George Lucas Says He's Done With Big Budget Films

The man that gave us Indiana Jones and Darth Vader says his blockbuster career is donezo.

George Lucas, head of the upcoming Red Tails, wants to retire form big budget. The director claims that Red Tails will be his last effects filled super-film.

It seems the director wants to settle down like Francis Ford Coppola and focus on small projects. His thoughts on a possible Star Wars Episode VII?

Why would I make any more when everybody yells at you all the time and says what a terrible person you are?

And the director stands by his "Nuke the Fridge" scene in Indy IV; a scene he had to convince Steven Spielberg to include.

The odds of surviving that refrigerator — from a lot of scientists — are about 50-50.

We wonder what sort of small budget film he'd like to work on next?

    How about retiring from that big budget poofy (definition = fluffy) hairstyle?

    He needs to suck it the F up and get back to work. Too much crap out there by others for him to hang it up. I need the postponed new Star Wars live action TV show in iTunes, not that fem Doctor Who BS. Man up and do what you do best!!!

    Yes, but do you know why? Because he's now finally realizing that f'in video game profits make making movie look like pocket change.

    AND WHAT'S SMALL BUDGET TO GEORGE LUCAS??? DUDE IS USED TO MAKING MOVIES IN THE 150-200+ MIL RANGE AND STILL MAKING A FUCKING HUGE PROFIT. SO SMALL BUDGET TO LUCAS COULD BE ANYTHING UNDER A 100 MIL. NO CHUMP CHANGE TO REGULAR FILM STUDIOS. BESIDES, LUCAS IS LISTED AS THE WORLD'S LARGEST INDEPENDENT FILMMAKER. HE BASICALLY DOES WHATEVER THE FUCK HE WANTS - ELSE HE FUNDS IT HIMSELF LIKE STAR WARS, RED TAILS.
