Even more Star Wars movies??? [UPDATE] - Nope!
UPDATE: Snyder's agent denied this report. So much for that!
Zack Snyder, the man behind fun slow-mo action films like 300, Watchmen, and the upcoming (an surely slow-mo filled) Man of Steel is set to direct an additional Star Wars movie.
The film will be set in the Star Wars galaxy and will be a loose adaptation of Akira Kurosawa's samurai epic Seven Samurai. Swap out the samurai and ronin with Jedi and lightsabers and you've got me throwing wads of cash at my monitor.
This won't be a numbered entry and will begin production sometime after Disney begins work for 2015's Episode VII. Disney CEO Bob Iger did say he wants to release Star Wars movies every couple years, so this would naturally fit into his plan.
Are any of you g1s as pumped as I am? Admittedly, Snyder isn't the world's greatest director *cough cough Sucker Punch* but he does make cool action sequences. Let us know how pumped you are in the comments!
