Zack Snyder is developing a Star Wars Movie? Updated, maybe not

So it isn’t official yet, but the rumor is that Zach Snyder is going to be directing a movie in the Star Wars universe. Apparently it would be inspired by the Seven Samurai. Zach Snyder isn’t the most solid director ever, but It would be nice to see a visually compelling Star Wars movie for a change. Does this officially one of my predictions for 2013 correct? Damn I’m good. Thoughts?


Zack Snyder’s people has denied this is true saying to the Hollywood Reporter:

“While he is super flattered because he is a huge fan, Zack is not involved in any way with the new Star Wars. He is currently in post on his two films, Man of Steel and 300: Battle of Artemisia.”

Half Credit?

Superman, Meet Terrence Malick!

Zack Snyder’s first crack at bringing us a Superman film that isn’t dreadfully boring is only a year away and with The Dark Knight Rises coming out this past weekend, most theaters got a print of this teaser.  There are two versions with different voiceovers; one being Supermans earthly father played by Kevin Costner, and the other voiced by his kryptonian father played by Russell Crowe.

I think that this might be the film to transition Snyder from substance over style, and with Christopher Nolan producing, maybe he can help bring the best tendencies out of Snyder.  Already this trailer evokes an incredibly pastoral sensibility, different in tone to any of the previous Superman films.  I think that if Snyder can channel a bit more of the Malick-like nature this trailer seems to hint at, but keep the action kinetic and make Superman do more than be the world’s greatest outfielder, he could be on to something.

Man of Steel comes out next summer, but this trailer will hold you over.  I’m excited.
