Who would you want to direct EP3 if you could choose? GL does a good job but it could be soo soo soo much better. My choice would be bring back Irvin Kershner, he made the finest SW movie out there ESB. I was heard GL said the Irvin made it a better movie than it had to be?( whats wrong with that???) But I hope Lucas lets him. Maybe we should start a petition online to get it done? What do yall think? Then send it to LucasFilm and email to the official website or something?

I don't care for spielbergs take on the sci fi genre. AI sucked and i didn't like the feel or look of it. Minority Report has the same look. I want the next SW to be very,very,very, dark and not a kids movie. I wish George would not cut out all the violence but show people getting sliced in two and all the jedi dying. It should be real almost. Not like poof you dead. I hope e3 is the darkest and best SW film of them all.

I really was hoping back in 1999 that Lucas would hand over the director's chair to someone else. Even if you liked Episode II, I don't think you can argue that it is a well-directed film. The wipes seemed out of Abode Premiere, the edits were not crisp, the constant switching the camera to someone else while a character is still talking, the flat acting, the misuse of computer graphics all point to one man in the end - Lucas.

Of course he'll do Episode III, but there are three directors I wouldn't mind seeing.

---James Cameron. Before we get into a binge about Titanic, this man is responsible for some of the greatest science fiction, namely Aliens and Terminator 2. If Cameron had directed Attack of the Clones, you can bet the first scene would have been an epic Clone battle, full of intensity but layered with subtle humour.

---David Fincher. Here's a director who isn't afraid to take a walk on the dark side. Besides Panic Room's failure, Fight Club, The Game, Seven, and to a lesser extent Alien3 all protrayed vivid characterizations against a backdrop of anarchy, vile, and wickedness.

---Frank Darabont. He has the ability to bring out hope in the midst of tradegy, just what Episode III will show with the Jedi purge, but the birth of Luke and Leia. Though The Majestic didn't gel for some, his power in Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile still resonate today.

My vote would be for Ridley Scott. I think this darkest chapter in the SW Saga would be well done by him.

George Lucas

I think Frank Darabont could write one mean script for the movie though.

Let me write the script. I can write the darkest script ever. Nothing gets darker than TWWE not even EPISODE 3.

John Woo. There's a man who can make an action movie! Two words: Hard-Boiled!

Then again, I don't know if there are pigeons/doves in the Star Wars galaxy.

Ah, a fellow John Woo fan. I didn't know if anyone else would get the pigeon/dove reference.

Maybe the Jedi Temple could stand in for a church.

I wouldn't care if Lucus was still directing, just as long as someon else wrote the script, dialogue.

Like I said earlier let me write it. I can write some darn good dialogue. All of you will love the dialogue I have in mind for Anakin.

If you do not like what I write I will give you back the price for your ticket.

Of course that is if you hate the movie so much that you never plan to watch any Star Wars movie again.

First, James Cameron is not a Star Wars man. His movies may be action packed, but Star Wars also needs those down times too. Then, David Fincher is too dark and his movies generally make lil sense. Frank Darabont is a good choice, but his movies arent really effects driven.

Now, I really think Lucas should direct Ep III and i've always thought that. I don't think he shoulda directed Ep I or II cuz i think he shoulda directed the first and last chapters in the saga. But, if not him, Irvin Kershner should be the man to sit in the directors chair.

Monarche,

How can you say Cameron doesn't have downtimes in his movies? Why do you think Aliens and Terminator 2 succeeded so well? Not because of the constant action, but the immense tension built in-between the flurry of violence. And don't get me started on downtimes, Episode II nearly put me to sleep on opening night, no less!

In my opinion, no matter how many petitions you throw at Lucas for title changes or director changes are irrelevant.

Lucas WILL direct the next movie and name it what he wants. Period.

By the way Jonna the director's name from the Evil Dead series is Sam Raimi who is also the director of Spider-man.

I agree with you that George Lucas should and will direct Episode 3, but I have to wonder if you and I have been watching the same Fincher movies!:D ;) I'm a huge fan of this guy, and his movies have always made perfect sense to me.
