Well perhaps not.
According a Snyder rep, a report this morning he is developing a Star Wars film that would be based on the Seven Samurai is not true.
“While he is super flattered because he is a huge fan,” states the rep, “Zack is not involved in any way with Star Wars. He is currently in post [production] on his two films, Man of Steel and 300: Battle of Artemisia.”
This doesnot mean that Snyder will never work on Star Wars, but being so busy at the moment, Snyder doesn’t seem to have the time to develop anything at the scope of a Star Wars movie.
I recently read Star Wars #1 and I have to say, I really enjoyed it. It was very refreshing to see, what essentially looks to me like a reboot, come to the world of Star Wars comic books.
Seeing the comic books revisit the classic trilogy era really gave me the feeling of something fresh. I find this somewhat paradoxical because it is set in an era and that’s been used over and over again. However, for me it was refreshing to have a comic that I didn’t feel like I had to read 200 previous issues to fully appreciate.
Because the expanded universe has gone so far outside of the familiar territory of the films, it’s nice to see a comic book very closely tied into the on-screen saga.
As a big fan of the movies I have to say; Dark Horse, you have me hooked. I’m interested.
Something that hasn’t happened in recent times with a Star Wars comic
