George Lucas says no more blockbusters

January 18th, 2012 by Paddy Comments

In a move that’s bound to disappoint those of us still holding a candle for more Star Wars on the big screen, George Lucas has announced that he will be making no more blockbusters after Red Tails.
“I’m moving away from the business, from the company, from all this kind of stuff,” Lucas told the New York Times.
He was certainly leaving no one in any doubt when asked about the possibility of more Star Wars films.
“Why would I make any more when everybody yells at you all the time and says what a terrible person you are?”

Paddy Ryan, like Buck Rogers, is a man out of time. He's a loose cannon haunted by his past who, when he's not making painful attempts at humour, is busy watching as many geeky films and TV shows as possible. An avid reader, he has vowed one day to start that novel he's been talking about for years. Born in the late 70s, he's an 80s kid at heart who sees nothing wrong with spending hours upon hours watching season three of Robin Of Sherwood. Jason Connery wasn't that bad you know! He's got a million ideas for comic books but thankfully doesn't know anyone with the time to draw them and call his bluff on that one! The Empire Strikes Back is his favourite film, Doctor Who is his TV show of choice and when it comes to books ... well that's a whole other story! I'm Paddy Ryan and you're not...
