Irwin Winkler directed five films before doing The Empire Strikes Back, including one called Loving.  I don't see the relevance of Bird's resume to date as a reason why he wouldn't be a good fit for Episode VII.

I think they've already made the decision who they want, just like they've already had the writer they wanted. They're just keeping it under wraps and he's just being coy about it.

As far as Indy goes, it's not on the back burner, it's not even on the stove.

 I'm curious as to Tarantino's take on Star Wars. Couldn't really do it under the Disney label and keep it PG I bet lol. Instead of Kill Bill, we'd get Kill Luke...

 Irwin Winkler?  Who the hell is that?

Not sure where I got Irwin Winkler from.  I meant Irvin Kershner.

And the Derp of the Day goes to me.

Irwin Winkler was Fonz' stunt double in the 70s.

LOL @ Jackwagon.  I was thinking the same thing as redhairs.  Who the hell is that?  Too funny.

The Fonz's stunt double.  LOL...good one ElBaz.

Yeah, almost anyone should be better then Lucas was at directing.  I'm not a big Vaughn fan, even after X-Men.  But then, like I said, anyone is better then Lucas.  Although Star Wars doesn't seem his type.  Star Wars is more like an epic movie to tackle and Vaughn is more of a down to earth beat the crap out of someone type of guy.  Cameron, Jackson, Speilberg.  Those are some of the more "epic" movie makers.  I'd almost like to see Kenneth Branaugh take a crack at it.  I really liked his Thor, it felt very epic.  And he's very good at the old english dialogue, which happens quite a lot in Star Wars.  He even has humor in his movies which would also work well into the Star Wars universe.  Actually the more I talk about him the more I think he'd be a good choice.  That would be my pick.

I think that Higgy may be on to something with the notion that Kenneth Branaugh could do Star Wars justice.

 Two choices I have seen people bring up that I just can't get behind, are Tarantino and the dude who did District 9.  I think they would both be bad choices for Star Wars in much the same way Nolan would be.  I like Nolan, but he doesn't fit SW.  I'm not big on Tarantino's style, but I don't hate, he just isn't right.  As for District 9, I seem to be in the minority of genre people I know, but I didn't care for it.  

I am not entirely sure whom I would prefer, given the choice.  I do like Abrams, but seems a stretch with Star Trek 2 filming.  I don't think he would have time to meet the schedule.  Peter Jackson I don't know if he'd be right for SW, but I wouldn't object, but no way he has time right now.  Same with JW; unless Avengers 2 gets bumped (not likely).  I don't think Vaughn would be terrible, but I would be lying if I said I'd be excited by the choice.  Bird makes me nervous with all the animation, but honestly I don't know enough about the guy to be excited or hate the idea.  I would just greet it with nervousness.

Branaugh would be an interesting choice.  I am not a big fan of Thor but I thought it was okay and had no issues with direction.  

Heck, we will probably all end up being wrong when it's announced...

It's probably going to be Brian De Palma.
