 this would be  great. i liked all the movies he's made so far and has proven that he can handle small and big projects as well. this is a rumor though so i will not go much further about the rumor untill we gety word from Walt disney first...

 I wasn't a fan of "First Class", but I didn't dislike it due to direction.  I thought Vaughn did a great job with the story and characters he was dealing with.  I really think he's got all the right elements to do some real justice for Star Wars.

Although I would like to see what he does with 47 Ronin first, I think a sci-fi fan like Carl Erik Rinsch might do the franchise justice with a fresh take on directing.

 I'm going to go out on a limb here...it seems like a lot of people on here would like a brilliant director to take over for Star Wars...I'm not so sure that I do.  Does anybody know who was George Lucas' first choice to direct Return of the Jedi?...David Lynch.  I hear he actually flipped coin to choose between Return of the Jedi and Dune.  I think Lynch is a brilliant director, but I'm glad he stayed away from Star Wars.  Give me a "jack of all genres" as Lazarus accused Vaughn of being to direct Star Wars any day.

I think he's a great choice.  He hasn't made a movie I don't like.

So does this mean no Live action TV show?

SarcasticCaveman 11/7/2012 6:11:01 PM

 I would bet that Disney would move ahead on the live action Star Wars TV show.  I don't think they're as concerned with making up to George Lucas' idea of perfection, and I'll bet they could work magic with a much smaller budget than what Lucas had in mind.  If they've already got all those scripts, I really don't see Disney sitting on it for very long.  I mean really, how long after "The Avengers" did they announce the S.H.I.E.L.D. TV show?  Yeah, I think Disney will move ahead on it.

I'd be pretty happy if they cut back on all the CGI used in eps 1-3.

Top 5 directors for directing SW as I would interview these guys in this order, the order being the last choice to first choice...

#5 Del Toro would be my fifth choice only because he works on his own stories and projects and would have to be persuaded to do it, someone that loves working on their stuff as much as Mr Toro does would have to be persuaded to come and make these and then some love is lost with the taking care of the material and story since it's not his ideas or themes but if persuaded to do it he would be perfect with the skill sets he has in special effects, could really bring a good balance to the movies with his knowledge and artistic writing skills, making for not only a visually exciting movie but more importantly a well told story...

#4 I would go with Kevin Smith, he is by far one of the biggest geeks out there in movie making land next to Del Toro and he would bring artistic dialog to a movie or movies that should in all likely hood be geared towards us adults now, it is a Dark Story of Evil running rampant and the few good trying to stop it so let's get a director that will cater to us older people, a director that can give us the dark and ominous type of movie we all wanted when Phantom Menace came out but we all decided to love the Matrix instead cause that was what we were suppose to have with SW but never got it...Kevin Smith does not have the apptitude that allot of directors have when dealing with special affects driven movies but that's nothing that can't be cured with a good crew working for you that actually do know what they are doing, just check out the matrix, the Watchowski's had no idea how to develop the special effects in the Matrix, they just knew what they wanted and the special effects supervisor made it possible for them...Kevin Smith, laugh if you want but he can do this...

#3 Joseph Kosinski...The guy that made the last Tron Movie has the chops to make a visually stunning movie and at the same time prove to be a much better writer than Lucas, that part does not seem to be hard to do if you can write for humans that are not in the age range of 5 to 10 years of age, ya the Tron Director would be good...

#2 my second choice would be the director that made that animated movie called 9, Shane Acker...This was one of the first animated movies geared towards adults and for good reason he likes his stories dark, this director/writer knows how to write for adults cause he writes for himself, and what he likes and invisions for the projects he works on benefits us all that like to dwell in a good story that is dark in nature, something that we adults can relate to, something that reflects our times, we don't need  a dark story candy coated by a director in order to sale toys and this director would not sacrifice his theory and philosophy in story telling in order to do so...If you have not watched the movie 9 you should, I think you might agree that this man can do the job right...it also helped that he had Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov as producers on 9 although I am one of those people that feel TIm Burton needs to stay in the dog house until he get's out of his repetative funk and stops using all the same actors and the same themes in every single piece of work he has done, it's old already Mr Burton try something fresh plz although Timur would make a great producer for these movies, of course  his involvement or any other producers involvment is not of importance right now but finding a direcor is...

#1 My number one choice would be the guy that made District 9...He has a visual style that would do well with the SW universe and once again and I know I am repeating myself but he is a good writer and when it's all said and done a good writer/director who knows how to get the best performance out of his actors is what SW needs right now, some good wrting to help us all forget about the terrible dialog that Lucas made us sit through with the last three movies he made would be an awesome thing to witness then I don't have to feel as though I lose IQ everytime I watch a Lucas made movie...

These guys would be my picks and I know there are allot of guys out there that some of you would like to see do this but the good directors seem to be far to involved in working on their own stuff, I don't think their egos will allow them to do anything other than work on stuff they have developed and created so we are looking for mid level ter guys or guys that are up and coming, don't expect Ridley Scott or James Cameron do want to do this, won't happen, You can't blame these high level directors, who wants to work on something that was not created by them in an industry that asks people of the business to CREATE and Develop new and exciting ideas? I would not want to do that but would do it if it meant bringing my work to a larger stage with the possibilty of getting more work for a up and coming director trying to gain leverage with the studios and of course to get that 7 movie deal contract that will help them bring in that pay check to pay for all those late night coke and whore parties, at least this is what I heard happens when Terrintino goes to Las Vegas to write, he seems to have work and fun all rolled into one package, damn I wish I had half his writing talent, his life sounds fun LOL

Rambling session done for now, will ramble again soon so that way you all can ask yourselfs, what the hell is that guy talking about ;)

It's an interesting rumor but it's not going to happen. Vaughn has a track record of balking at the starting gate on projects. So I think that they'll go with someone that Disney has worked with before, like Kosinski, Bird, Verbinski, or Faverau.
