Cast This: Who should direct Star Wars: Episode VII?

Nov. 2, 2012by: Niki Stephens

Now that Disney is the proud owner of LucasFilm, we get another STAR WARS movie. YAY!

So come on, Schmoes-- help us figure out who should direct STAR WARS: EPISODE VII?

To start with, how cool is it that we even get to have this discussion? While I am thankful to George Lucas for the universe, it's time to breathe new life into it cinematically. But now that we do have the opportunity to figure out who we think would be best suited for the job...who the heck do we choose??? When news first hit Lucasfilm was selling to Disney, you guys started to throw names out for the next potential director. What were some of the names? J.J. Abrams, Andrew Stanton, Brad Bird, and Guillermo del Toro.

Another thing on the minds of those intrigued by EPISODE VII is the story they plan to go with. It seems that Disney wants to do something original. Will they go with a director who will write the script as well? It's anyone's guess at this point. For now, let's just find someone to helm this thing and worry about the rest of that business later. I am excited to see what you guys come up with.

Do. Or do not. There is no try. Give us your directing choice for STAR WARS: EPISODE VII!

RESULTS FROM PREVIOUS 'CAST THIS': WHO SHOULD DIRECT THE EXPENDABLES 3?

1. John Woo 2. John McTiernan 3. Walter Hill

John Woo was undoubtedly the clear winner here. The second pick, John McTiernan was good, but may not work until he gets his legal troubles out of the way. If Woo was never brought up, I would have suggested McTiernan as well. Walter Hill barely slid into the third spot. Renny Harlin was giving him a run for his money. There was mention that Tony Scott would have been a good choice as well if he were still with us. I think he would have been a great option, too.

Dream choice would be Takashi Miike, but that would never happen.
My pick: Joe Cornish.
He wrote "The Adventures of Tin Tin" which is a great adventure movie, and followed it up directing "Attack the Block" a sci-fi action movie with low budget and plenty of practical FX. A talented directed with a great eye for genre films.

It's about who would be able to bring something to the property without getting in the way of it. That's easier said than done since undoubtedly every director working today has felt the effects of Star Wars, and many of them grew up worshipping it. In some ways its an unenviable task.

I think they need to bring in someone with an animation background. Brad Bird is a good choice, but there are others, some whom have yet to make the transition I'd be willing to trust. The Camerons and the

I think they need to bring in someone with an animation background. Brad Bird is a good choice, but there are others, some whom have yet to make the transition I'd be willing to trust. The Camerons and the Whedons are out to blaze their own trail, and del Toro might if he didn't have his plate already overflowing with projects. But getting bought by Disney is a great opportunity to unite two former Lucas properties with Pixar talent and the Star Wars saga. That movie was a groundbreaking feat, and James Cameron aside, Pixar is the only place where they are actively pushing the aesthetic envelope.

It still has a high probability to lose, but as great as Spielberg is, I still would think this might be a step down for him. Plus, he's at DreamWorks already.

Brad Bird, David Yates, or J.J. Abrams are my top three picks

Wouldn't mind someone like Josh Trank or Matt Reeves either. Duncan Jones and Rian Johnson I've seen people bring up but I think they're more "out there" picks. To me, I look at it as: Who has the credentials or the established body of work that could mesh well with the universe as well as feel like a "STAR WARS" movie directed by or co-produced by George Lucas? There has to feel like a blend between the past and the present; kind of like what we see on "CLONE WARS." Dave Filoni is granted

It'll be someone Disney has had success with before and isn't busy right now. So it will either be Gore Verbinski or Brad Bird as their plates are pretty empty, and they've made Disney a lot of money already. Everyone else has something on.

More than likely though, they will go the Harry Potter route and have a different director for each film; which is actually not unlike the original trilogy.

Gore Verbinski is spending 200 millions on a Lone Ranger movie. How much his Star Wars movie would cost is reason alone to bet this would never happen.

it's about who we want...

not who we think will get it, and I would love to see J.J.Abrams get to job.
other than that
Spielberg or the Wachowskis

Realistic choices

These are who I think seem possible as far as big name directors go.
Jon Favreau
Gore Verbinski
Rian Johnson
Brad Bird
Joe Johnston
and I'm going to say Robert Zemeckis just because he's my favorite director.
Be real people. J.J. Abrams? Are you serious. And who actually thinks Joss Whedon has time? They're aiming at 2015 for release remember?

The obvious choice would be Steven Spielberg... or his wannabe JJ Abrams. Some inspired and more adult ones that would also fit the franchise would be Nolan (a fan of the series), Guillermo Del Toro (just imagine his creature ideas), Duncan Jones or Rian Johnson (both young and talented genre directors).

As for some realistic candidates, I'd say Kosinsky (he already worked with Disney and created a beautiful looking and sounding movie) or some former Pixar guys like Andrew Stanton and Brad

I wouldn't have a problem with either of those guys. Of course there's still a chance that the gig might go to some long-time executive for Lucas Arts.

Brad Bird would be my #1 pick

Duncan Jones ("Moon" proved that he can handle a great original sci-fi story)
Joss Whedon (busy w/ the Avengers)
Alfonso Cuaron
Alex Proyas.

.Alfonso Cuaron (drama, light comedy, adventure, dark) Prisoner of Azkaban / Children of men
Drew Goddard (light comedy, action, nerd respect)
Sam Mendez (good drama, gritty) Skyfall / Jarhead

I would like to see a Zack Snyder style Star Wars, with epic slow motion and brutal battles. But I know slow motion isnt a Star Wars thing.

My Personal Top 5 & Most Likely Top 5

My Personal Top 5:
1. Stephen Spielberg - Honestly, I'm not the biggest Spielberg fan these days just because he's been so hit and miss as of late, but I really don't it requires any explanation why he'd be perfect for this.

2. Joss Whedon - It will never happen (Avengers 2), and I'm not the raving Whedon fanboy that some people are, bot tonally I think he would be pretty much a perfect fit for this.

3. Alfonso Cuaron - I think his experience with Children of Men and Harry Potter make
My Personal Top 5:
1. Stephen Spielberg - Honestly, I'm not the biggest Spielberg fan these days just because he's been so hit and miss as of late, but I really don't it requires any explanation why he'd be perfect for this.

2. Joss Whedon - It will never happen (Avengers 2), and I'm not the raving Whedon fanboy that some people are, bot tonally I think he would be pretty much a perfect fit for this.

3. Alfonso Cuaron - I think his experience with Children of Men and Harry Potter make him pretty uniquely qualified for this. He can handle the scope and the ensemble aspect, but he'd bring a weight to it that has was lacking in the prequels without bogging it down too much in self-seriousness.

4. Rian Johnson - He has just about all of the buzz in the world surrounding him after the critical success of Looper. He can handle sci-fi action but has also demonstrated a lighter side with his previous films. It also should be noted that Empire and Return of the Jedi weren't directed by nobody's but they weren't directed by absolute A-List filmmakers either, and Johnson seems to fit this same mold.

5. Spike Jonze - Surprisingly Spike lobbied really hard to direct Attack of the Clones and was pretty close to landing the part at one point. He's not the first name that comes to mind with Star Wars, but he's a devout fan and a very talented filmmaker. Sounds like a pretty good recipe for success to me.

The Top 5 Directors Most Likely To Do This:
1. Stephen Spielberg - He almost directed Return of the Jedi and is so tight with Lucas that I honestly think he stands a good chance of taking this on himself.

2. Brad Bird - Disney loves this guy right now, he's proven his box office and critical appeal with live action films and his blend of action and humor seems like a natural fit for the Star Wars films.

3. Gore Verbinski - Disney also loves this guy and if The Lone Ranger doesn't launch a franchise the way Disney hopes it will then I think there is a very good chance that he'll take this on instead.

4. David Yates - He's only worked with Warner Bros (honestly he seems like a really obvious shoo-in to direct a DC superhero flick) but if he's not contractually obligated to them then I think he's one of the most obvious choices there is, and not a bad one. He's got a solid track record both critically and commercially, and can handle the scope of such an ambitious project.

5. Joseph Kosinski - Disney was happy enough with his work on Tron Legacy to do his own pet project as a followup, and if that pays off he'll be their little sci-fi golden boy and I think there's a good chance they could entrust him with this.

Blech. Fresh Meat Only

I'm gonna cheat a bit and not give one, but I'll qualify that by saying it's because the answer should be know one we are familiar with. Lucas brought a vision to the first film that was born from being on the fringe of filmmaking. Somewhere out there is a scifi geek who has been making well crafted short films, and is only waiting for his shot to bring innovation to the feature length medium. We should be trying away from directors who feel the urge to make continued abuse of CGI and instead

We should be trying away from directors who feel the urge to make continued abuse of CGI and instead find someone, like maybe someone with experience working for the Jim Henson company, that is willing to put he time and effort into set building, makeup, and animatronics. Think about it. The attention to the details of reality are what made the original trilogy magical and alluring versus the three modern films that made the viewer alienated from a story whose setting was nowhere real. New name for the new movies. Fresh talent, fresh films.

Gore Verbinski all the way

He's shown he can handle a big budget as well as big action and humor. Plus, he's already got a track record with Disney.

I'm betting he'll be their go to man. David Yates would be my second and Joe Johnston my second.

All the best options are uncertain

I'm surprised nobody has suggested Seth McFarlane, one of the biggest star wars/star trek nerds out there.
Serious candidates I'd consider:
Christopher Nolan (unlikely he'd even do it)
Peter Jackson (unable due to the Hobbit)
Joss Whedon (unlikely due to Marvel obligations)
Spielberg (not sure he'd do it out of respect for Lucas, his best friend)
Bryan Singer (now that he's directing Days of Future Past, kinda unlikely)
Verbinski (could be a good choice given success with Pirates films)

Practical effects please? I'll take Guillermo!

I would much prefer a practical effects Star Wars movie and not an over abundance of CGI. I would really like to have Guillermo Del Toro involved, even if he is not a directing I think it would be wise to have him help.

As important as having a good director director is, having a good screen writer is then more so. Just look at Prometheus. Ridley Scott made the movie incredible, even though the script was subpar at best. I just think that if Ridley had the same writer he had for Kingdom of Heaven, Prometheus would have been more than a showcase for Ridley to show he still can flex his sci fi muscles, and be the spiritual sucsessor to Alien and overall masterpiece it should have been.

1. Joss Whedon (Most likely to stay true to past source material and mythology)
2. Peter Jackson (unlikely with Hobbit Trilogy)
3. J.J. Abrams (Without Lens Flare)
4. Neil Blomkamp (Not too sure, only due to that he would most likely pass in order to create something original)
5. Rian Johnson (Brick is his American Graffiti, EP VII would most likely have more of a sophisticated dialog)

I think for something this big, to get people excited, and honestly it just makes the most sense, Steven Spielberg for at least the first one. Then from there, Peter Jackson...and I love Edgar Wright, and Edgar loves Star Wars, I think I'd trust him. No way in hell would Fincher ever want to do Star Wars, I cannot see that happening.

I am a fan of a lot of Kevin Smith films but even the films of his that I enjoy or directed horribly. He is not a good director, so he should not be involved in a new Star Wars movie. I am board with the other two choices though!

Spielberg

After seeing Skyfall I'd like the dream team of Sam Mendes and Roger Deakins. They used a lot of miniatures and in-camera effects, which I'd like to see brought back into Star Wars. But I know that's wishful thinking. We'll end up with a CG-fest like The Avengers. In that case, let's have Spielberg direct.

Theres only ONE director working in the business now that should be allowed near this property and that is David Fincher. No overrated Nolan (we dont need no soules, boring, over-serious Star wars film) We need true vision and Fincher has that in Spades. No Guilmero either. He made one good movie (Pans Labyrinth) and thats about it.

Brad Bird.

The man can spin stories so well that he's Pixar's all-time favorite guy. Then he makes Ghost Protocol and proves that he can handle big-time flicks with grand settings as much as he can animated characters. Star Wars needs to be told with Pixar-style storytelling, Ghost Protocol-style cinematography, and Disney-style visuals with their monster budget. If for some reason Brad is busy, go with Gore Verbinski. Don't trust him? Watch Rango, then decide.

Andrew Stanton

He's a Disney director who has experience with scifi directing "John Carter". Brad Bird, Duncan Jones, and Neill Blomkamp would also be great.

JJ Abbrams, Peter Jackson, and Christopher Nolan are all too stylized and personal to do a Star Wars movie and work with disney. They need a solid director that will treat the movie as part of a franchise, not as another movie in the directors repertoire. And Joss Whedon has enough to worry about in the Marvel Universe, he would take two massive

Most important is getting a director who will not allow himself to be pushed around by studio heads. Who won't buckle under the weight of a massive production, and will fight to preserve a unique vision on characters & storytelling. If they go for a big-name director, I'd love to see a Danny Boyle or Brad Bird.

For an up-and-comer...I'd say best possibilities might be Duncan Jones, Joe Cornish (Attack the Block, wrote script for Tintin), or Drew Goddard (Cabin in the Woods.)

They can do action, drama, tension, comedy, and all on the epic scale. Plus, lets face it, episode 4 was a western, and they have proven they can do that genre quite well... Now its time for them to finally tackle the sci-fi space genre.
