Wanna know the most surprising thing about the new planned Star Wars movies??
Not a lot of people are jumping at the chance to direct one!
We can understand there's a deep history to potentially ruin there, but you'd think more people would have the guts to do so!
Okay, we wouldn't say Wes Anderson doesn't have the guts. We'd say he's realistic in thinking his product probably wouldn't be the action movie people are expecting. Though, he would like to take a crack at a certain famous character's backstory…
Well I have a feeling I would probably ultimately get replaced on the film because I don’t’ know if I have all the right action chops. But at least I know the characters from the old films. I don’t think I would do a terrible job at a Han Solo backstory. I could do that pretty well. But maybe that would be better as a short.
We'd like the powers that be to take our money right now and get us a Wes Anderson directed Han Solo backstory! LOLz!
How incredible would that be?
Sure, it wouldn't look OR feel like Star Wars, but maybe that's what the series needs — at least as a short!
