Zack Snyder On Directing New ‘Star Wars’ Movie: No Thanks

LA Times

Take Zack Snyder off the shortlist of directors vying to helm one of the three new “Star Wars” movies that are now in the works.

The director of “Watchmen” and “Man of Steel” knows a thing or two about spectacle and handling massive franchises with a rabid fan following, but taking on “Star Wars” may be too daunting, even for him. (Cinema, Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, Zack Snyder)

I love Snyder's directing style and think he's got a great vision but I really don't think he's the best choice for the series. He's a little too "comic-book-y" and he's right. This is going to be a very very slippery slope to walk for whoever jumps into the chair. The puritans are going to crap all over it until they see what's on screen.

Proving something I said in a comment elsewhere. Directors should be scared of this. No matter what they do, they are going to take heat. Which is why I think its best to get someone new.
Crazay  +   968d ago
Ya I don't think anyone disputed what you said. It's a huge responsibility that, personally, I wouldn't want to take on...Hell i don't even think Spielberg would want to touch this.
sjaakiejj  +   967d ago
Exactly.. Friends of mine are already claiming the films will suck, so with opinions like that formed before production has even started on the films it becomes a very risky project to take on for any director.
Crazay  +   967d ago
That's just a really crappy stance to take so early on in the EARLY development of the series.
sjaakiejj  +   967d ago
It is, yet it is also the stance he and many other Star Wars fans take.
Soldierone  +   967d ago
It's everywhere too. Look online at how many Star wars fans are mad its happening, and we had a few articles here that were saying how bad they will be lol
denero1  +   967d ago
that's nerds for you and so called super fans -.- they love the series so much but don't want the story expanded but at the end of the day they only make up a minority
StarWarsFan  +   967d ago
I'm glad he doesn't want it. I wouldn't want it to even be given to him.
