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.

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.

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.

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.

"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?"

Doesn't even have to be dream script writers - you don't need David Mamet to write a good SW script (actually that would be fun). You need a couple of competent writers who understand the SW universe, have a good ear for dialog and know how to write believable characters; Disney probably has a few dozen or more that would fit the bill just between Marvel and Pixar.

Luke: Want some Tauntaun?

Han: No, man. I don't eat Tauntaun.

Luke: Are you Hothian?

Han: Nah, I ain't Hothian. I just don't dig on Tauntaun, that's all.

Luke: Why not?

Han: Tauntaun are filthy animals. I don't eat filthy animals.

Luke: Yeah, but tauntaun bacon tastes good. Tauntaun pork chops taste good.

Han: Hey, Gamorrean guards may taste like Princess Leia's pussy, but I'd never know 'cause I wouldn't eat the filthy motherfarkers. Tauntauns sleep and root in shiat. That's a filthy animal. I ain't eatin' nothing that ain't got sense enough to disregard its own feces.

Luke: How about a Jawa? Jawa eats its own feces.

Han: I don't eat Jawa either.

Luke: Yeah, but do you consider a Jawa to be a filthy animal?

Han: I wouldn't go so far as to call a Jawa filthy, but they're definitely dirty. But, a Jawa's got personality. Personality goes a long way.

Luke: Ah, so by that rationale, if a Tauntaun had a better personality, he would cease to be a filthy animal. Is that true?

Han: Well, we'd have to be talkin' about one charming motherfarking Tauntaun. I mean, he'd have to be ten times more charming than that Salacious Crumb on Tattooine, you know what I'm saying?

Luke: [laughing] That's good.

Doesn't matter who it is, as long as they follow this one rule: Don't make the movie "for kids". Make it watchable for kids, but don't make it a "for kids" movie like the prequels were.

If this rule is followed, it'll be a success, if not, it will fail spectacularly. Mark my words.


tlchwi02: nolan would also be great (the complaints of his not being funny seem oddly misplaced.)


Also, this is where I knew the writer had no clue what they were talking about. There are great moments of humour in Nolan films. Stating otherwise kinda shows how much of a dipsh*t you are.
 
2012-10-31 03:41:56 PM  
I just wanna see a Star Wars with more action. Like the space battles in A new hope and Jedi were awesome. Empire had great stuff with the Hoth battle and Asteroid field chase. But menace had... Dino warz? Or whatever that was. Clones had a bunch of Jedi getting killed trying to kill a space cockroach infestation, and Revenge had some ok moments that were kind of sidetracked by crappy dialogue and a last lightsaber battle that was ridiculously long and pointless and had no drama, even though Ewan tried his best to give it some at the end.

I did enjoy the (to me) unexpected bonus of Yoda going up against Palpatine. That was something I always wondered what would happen, but never expected to see it.

well, in the authors defense, not once has adam sandler been in a chris nolan film, and we all know that adam sandler is the bellweather of comedy in movies.

Mr. Luke: This is a very weird situation. 'Cause I don't know if you remember back in '86 there was a major farking drought. Nobody had anything. People were living on resin... -smoking the wood in their pipes for months. This Corellian had a bunch. And he's begging me to sell it. So I told him I wasn't going to be Jez Porkins anymore, but I would take a little bit and sell it to my close, close, close friends. He agreed to that, said we'd keep the same arrangement as before; 10%, free pot for me, as long as I helped him out that weekend. He had a brick of weed she was selling, didn't want to go to the buy alone. His brother usually goes with him but he's in system unexpectedly.

Mr. Yoda: For what, was he? Mmmmmm!

Mr. Luck: His death sentences. Got a bounty. They stopped him for something, found bounties on him, took him to the Death Star. Now he doesn't walk around alone with all that weed. I don't want to do this. I have a very bad feeling about it. Like millions of voices cried out but were suddenly silenced. But he keeps asking me, keeps asking me, keeps asking me, finally I said OK 'cause I'm sick of hearing it. Now, we're picking the guy up in Mos Eisley --

Nice Guy 3PO: Wait a minute. You go to Mos Eisley to pick up the buyer with the weed on you?

Mr. LUke: The guy needed it right away. Don't ask me why. Anyway, we're get to the bar and we're waiting for the guy. I'm carrying the weed in one of those little carry-on bags. I got to take a piss. So I tell the connection I'll be right back, I'm going to the boys' room. So I walk in the mens' room, and who's standing there? Four Stormtroppers and a farkin' bounty hunter.

Nice Guy 3PO: They're waiting for you?

Mr. Luke: No, they're just a bunch of cops hanging out in the men's room, talking. When I walked through the door, they all stopped what they were talking about and they looked at me.

Mr. Youda: [laughs] hard situation that is, mmmmm. Hard farking situation, that is!

Mr. Luke: Bounty hunter starts chipring. He's chirping at me. I mean, it's obvious. He's chirping at me. Every nerve-ending, all my senses, blood in my veins, everything I have is screaming, "Take off, man! Just bail, just get the fark out of there!" Panic hits me like a bucket of water. First there's the shock of it--BAM, right in the face. I'm standing there drenched in panic. All these stormtrooper looking at me, and they know, man. They can smell it. Sure as that farking bounty hunter can, they can smell it on me.

You have a very different mental image of Han Solo than I do.

In all seriousness, Jensen Ackles would be the best choice for Han Solo (if we're talking reboot instead of new story). He's already been playing a character with the same base personality for 8 years.

They're not going to hire anyone noteworthy.
They'll just hire some generic journeyman-type director, the likes of which who helmed John Carter.

Sure, people will see the new Star Wars movies, but the films themselves won't contain anything worthwhile. Just more CG crap that pleases in the moment, and then fades from memory.

Give it up, folks. The Star Wars universe is all played out.

There is a certain genius to George Lucas. To suggest otherwise is to show your age and possibly suggest you have done anything better. Ever.

Truth is, Lucas severely disappointed my expectations for a good prequel trilogy. But I remember how I felt when I first heard about them and this announcement makes me feel the same way: excited.

Lucas is one of the best "idea men" of all time. So good, in fact, that Disney just paid billions of dollars for one of them. Along the way, he became so powerful in the industry that people stopped telling him know and he started buying in to hius own greatness too much. It happens. Orson Welles, Marlon Brando, Prince, and Pope John Paul II are great examples of this. Personally, I love American Graffiti and consider it to be one the best films about that subject matter ever made. But Star Wars was a gold mine of marketing and merchandising as well as epic storytelling. That is not to say that the Star Wars universe is not incredible and dense and complex. Those who have posted here about story ideas that don't focus on the Jedi are spot on.

I hope Disney understands that with this property comes great responsibility. They figured it out with Marvel. And, IMO, they figured it out with the Muppets.

There are some solid choices on that list, and Christopher Nolan is not one of them. What he did to batman after "Begins" is horrible. Horrible. Guillermo Del Toro could bring some fun to it. I would pick Chris Columbus personally. But I think he would quit after the first two movies, like he did with "Home Alone" and "Harry potter". He's a quitter. But I don't think we even need to revisit Star Wars. George Lucas beat that dead horse to a bloody pulp years ago.

His biggest problem is that he never learned the lesson Uncle Walt learned: hire people more talented than you are and defer to them; you're not the best writer/artist/animator/gag writer/director/editor/etc the world has ever seen.

2012-10-31 05:34:33 PM  

Martstar: How about Scorcese? I know it seems as if I'm being daft, but after Hugo it's clear he can tread that line of movies for kids that adults can enjoy just as much. Plus it would be visually stunning and the dialogue wouldn't be of the prequel variety.


I'd get behind this. The scene everybody remembers from Episode 4 (aside from the trench run) is the cantina. Imagine a cantina scene with smugglers and general underbelly of the galaxy directed by Scorsese.

1) by citing the Home Alone series as some sort of positive career watermark, you negate your right to have an opinion.

2) It's not so much about revisiting the series as it is extending it. The first three movies were always intended to be the middle three of nine (I know Lucas later claimed this wasn't true, but he was lying), so there are still at least three movies to be made.

Originally, the series was supposed to be like the serials from the 30s, made which and cheap, but that all spiraled out of control and Lucas eventually became intoxicated with his own fame.
 
2012-10-31 05:43:03 PM  

sure haven't: tlchwi02: nolan would also be great (the complaints of his not being funny seem oddly misplaced.)

Also, this is where I knew the writer had no clue what they were talking about. There are great moments of humour in Nolan films. Stating otherwise kinda shows how much of a dipsh*t you are.


Really? I thought that was spot-on. As much as I like the Nolan Batman films, they are very dark and dreary and without much humor. The few funny bits tend to be very, very black comedy. Like the Joker's "magic trick."

I just can't see Nolan indulging in a running gag like "I have a bad feeling about this..."

I disagree. The first two Home Alone movies were very well made. Besides, who the fark are you? You have no authority to suggest someone has no right to an opinion. I was born in America. Where the fark are you from, asshole?

2) It's not so much about revisiting the series as it is extending it. The first three movies were always intended to be the middle three of nine (I know Lucas later claimed this wasn't true, but he was lying), so there are still at least three movies to be made.

Originally, the series was supposed to be like the serials from the 30s, made which and cheap, but that all spiraled out of control and Lucas eventually became intoxicated with his own fame.


Regardless of original intent, George Lucas has tarnished his legacy with crappy film making and casting choices. I reiterate that you are an asshole, and I hope that all the unpleasant things that life has to offer happen only to you.

Also, I would be happy with any director on that list except Zemekis or Nolan. Zemekis bores me, and Nolan is far too idiosyncratic for me to ever be happy with his vision of Star Wars. It's the same reason I wouldn't want David Lynch to direct it, even though the idea of a David Lynch (or John Waters!) Star Wars does tickle me pink.

Bryan Singer should be on that list. He did great things with the X-Men. Wouldn't be my first pick by far, but he makes more sense to me than Zemekis or Nolan.

Kevin Smith should stick to directing plays, because the man has no farking sense for cinema. No idea how to use space and movement. Great ear for dialog and character, wicked sense of humor, but he cannot do action.

2) Jon Favreau - Nah. I like him and all, but it doesnt vibe right with me.
3) Edgar Wright - Too comedy heavy.
4) Robert Zemeckis - No.
5) Brad Bird - Yes. 1000%. Hand him the keys to the franchise. The man has yet to make even a mediocre movie, and needs a big franchise to hit out of the park.
6) David Yates - I doubt he wants to pick up what will probably be a trilogy commitment.
7) Alfonso Cuaron - See Del Toro
8) Christopher Nolan - Doesnt need it. Dude has Carte Blanche now to do whatever he wants for the rest of his career. See Speilberg, Cameron, Scorsese.
9)Neill Blomkamp - Hes my number 2 from the list. After bird.

I would add Duncan Jones and Ben Affleck to the list.

Star Wars is not a franchise for someone who has established themselves. Hence Nolan being ruled out.

Im sure we will get an answer in the next couple weeks, if they are shooting for a release in 2015.

And how would that be worse than the shiat we have gotten the past few films? Most studios loved his superman script but instead we got the plodding mess that made up superman returns, you need someone that knows the audience and whats to be expected, Lucas and the crew have lost that the past few films which is why they were shiat on.

I hear RZA has a movie out...looks like he was mentored by master director Eli Roth...(j/k)

I have to agree that Brad Bird would be an excellent choice.

Snapper Carr: dirtiest_sanchez: 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...

Doesn't even have to be dream script writers - you don't need David Mamet to write a good SW script (actually that would be fun). You need a couple of competent writers who understand the SW universe, have a good ear for dialog and know how to write believable characters; Disney probably has a few dozen or more that would fit the bill just between Marvel and Pixar.


Brad Bird wrote and directed The Incredibles.
