Struzan to Return to Star Wars?

Will the artist do another Star Wars poster?

It was only a matter time before Disney started to assemble all the pieces to make Star Wars happen again. For many fans, a daily reminder of the myth and magic of Star Wars is the posters that adorn our walls. Many, if not all of those posters are done by Drew Struzan. The legendary artist recently spoke with Fanhattan about whether or not he’ll return to the Star Wars universe. 

Fanhattan: Last time you and I chatted, you talked about being retired, so I’m thrilled to see new work from you. Are you working on any big new projects.

Drew Struzan: Oh, well, never say never, [laughs] because…in fact, I got a couple calls already this week on Star Wars from Disney. Oh my god, I’m trying to be retired! You know, I spent 35 years painting Star Wars. [laughs] I painted Star Wars before most of you were born! But I guess there is always a chance. There’s no intention. But I would love to have a day off every now and again, and I have to work a weekend and all through the night. If the opportunity arises, it will be a real temptation. But it’s going to have to be a real temptation to get me away from my wife and my little grandkids and my family. Away from the green trees and the blue skies for a change instead of just locked in the studio. But, you know, never say never. All things are possible.”

For now we have to sit and await. Personally, I’ll be clearing some space for that seventh Struzan Star Wars poster.

Bob is putting up the weekend box office totals too much work?

 " it’s going to have to be a real temptation to get me away from my wife and my little grandkids and my family."

That's a pretty simple translation, the only true question is how many zeroes is he looking for?

Wiseguy, Box Office mojo was late this week with their numbers and a three day weekend.. I'll get it up next week.

 I just read j.j. Abrams was interested in directing the new star wars. true or no?

 I just read that too Wildwestie...not sure if it is true, but it is in print

WarCry, I am going to give the old man the benefit of the doubt and assume he really does want to relax and is not leveraging for more zeros.   but what do I know...
