Whose backstory in the Star Wars universe would Wes Anderson take on if he could?

Jan. 2, 2013by: Niki Stephens

What would you think of Wes Anderson taking on an episode of STAR WARS? Maybe he could do an off-shoot, and have a film that would be entirely stop-motion animation. Hey, it's just a thought.

To be fair, Anderson doesn't think he'd ever get the chance anyway. It has nothing to do with the fact that he doesn't have any ideas, but he isn't the guy to go for in terms of action. Could he put together a compelling story? Perhaps, but taking the Wes Anderson out of Wes Anderson for STAR WARS sounds like an interesting and complex task. If the director did get a chance, there's one character's backstory he thinks he could effectively handle.

In an interview with Deadline.com, Anderson addresses the possibility:

DEADLINE: Star Wars was among the films that influenced you early on. What would the world get if Wes Anderson signed on to direct one of these new Star Wars films Disney will make?

ANDERSON: Well I have a feeling I would probably ultimately get replaced on the film because I dont know if I have all the right action chops. But at least I know the characters from the old films.

DEADLINE: You are not doing a good job of selling yourself as a maker of blockbusters.

I'd be interested to see his take on Han Solo

but I'd like to see him use some of the material from Timothy Zahn's trilogy. I really liked the idea that Han Solo was a washout from the Imperial Academy before becoming a smuggler.

No, please, no. I know I am a minority in this, but I cannot stand any of his films.

I know it would never happen, but I would love to see his take on a Star Wars film. He is far from being a bad choice.
