Well, he fits the "new generation" mould, so why the hell not.

Yes he would. And he has geek cred. In many ways, I wouldn't mind if Edgar Wright took a shot at Star Wars despite his busy schedule. But it seems like he's so apathetic towards the series post-Prequels, along with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, that I don't he would say yes to it.

But if Edgar puts his heart into it, I think he could make an amazing Star Wars. But with Joe, who has the same sensibilities as Edgar but without the public dislike of the Prequels, he might be the winning ticket.

I think Edgar has no legit reason to be apathetic anymore, since Lucas is out.

He can get ****ed as far as I'm concerned. and Pegg already let bygones be bygones as he voiced Dengar in the Clone Wars.

Anyway I am still hoping for Brad Bird.

I expect it's down to Fincher and Bird. Bird's resume and Disney connections are clear. However...

Fincher was supposed to do 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea for Disney, and Kathleen Kennedy produced Benjamin Button. She said it was likely going to be someone she worked with before. So I think the nod is going to go to Fincher, who after all always wanted to do a SW film.

Like teenage girls, we want the ones that could care less about directing it, yet don't want the ones that are gung ho about directing it.

When did Fimcher say he wanted to do a SW film? Plus I dont remember Kennedy saying it could be someone shes worked with before.

Not that I'm complaining. If Fincher directed SW I would be excited as ****.

I hope it's a no-name director that will give us a fresh new look at SW.

But that's just me I guess.

In the video on the Star Wars website, Kennedy said she was "looking forward to talking with people I've worked with before," when asked about the director position.

Fincher said he wanted to make 20,000 Leagues his own "Empire Strikes Back." A website quoted him in his youth as saying he always wanted to make an Alien and a SW film--he's already done one...

A David Fincher-directed STAR WARS. Now that's intriguing.

See I feel that Fincher is in the same area as Nolan, both talented, but I don't know if they could handle Star Wars, both do like "darker" tales, especially Fincher.

I would not be against either per se. I just think there may be some others more suited to the job. But hey, I'm sure they will pick who's right for it.

See im a 100% fincher but 0% for Nolan. Me being a nolan fan. Nolan is just too damn cold and sterile for star wars. Fincher can really bring emotion and passion. Plus he is visually something else. My only caveat is he needs to leave Trent Reznor at home. Do not want him doing a star wars soundtrack.

I disagree about them being sterile. Honestly I think Fincher has a more cold aspect. But to eaches own. That's why I never cared much for Button as a film. Meaning I think his attempt to be "soft" did not really win me over.

Ok i hate Benjamin Button. Watching it once was too much. To me it is Finchers least fincher film but i couod be wrong. Im sure its fans wpulf srgue that point.

See that's why I feel Fincher may not be the best choice like Nolan, because their best movies are far from light hearted fun adventures. Quite the opposite. Now I believe directors can evolve and change, but both have a reputation of dark heavier films.

I am a big Nolan fan and I like Fincher as well, but I'd certainly say Fincher edges more towards the weird and dark in his films than Nolan. I think Nolan has the spirit of the boys own adventure in his films, the thing he struggles with is lighter warmth, but neither would be my choice for Star Wars.

Don't forget, Fincher has a SW pedigree--he worked on the ROTJ AT-STs.

Those of you down on Fincher, think about this--his favorite Star Wars film is ESB, and he's always wanted to make his own version of that. So how does three episodes of ESBesque SW sound to you? It sounds great to me!

Connecting people to Star Wars is not the only thing. Additionally Nolan is a massive fan as well, his first films as a kid involved his Star Wars toys. And I don't know if he struggles with it Hunter he's just never really had a film where he wanted to try it.

Wright's already doing a movie for Disney due in November 2015. He's been working on this little (dun, dun, dush) movie since 2008, I think it's about time he finishes it.

Totally agree. They each bring something to the table that could work, but I don't think either has the full package.

Yet, I'd still happily pay to see what their versions of a Star Wars movie would be.

If by some chance Fincher does get the gig though, Trent Reznor better stay the **** away from this movie, lol.

I like David Fincher, but I've been hoping he would helm a future Batman franchise. If he wants to do a SW film, I'm all for it.

David Fincher's all kinds of wrong for this, imo. Same as Nolan.
