I just read an interesting report that the New York Daily News did at a private dinner party that George Lucas attended.
Discussing Red Tails, and some troubles Lucas had getting the film made, among other things was also a brief discussion of the filmmaker’s plans to retire.
“I hate to say it, but basically I’m retiring,” said Lucas.
And later he spoke of the fact that now he can make movies for his own enjoyment, instead of having to “have to worry about entertaining people.”
I’m thinking this means he’ll make more movies, but not necessarily ones that will be box office smash hits, or big budget Hollywood films. What do you think?
