Brad Bird rules himself out of Star Wars Episode VII

Nov 19 2012, 4:01am CST | by

'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.''

TOP 5: TOMORROWLAND Trailer, THE JUDGE, GHOSTBUSTERS Reboot Confirmed with Paul Feig & Female Cast, WHIPLASH, The TRUE DETECTIVE Effect

Oct 11 2014 3:35pm CDT | Source: Collider

Highlighting a movie from a horror icon's filmography that was generally well received isn't exactly a reach, but somehow I still feel as if Sam Raimi's Drag Me to Hell doesn't get the praise it deserves. The 2009 release stars Alison Lohman and Justin Long in a simple tale of a bank loan officer who is cursed by an elderly woman after denying her an extension on a mortgage payment. The conceit may be straightforward, but Lohman's stellar perf ...
