Spielberg, Tarantino And Zack Snyder All Say No To Star Wars

We can now cross three names off of the big list of everybody who might direct the next Star Wars film – ie. the big list of every filmmaker you can think of.

We’ll start with Steven Spielberg, because he was actually supposed to be receiving a copy of Michael Arndt‘s script soon. Speaking to Access Hollywood, Spielberg said:

No! No! It’s not my genre, it’s my best friend George’s genre.

Please don’t anybody ever say George owns the whole genre again, okay.

Tarantino seems to be put off by the involvement of Disney. Maybe we could read something about his loyalty to the Weinsteins into this. He told EW:

I could so care less…Especially if Disney’s going to do it. I’m not interested in the Simon West version of Star Wars.

That’s a bit harsh. They’re into hiring people like Joss Whedon these days, Quentin, not Simon bloody West.

Well, at least we hope so.

For Zack Snyder‘s part, he’s told the LA Times:

I don’t think I’d be interested in [directing it]… I’m a huge Star Wars fanatic. I just think doing episodes seven, eight and nine is just a slippery slope. It’s a whole other mythological experiment I’m excited to see, but it’s a lot of effort.

Does he know something we don’t know? Are they really looking for one director to commit to the whole series? Probably just an assumption on his part, or a quirk of the phrasing.

So who will be next to break their silence and turn down this gig? Bernardo Berolucci, Wim Wenders, Takashi Mike and Apichatpong Weerasethakul have so far been utterly, utterly hushed…
