“If a writer could resolve the story’s arcs (internal, external, philosophical) immediately after the Moment of Despair at the climax, he or she would deliver the Insanely Great Ending and put the audience in a euphoric state. The faster it could happen, the better… George Lucas hit those three marks at the climax of Star Wars within a space of 22 seconds.”It remains to be seen whether Arndt will move ahead with the entire script or if he will be included in a creative ensemble. He certainly has a lot of high-profile films coming up, including Joseph Kosinski’s Oblivion, Francis Lawrence’s The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and Pete Docter’s ‘Untitled Pixar Film That Takes You Inside the Mind’. Star Wars – StormTrooper Wallpaper Regardless of his involvement with the picture, it looks like the studio is interested in bringing the original cast back on border, including older versions of Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher). In any case, there is someone who isn’t interested in directing the picture – Zack Snyder (Sucker Punch). In his own words:
“I don’t think I’d be interested in directing it,” Snyder said during a recent interview. “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.”To be honest, it WILL be an enormous pressure to ‘fill up the shoes’ of the legend built up on the previous films; Arndt may be the first piece of the ‘how to do it’ puzzle, as the search continues for those who could rise up to the challenge set for Star Wars: Episode VII – both in front of and behind the camera.
