No Bird for Episode VII

Official Via his Twitter

With all the speculation going around about who will/ should direct Star Wars Episode VII one more name is now out of the hat. JJ Abrams, Steven Spielberg, and Ben Affleck have said no. Quentin Tarantino was probably the most vocal against it. Now fanboy favorite Brad Bird (Iron Giant, The Incredibles, Ratatouille and Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol) is out too.
 
Here is his response via Twitter: ““(at a twitter follower) tell me your next one is the new Star Wars!” Nope. A science fiction film. Not Star Wars.” he then replied, “That said, Michael Arndt is a fantastic writer and Kathy Kennedy is a brilliant producer. I will be first in line to see the new STAR WARS”.
 
Currently Brad Bird is working on 1952, a science fiction film, with Damon Lindelof and it's said to be a "Close Encounters-esque tentpole."
Who does this leave now? Jon Favreau, Joe Johnston, and Matthew Vaughn are still out there. 

Thanks to
Chopsaki for the submission.
