David Fincher Confirms He Was Asked To Direct Star Wars Episode VII – AMC Movie News

In a recent interview with David Fincher, The GONE GIRL director confirmed that he was indeed in talks to direct STAR WARS EPISODE VII shortly after the purchase by Disney was complete. Fincher said he met with producer Kathleen Kennedy but that ultimately he didn’t think it was fit saying the following: “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.”
