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.

5 Ways ‘Batman V Superman’ Can Justify ‘Man of Steel’ #SDCC

Jul 28 2014 8:00am CDT | Source: screen rant

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice will bring us the next chapter in director Zack Snyder’s burgeoning DC Movie Universe – and for better or worse (depending who you are), the foundation for that universe is Henry Cavill’s Superman, as depicted in the film Man of Steel. Fan debate still rages (and we do mean rages) over Snyder’s interpretation of the Superman character and lore  – with part of the blame and/or praise going to script contributors Chris Nol ...

Warner Bros. blew the roof off Comic-Con immediately by bringing director Zack Snyder out to Hall H, introduced with some awesome concept art in motion from Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman has been revealed in an exciting first-look by Zack Snyder, who was presenting his Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice at Comic-Con 2014. Glad in Xena-esque get-up, Gadot's Diana Prince looks almost like a gladiator, with the costume design going for more of a fantasy feel than a sci-fi vibe.

Yes, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice made it to Comic-Con today after all. And in fact, Warner Bros. kicked off their big Hall H panel with the hugely anticipated DC film. A huge wrap-around screen was unveiled in the hall and a Batman/Superman animation played. It’s not clear if these were animatics or just something put together for the con but it featured various cool images of the World’s Finest heroes. Nice, but was this all we were getting? No!
