Ever since Disney's acquisition of Lucasfilm and the return of Star Wars to the big screen, many creators in Hollywood have thrown their hats into the ring hoping to get a chance to be involved.
One big name writer and director who is the most recent to make his aspiration to join the Star Wars saga know is Joss Whedon. Know as the creator behind several TV series such as Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Firefly and Angel, as well as more recently being a major driving force behind Marvel's first two Avengers films, Whedon has more than enough "geek cred" to helm a Star Wars film. Last week Whedon spoke with Complex about a variety of topics, and one question that was levied towards him inquired about what could be in the filmmaker's future. Apparently Whedon is interested in doing a certain type of Star Wars film, among other things:
"I mean, it’s a fun thing to do, to put yourself in the service of something if you think you can add an interpretation. It’s no different than any other storytelling. There are some times when you get micro-managed to death but with Marvel, they let me make two movies that were very much mine. So do I want to make James Bond movie? Yeah. Anne Hathaway does Catwoman again? Sure, I’m in. Do I want to make a Star Wars movie? Yeah. I was like, "I don't want to make a Star Wars movie. Like, god dammit, why?" But I saw the trailer for Rogue awhile ago and I was like, "I want to do that." To make a Star Wars movie and not be wed to the bigger picture."
Would you like to see Joss Whedon be given his own Star Wars film? If so, what kind story would you like to see him tell? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
