Zack Snyder to make Star Wars movie outside the new trilogy

Madness you say? Well, THIS IS THE SOURCE.

To quote the article:

Quote:
Back in November, the Los Angeles Times reported that Man of Steel and 300 director Zack Snyder said he had no interest in directing the hotly anticipated seventh Star Wars film. But Vulture has learned that while this may be specifically true — he won’t be doing Episode VII — it was a bit of misdirection: He is in fact developing a Star Wars project for Lucasfilm that is set within the series’ galaxy, though parallel to the next trilogy. It will be an as-yet-untitled Jedi epic loosely based on Akira Kurosawa’s 1954 classic Seven Samurai, with the ronin and katana being replaced by the Force-wielding knights and their iconic lightsabers.
Let your light shine upon this news, fellow Star Wars fans!

Update: So Snyder was pretty quick to deny any involvement in future Star Wars projects, as he told The Hollywood Reporter. Vulture, however, which posted the original story, is sticking by it, saying:

Quote:
Vulture takes the accuracy of its reports very seriously. And while a piece published in The Hollywood Reporter this evening quotes Snyder's rep as saying that the director "is not involved in any way with the new Star Wars," Vulture stands by its story. This reporter heard through a source very familiar with the situation that Snyder recently flew up to Marin County to meet with Lucasfilm execs about the project. When subsequently reached by Vulture, Snyder's spokesperson would only repeat that he "is" not currently involved. One should note the possible political ramifications here of our original story break: Snyder's last Warner Bros. film, Sucker Punch, lost millions for the studio, and execs there could have become distressed at the idea of him getting involved with another studio's franchise when they have so much at stake with their upcoming Man of Steel and want him available for an immediate sequel.

I assume next weeks announcement will be something like "Paul WS Anderson to write, Uwe Boll to direct; a new non-Trilogy Star Wars film as an adaptation of Dial M for Murder"

Will this one be any less offensive to fans of the originals than the other modern films? My gut says no.

As Snyder himself would say: "Awesome".

... :\



EDIT: I'd find it extremely funny if it turns out to be Knights of the Old Republic.

Yeah, updated the OP. Still, Vulture seems pretty sure there were talks between Snyder and Lucasfilm...

But in an exclusive statement to The Hollywood Reporter, Snyder's spokesperson says: "While he is super-flattered because he is a huge fan, Zack is not involved in any way with the new Star Wars. He is currently in post on his two films, Man of Steel and 300: Battle of Artemisia.”

Well, I'm disappointed. I, for one, would have been interested in a Snyder-made Star Wars. He's generally very dedicated to the core work he adapts and while he doesn't necessarily better, he at least doesn't make it any worse.

Indeed. I know Star Wars movies are a touchy subject to most fans, myself included, and this whole deal of who's directing one is still so fresh and unheard of, but for the adaptations Snyder did, he managed to do very enjoyable movies which still retained the soul of the original work. If someone is qualified to head other's work, it's him.

It may just be me, but I wouldn't exactly hate it if someone say.... Joss Whedon... Was announced to be Director.
It probably won't happen, but hey, I never thought we'd get more SW movies either!

Just saying...

They apparently already asked him to do it. He was interested but is still working on the next Avenger project.




Considering trying out (or returning to) SWTOR? You may as well go through my link and help get me some SWTOR referral points!

Unless he was trolling, I'd have to say **** NO!

Helpful! 
I'm getting sick of all the dumb movie rumors. Disney/Lucasfilm need to get the ball rolling on Ep. VII if they're going to stick to the 2015 release date. That's a very tight schedule for a film like Star Wars.

Yeah, I pray Joss was trolling in bringing the Vong into the mix.... I read the books. It wouldn't make for a good movie. God no....
