And we are gonna get rained on with Star Wars projects so at least Disney is getting qualified folks(not d-listers) to take a crack.
    Yeah. I'm going to be there with bells on regardless of who does it.

    I believe they should show Chewbacca freeing enslaved wookies in the new film. Dustin Penner would make a great wookie. Not sure if he'd work for Disney again.

If you subscribe to the basic complaints re: Snyder that would seem the perfect combo.

    I haven't seen it in so long, but, as a kid, it was great. Robert Vaughn, John Saxon, George Peppard, Sybil Danning and, of course, Richard "John Boy" Thomas —*what's not to like?

    Maybe this belongs more in the comic thread, but...

    Star Wars #1 Smashes Through $40 Barrier On eBay - Will It Hit $50 By Next Week? - Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors

    The new Star Wars comic from Dark Horse was published this week. Despite a generous overprint by the publisher over the retailer orders, those were demolished less than a day after going on sale.

    But people still want the comic. And are prepared to pay for it.

    All the cover price-eBay listings were instantly snapped up, leaving only the Open Bid listings, with the issue about to close already attracting bids of over $40.
    What the ****?

    The issue was pretty alright, by the way.

    Zack Snyder's Reps Deny He's Developing Star Wars Take On Kurosawa's Seven Samurai - Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors

    Snyder’s reps have told The Hollywood Reporter that he’s not working on any Star Wars project, be that part of the upcoming trilogy or any kind of offshoot. They may be fibbing, they may be narrowing the meaning of “working on” or Vulture may have been wrong.
    Still up in the air, I guess.

    Little-known sci-fi fact: Toshiro Mifune turned down Vader role | Blastr

    Darth Vader is the quintessential sci-fi villain now. His voice, his clothes, that helmet ... everything about him is iconic. But apparently George Lucas had an entirely different actor (and concept) in mind that would have made Star Wars remarkably different.

    It's a well-known fact that Lucas was heavily influenced by filmmaker Akira Kurosawa when crafting his space opera. Slightly less known was that Lucas was interested in casting one of Kurosawa's favorite actors, Toshiro Mifune, in the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi.

    But what we didn't know is that Mifune wasn't only up for the role of Kenobi. In fact, according to Mifune's daughter, Mika Mifune, Lucas was so desperate to have Toshiro on board that he offered him the role of Darth Vader. In fact, the Vader helmet was supposedly designed with Toshiro in mind, save for one important detail—there would have been no mask.

    While Tohiro Mifune ultimately declined because he thought the film was for kids, we're still left with so many questions. How else would the film have changed if he'd said yes? Could Mark Hamill have been cast with his blond locks as the part of Luke Skywalker? And if he was, would we have lost the incredible twist of Vader being Skywalker's father?

    We'd love to see the alternate universe where that film got made, but we probably wouldn't want to live there. How about you?
