Zack Snyder denies involvement with Star Wars

Jan 15 2013, 4:20am CST | by

Zack Snyder has confirmed he is not involved with the new 'Star Wars' films.

The 'Man of Steel' filmmaker was previously rumoured to be directing 'Star Wars Episode 7' after Walt Disney bought the franchise from George Lucas last year, and it was thought he was also working on a spin-off movie alongside the sci-fi production.

Vulture reported his other film would run parallel to the new trilogy, taking inspiration from one George's favourite films - Akira Kurosawa's 1954 flick 'Seven Samurai' - and replacing the ronin characters with Jedi.

However, Zack's representative has confirmed he will not be taking part in anything to do with the popular project.

They told The Hollywood Reporter: ''While he is super flattered because he is a huge fan, Zack is not involved in any way with the new 'Star Wars'. He is currently in post on his two films, 'Man of Steel' and '300: Battle of Artemisia'.''

The new 'Star Wars' film is currently being penned by 'Toy Story 3' writer Michael Arndt, but a director has yet to be confirmed even though several filmmakers - including Steven Spielberg - have ruled themselves out.

Joss Whedon had expressed interest in helming the new film, but has now explained he had no time to consider the offer as he was too busy working on 'The Avengers 2' and popular TV series 'S.H.I.E.L.D'.

He said: ''I'm as angry as you should be. When I heard that I was like, 'I wonder... no, I really can't do that. Oh, I already have a job'. I wouldn't clear 'The Avengers'.

''I'm having so much fun with that sequel right now, just with the script, that I couldn't imagine not doing it.''

'Star Wars Episode 7' is expected to be released in 2015.

‘Batman V Superman’ Set Photo Reveals Colorful New Supersuit

They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, and that has certainly been the case with Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Boasting a brand new take on Batman and Wonder Woman, it’s been known for some time that the film would also feature a change in color and style from the Superman suit debuted in Man of Steel. Despite Zack Snyder and Henry Cavill’s best attempts to keep the new suit under wraps, the first ...

Frank Miller Talks Comic Book Movies, ‘The Dark Knight’ & More

Aug 20 2014 6:05pm CDT | Source: screen rant

Comic book writer/artist/screenwriter/director Frank Miller has certainly left his mark on modern comic books – and, to a lesser yet still noteworthy degree, cinema. Over the past decade, there’ve been multiple popular film adaptations of his comic writing (the Sin City and 300 franchises) and superhero movies that were heavily influenced by his work on the printed page, such as Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy and the upcoming Batman V Superman ...

‘Batman V Superman’: Is Scoot McNairy Cyborg’s Missing Link?

Aug 20 2014 5:25pm CDT | Source: screen rant

When Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice was announced, few would have believed that in a cast reported to include Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Lex Luthor, Aquaman and more, it would be a lesser-known actor in a completely unknown role who got rumors swirling. But when set photos of Scoot McNairy (Argo, Monsters) dropped a major hint about his onscreen role, fans didn’t wait to start asking: had director Zack S ...

New 'Batman v Superman' Set Photos Prompt Superhero-Sized Speculation

Aug 20 2014 3:04pm CDT | Source: yahoo

While McNairy has talked openly about working with director Zack Snyder on the film, he’s been mum about whom he might be playing. So it’s possible that Snyder, in building his own Justice League, will ignore the fact that there’s a Flash TV series starting this fall, and introduce the character separately the film world. If so, perhaps McNairy’s shooting a scene in which Barry Allen has to take off somewhere without donning his tights.  Robin There have alr ...

Will ‘Batman V Superman’ Introduce The Flash?

Aug 19 2014 9:35pm CDT | Source: screen rant

By bringing DC Comics’ two heaviest hitters to-to-toe, the appeal of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice is obvious. Even so, it seems fans (and director Zack Snyder) are looking for any chance to add another superhero to the mix. Most recently, a pair of green socks led many to believe that The Flash would be joining the party, once again raising the question: will Batman V Superman end up introducin ...

We’ve seen photos of him on set, he appeared at Comic-Con to promote it, but not much has changed in regards to his feelings.

Aquaman Movie Nets 2 Screenwriters

Aug 12 2014 7:14pm CDT | Source: ign

It appears Warner Bros. has hired not one but two screenwriters to draft scripts for the upcoming Aquaman movie. The two writers, Will Beall and Kurt Johnstad, won’t be working together, however. They’ll each be writing their own draft so the studio can choose between them. Beall is best known for last year’s Josh Brolin-starring Gangster Squad, though he also worked on the TV show Castle for several years, and wrote an earlier draft of the Justice League movie. Johnstad wrote B ...

‘Batman V Superman’ Producer Reveals New Batman’s Age

Ben Affleck’s Caped Crusader in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice has been described by director Zack Snyder as someone who “bears the scars of a seasoned crime fighter.” That description nonetheless doesn’t reveal just how old, exactly, Affleck as Bruce Wayne is in the film. Indeed, given the acknowledged influence of Frank Miller’s Dark Knight Returns comic book, Affleck’s Mr. Wayne could already ...

Comic book fans wanting to see a Justice League team-up on the big screen for the first time still have over a year to wait before the characters are even introduced in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. But while director Zack Snyder’s superhero film promises to bring Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg and maybe even Aquaman together at last, the fact is they’re already joining forces somewhere else. One of DC’s most recent animated movies – Justice League: War – had Superman, Ba ...
