Sam Raimi is too campy and I think Star Wars needs a dose of serious directing after what Lucas did to the prequels.

LOL. Star Wars has always been campy. It's based on 1930's and `40s movie serials. If anything, the Prequels were too serious. Remember the goofy Yoda from Empire who messed with Luke when he arrived at that friggin swamp? Where was he in the Prequels?

Tron was shot and directed quite well. I'm all for someone like him being behind the camera.

I think the same can be applied to Zack Snyder his camera work is great as long as he has a good script to back it up

I am hearing they will be announcing a director any day really. Also casting should be interesting after we find out the plan for the original actors.

I wonder if many directors are just to affraid to take on the Star Wars movies. If ask me any person would be a step up because while I liked all the Prequels well enough I also feel they could have been better and as great a visonary as Lucas is. He however is not a very good director. Not every writer can be a great Director.

I mean no disrespect for George is a visonary and he created a world of rich unforgettable characters but many were calling for his head after the prequel films. My opinion is that a new director might have given more to the prequels and maybe these new films will be what we have been waiting for.

Quote:
Here’s some tantalizing dish to chew on before the Thanksgiving turkey and trimmings. After hiring Michael Arndt to script the first installment of the relaunch of George Lucas’ Star Wars franchise, I’ve heard Disney has approached Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg and I believe it is to get the ball rolling on the subsequent installments mapped out by Lucas. Both of the scribes in question have franchise experience.

Kasdan scripted two of the original Star Wars films, the 1980 Empire Strikes Back and the 1983 follow-up Return of the Jedi. He also scripted Raiders Of The Lost Ark for Lucas and Steven Spielberg. Kinberg’s franchise work: X-Men: First Class, Sherlock Holmes and the upcoming X-Men: Days Of Future Past which Bryan Singer will direct.

UPDATE: According to CS, via Hollywood Reporter, it is a done deal and they will be Producers as well.

More writers seems like a Disney style. They always liked to have a writing team. Pirates was an example of that. Wouldn't be surprised if they added Stuart Beattie as well because he was the guy who wrote most of the good parts of Pirates 1

I was just kidding really. But I am surprised they need a team but then again allot of big movies have writing teams.

Here's some great news!

Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg have closed deals to write installments of the new Star Wars trilogy, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter. The pair will write either Episode VIII or Episode IX -- their exact division of responsibilities is yet to be determined -- and also will come aboard to produce the films. (Full article below)

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/hea...n-simon-393459

Good things will come of this.

I have extremely high hopes for Star Wars now that Lucas is out of it.
