than Star Trek. He actually loves the former.

Nolan. Make Star Wars for adults again. Or for the first time, whatever.
 
2012-10-31 02:40:41 PM  
I think Alan Smithee could work wonders on an adaptation.

Does not approve of your headline, subby.
 
2012-10-31 02:41:52 PM  
Okay, I change my suggestion. Here it is now, you with me?

Clint Eastwood.

Come on! It'd be great!
 
2012-10-31 02:42:20 PM  
To get any of these directors people are talking about, this original script that exists can't be garbage. I have large doubts that this original script is just more garbage from Lucas.

Agreed. Dial it back a bit with the Jedi, and I'm in for a new Star Wars movie.
 
2012-10-31 02:46:36 PM  
Immediately I thought of Alfonso just because he has directed my favorite movie, but I don't think any of these are right for it. And quite frankly, this list was just someone naming off 10 directors.
 
2012-10-31 02:47:55 PM  
Roger Corman.
 
2012-10-31 02:49:16 PM  
13) David Fincher.

"WHATS IN THE DROID!!!!"

I was going to suggest Kevin Smith for shiats & giggles, but I run into the same problem.
 
2012-10-31 02:51:43 PM  
Speilberg.
 
2012-10-31 02:53:35 PM  

DrySocket: 13) David Fincher.

"WHATS IN THE DROID!!!!"



14) M Night Shymalan, so we can have a shiattily acted cameo with him in a scene / role absolutely crucial to the movie

/also so when the title card of "from the minds of George Lucas and......M Night Shmyalan" come up, we can all laugh an dthrow popcorn at the screen

kevin smith directing a star wars movie would result in something much like jackson's remake of 'king kong'. a wee bit too fanboyish, wound up souring the movie in a lot of ways.

on the other hand, seeing jason mewes cast as han solo would pwn.

Smith would be a good pick, but I would perfer him to helm and write a DareDevil reboot

Do you really need lens flare on lightsabers?
 
2012-10-31 02:58:58 PM  
Unless we want more "Hold me, like you did by the lake on Naboo; so long ago when there was nothing but our love..."-type dialog, the focus should be finding dream script writers...

1) He'd make three movies about the Ewoks

2) Neck beard.

"No, it's only because I"m so in love with you."

"What's that movie you like so much? The one about the farking space hairdresser and the cowboy. He's got a tinfoil pal and a pedal bin. His father's a robot and he's farking farked his sister. Lego. They're all made of farking lego."

Why is it I can't find an image of Tim burning all of his Star Wars stuff in Spaced?

gah! that didn't work out quite like I expected

Robert Rodriguez.

Zombie Irvin Kirshner.

Cythraul: 11) Joss Whedon


I like Whedon, I really do. I think he's better with his own material though. I did not enjoy The Avengers as much as I thought I would have, given all the hype.
 
2012-10-31 03:12:29 PM  
Why am I reminded of the cliche where people say that a restaurant's food was inedible and yet the portion size was too small?
 
2012-10-31 03:13:36 PM  
If you don't want to click through the slides -

1) Guillermo Del Toro
2) Jon Favreau
3) Edgar Wright
4) Robert Zemeckis
5) Brad Bird
6) David Yates
7) Alfonso Cuaron
8) Christopher Nolan
9)Neill Blomkamp
 
2012-10-31 03:18:42 PM  
No Joss Whedon? Good list. Who wants to see Leia quote obscure pop culture references as she beats up a galactic vampire?

"So love has blinded you?"

At that, Anakin raised his hands in surrender.

"Stop. STOP! Please, not again.I can't take hearing this bullshiat again."

Padme scowled and stamped her foot in frustration. "Damn it, Anakin! The more you interrupt, the more we'll have to repeat this scene!"

"I know, but..." He covered his mouth with his hand and raised pain-filled eyes to meet hers. "It's just so bad, Padme: Nearly all the dialog we exchange sounds like something from the back of a dime store romance novel. How am I supposed to say this in a way that would make our relationship believable?"

"I understand, Ani." she replied, sadly. "Really, I do, but we don't have much of a choice. The writers decide how the story plays out and we just go through the motions."

"Argh!! Is it too late to sell myself back into slavery?"
