Brad Bird rules himself out of Star Wars Episode VII

'Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol' director Brad Bird will not be directing the next 'Star Wars' movie despite being heavily touted.

Brad Bird has ruled himself out of directing the next 'Star Wars' movie.
The Oscar-winning director - known for his work on films including 'Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol' and animated classic 'The Incredibles' - was hotly tipped to take on the job of filming the seventh film in the series, but has now confirmed he is working on an alternative sci-fi picture.
Answering a series of questions on his twitter page, he said: ''Nope, a science fiction film. Not Star Wars. It's not Episode VII. (sic)''
When fans added he would be the perfect person to work on it, he said: ''Thanks. But the science fiction film I AM doing is gonna be good (sic)''
However, he admitted he is looking forward to seeing what Disney do with the franchise.
He wrote: ''That said, Michael Arndt is a fantastic writer and Kathy Kennedy is a brilliant producer. I will be first in line to see the new STAR WARS. (sic)''
Meanwhile, Carrie Fisher - who played the iconic Princess Leia in the first three films - has hinted she may come back and marry Harrison Ford's character Han Solo.
She said: ''I like the idea of being Mrs Solo, and we've just fought and fought and I killed him - but I'm sorry.''

Names like Rian Johnson, Brad Bird, Paul Thomas Anderson and Edgar Wright have all ...

Brad Bird and Edgar Wright Endorse Christopher Nolan’s INTERSTELLAR

Oct 21 2014 1:49pm CDT | Source: Collider

Every Christopher Nolan film nowadays comes with high expectations, but the anticipation for Nolan’s sci-fi epic Interstellar is, shall we say, outta this world (I’m so sorry).  Interest is at a fever pitch for the film, which promises astonishing visuals, scientifically grounded inter-dimensional travel, and strong performances from Matthew McConaughey, Jessica Chastain, etc.  As with all Christopher Nolan films, though, Interstellar has been shrouded in secrecy, so refre ...
