    ^This

    Why Seven Samurai ? Kurosawa has done a lot films worth taking ides from, why does it have to be the Seven Samurai again and again and again !

    Since it isnt part of the "numbered" movies they could use the Throne of Blood story, featuring rogue Jedi Knights (since it's set after ROTJ), Sith force spirits manipulating them. guys its badass !

    I'm a Star Wars nut, Seven Samurai is one of my absolute favorite movies ever and I think Zack Snyder has a great visual eye. Still divided about my opinion of him as a director in general, but that could all change after MoS which looks fantastic. So this news sure got me a bit wet, I can't deny that.

    I don't want a straight remake of Seven Samurai, but taking the concept and putting it in such a wildly different context, intrigues me.

    They denied it. Doesn't mean it isn't true. And they never specified what Star Wars movie. Episode VII? Or the Seven Samurai? Publicists are paid to do these things.

    Interesting. I wonder what that might mean for a possible MoS2, or his desire to do one.

    not particularly this, but this exact kind of thing is why i was so excited when i first heard the Disney/Lucasfilm buyout news.

    i just thought it would take 10 or 15 years before it would be allowed to happen.

    Star Wars needs to be the same kind of thing as WWII movie. in the sense that u can have From Here To Eternity, Saving Private Ryan and Inglorious Bastards all be WWII movies.
    this is so rad.

    Do the 7 all have to be Jedi? Why not 7 differing warrior/bad ass types? A Jedi, a droid, a bounty hunter, a Dathomir witch, A smuggler, a slicer and a pilot?

    This has already been debunked, but yes they would all have to be Jedi. Just like they were all Samurais, and all Cowboys.

    I think Zack came in for a pitch for maybe Episode 7 and along the way pitch his spinoff idea. But the problem is that his idea cannot contradict what Arndt, Kinberg and Kasdan (and now JJ) are planning for Episode 7, and the perhaps the future Episodes. I think that's why it probably didn't work out with Zack.

    I like the idea. Hopefully they can still work something out.

    So I guess this means that the fanboy desired Boba Fett solo film will get made-- but of course there's going to be all kinds of backbiting before an official script gets written, will anything possibly live up to the "what if" speculation of it? You can fill a galaxy with all the fan-fiction, official novels and comics written.. we'll see..

    I wouldn't mind an adaption of the Enemy of the Empire storyline. We would get Boba, Vader, and see them fight each other. The rest of the story could be tweaked as its a bit forgettable (but not as forgettable as the Death, Lies, and Treachery series), but I think it could draw a crowd.
