David Fincher Reveals That He Met With Disney About Directing STAR WARS EPISODE VII

Well, this would have been interesting to see! Gone Girl director David Fincher (whose other credits include the likes of Fight Club and Se7en) has revealed that he did at one point meet with Kathleen Kennedy about helming Star Wars Episode VII. Read on for details!


J.J. Abrams is currently hard at work on bringing Star Wars Episode VII to the big screen, but had things played out a little differentely, he would be prepping for Star Trek 3 right now as David Fincher shot the highly anticipated follow-up to Return of the Jedi! In a recent interview with Total Film, the Gone Girl helmer revealed that he spoke to the studio about the movie, but it sounds as if he didn't feel sure about the project due to Disney's involvement. "I talked to Kathy about it, but I think that it's a different thing from... I don't know what Disney-Lucasfilm will be like." He added, "It's tricky. My favourite is The Empire Strikes Back. If I said, 'I want to do something more like that,' then I'm sure the people paying for it would be like, 'No! You can't do that! We want it like the other one with all the creatures!' "I always thought of Star Wars as the story of two slaves [C-3PO and R2-D2] who go from owner to owner, witnessing their masters' folly, the ultimate folly of man... I thought it was an interesting idea in the first two, but it's kind of gone by Return Of The Jedi." Everything we've seen of Star Wars Episode VII so far indicates that it couldn't be further from "the other one with all the creatures", so perhaps Fincher never really got that far down the line in terms of talks? Either way, here's hoping he reconsiders somewhere down the line, especially if it was for one of the planned spin-off movies. What do you think?
