Get the hell out of here!!!!
Two More Star Wars Movies Coming?
May 9, 2007
Fox411’s Roger Friedman talked to George Lucas at the all-star Time magazine dinner and got some interesting sound bites from the Indiana Jones 4 executive producer.
Lucas says that Sean Connery still hasn’t signed on, but his character, Indy’s dad, is in the script. Other than that, his lips are sealed.
Lucas said that he has seen all the summer movies since his company, Industrial Light & Magic, does most of the special effects. The only one they didn’t work on was Spider-Man 3. What did he think of it?
“It’s silly. It’s a silly movie,” he said. “There just isn’t much there. Once you take it all apart, there’s not much story, is there? People thought ‘Star Wars’ was silly, too,” he added, with a wink. “But it wasn’t.”
While Lucas is readying the new “Clone Wars” animated series, he told Friedman that he will make two more live-action films based in the “Star Wars” universe as well.
“But they won’t have members of the Skywalker family as characters,” he said. “They will be other people of that milieu.”
The two extra films will also be made for TV and probably be an hour long each. But, like “Clone Wars,” Lucas doesn’t know where on TV they will land.
I’d be more excited if he announced that he would be making a new trilogy. In my opinion, he doesn’t need to personally write the next trilogy. The best Star Wars movies were the ones that he didn’t write or direct (except for Revenge of the Sith which ruled!). And he always wanted Steven Spielberg and Ron Howard to direct a Star Wars movie. But alas, I’ll watch a Star Wars tv show. I have no problem there.
