Matthew Vaughn has been rumored for quite some time now. Although, if he is hired, I'm sure he'll insist on doing a script re-write with Jane Goldman. So, at this point, it'll come down to whether or not Disney likes his ideas.

Fincher would make something great but I feel it is a waste of his talents.

Didn't Fincher work on Return Of The Jedi and didn't Kennedy Produce The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button.

He was an intern for ILM. But... I wouldn't hold my breath. Matthew Vaughn has been rumored for several weeks now. As I said before, he likes to write his own scripts, so my guess is they're lining up potential candidates in case Vaughn's ideas don't appeal to them.

Favreau makes sense, but Fincher...I'm not sure what to think. But if he directed it, it'd certainly make for an interesting movie.

I agree. Favreau makes more sense. Besides, Fincher also has 20,000 League Under the Sea as an option.

I don't think Vaughn is reliable enough to do a sequel option for episodes 8 and 9.

In the original trilogy, each installment had a different director. I'm sure they wouldn't mind going back to that. They just need someone to set the foundation for the new trilogy. Vaughn, or even Favreau, are perfectly capable of that.

I don't know. Only Harry Potter could get away with different directors at the helm. I think its best having the same Writer and Director for all 3 so seems familure. Now teh spin off films they can do what ever. I think they should do a Hobbit just make all 3 films at once then release all 3 the next 3 summers.

You're right. Empire Strikes Back was a disaster without George Lucas at the helm.

Continuity of direction has it's good points as well as bad. Examples can be cited for either argument. When this is the case, I fall back on the notion that "If it's not broken, don't fix it." The Original Trilogy featured a variety of directors, with one guiding hand behind them all who received input from a vast array of sources. This clearly worked well. The Prequel Trilogy had one director with absolute control over every aspect of the production. The result was utter disaster. Emperor Lucas tried to fix what wasn't broken. It's time to go back to what we already know works.

You are also forgetting it was a group effort with Lucas very much in control of story and effects. Listen to the dvd commentary about in Kershners words what his job was. his job was to worry about the performances and keeping the schedule in tact.
Most people believed they should have bright Kershner back to do The Return Of The Jedi. My point is I just think its better having the same director.
The reason Lucas prequels failed was because it shows how wrong Lucas might have been to direct them in the first place.
Can we least agree that its vital to least get the write captain on board for Episode 7.

Lucas butchering of the original ending scene in Jedi and the music told me he was all about effects and could not leave what was not broken. I am not saying he isn't a good writer or effects person. I just think he is not the best actors director. Hayden is prime example of his bad casting skills. While Ewan was perfect.

I'll say it. Lucas is a bad writer, and he isn't an FX person at all. What he is, is an Idea Man and he's extremely good in that regard. The man has fantastic ideas for stories, which call for an actual writer to take and mold into something that genuinely works. He came up with the notion that sci-fi movies should feature visuals more convincing than toy rockets hung from fishing line, and hired a team of highly motivated young people to bring his idea to fruition. George saw the potential for merchandising across a wide spectrum of goods and services, and turned that foresight into a goldmine. He realized that personal computers were the future, and once again hired a cadre of young people to form a software company to develop innovative new games as well as advance the art of CGI animation. Lucas had the vision to see that an all digital method of film making would allow for greater flexibility and reduced costs.

A great many wondrous things can be attributed to George Lucas. I will never deny that. He's the greatest Idea Man of the Twentieth Century. That doesn't make him a good writer or director though, as he is neither.

With rumors of Matthew Vaughn as a possible director, I thought of this yesterday. I was watching John Carter (strange, but interesting) and saw that Mark Strong was in the movie. He has been in several movies Vaughn has been involved with. Now, we already know that the movies are not based on the Expanded Universe. But if they were, do you thing Mark Strong would've made for a great Grand Admiral Thrawn?

Also, in relation to John Carter. I wonder if the Lucasfilm purchase was already happening behind the scenes and if John Carter was an unofficial audition of sorts for Andrew Stanton to direct Star Wars. I think if given the shot, he'd do a good job.

No Disney had a big flop with JC and they need Star Wars to be a mega hit. I liked John Carter well enough but it was smashed by reviews and sci fi fans.

I know it was a flop. I was just speculating if (before it became a flop) the movie was an audition of sorts. If it was, I feel bad for Stanton as I think he would do an admirable job with Star Wars. Several of the scenes seemed to be ripped directly from Star Wars, especially the arena scene.

Box office success or failure is not a particularly fair barometer of the quality of any given film's director. Transformers: Dark of the Moon performed absurdly well at the box office, but in the history of film it will soon be all but forgotten. On the other hand, It's a Wonderful Life and The Wizard of Oz were box office bombs when they were originally released, despite their quality and resonance with audiences of all varieties throughout the decades.

Taylor Kitsch seems to have a curse for box office bombshells. John Carter did suck though.

I am not sure was per say Taylor's parts he played in that or Battleship. If anything people just was not sure what John Carter was for had no marketing and well people just couldn't get around Battleship being based off a Board Game.
