At this year’s ShoWest, Zack Snyder
and George Lucas
announce to the world that Snyder has been tapped to reboot the “Star Wars
” franchise!? April fools joke?
Maybe but here’s the word from MovieWeb.com
“To be honest, Zack wasn’t always my first choice,” Lucas told a crowd of skeptical journalists and fans. “But I feel he can really 300 up the project.”
“The original trilogy is really lacking in terms of cohesiveness, writing, and overall story structure. I just didn’t have the time then to do what I did with episodes 1, 2 and 3 which represent the true intended Star Wars universe,” Lucas added.
“Quite frankly, and I know a lot of people won’t want to hear this, but I find the episodes 4-6 to be somewhat boring when compared to episodes 1-3. I just have never felt totally satisfied with this franchise and I think the fans know that.”
Snyder has said that he’d like to use the original cast’s voices somewhere in the mix. There is even talk about new 3-D technology!
