Steven Spielberg has broken our hearts a little.
Not by telling us something we hadn’t already worked out but by telling us something we had hope wouldn’t be true.
He believes he’ll never direct a Star Wars movie.
We’ve known that he almost directed one of the original trilogy many moons ago and he helped with a few scenes in Episode II but there was always mumurs in fan circles that he would direct one of the movies himself one day.
But it seems it’s simply not to be: “I’m never going to make a Star Wars film. That’s not my genre,” he said.
“It’s certainly my buddy’s — the Thomas Edison of science fiction – George Lucas, who created the entire series. But that was never for me. I’m just a fan; I’m just with everybody else in the audience watching them.”
Well, we know that the Star Wars Saga will always be a little less thrilling because of the lack of his involvement but we can’t blame him for wanting to be in the audience, getting thrilled like the rest of us, can we?
Would you have liked to see him direct a movie a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away?
