Yeah we're all naturally skeptical as of now of course. However if they get a good director and cast on board and if the trailer looks fucking awesome then the buzz will be enormous. Perhaps this could be the star wars movie we all wanted to see back in 1999 but didn't get.

Anakin is the real hero. He is one who falls and redeems himself through martyrdom.

yeah yeah I know I know. But Luke Skywalker is more iconic than Hayden Christensen/little blonde boy. everyone from age 5 to 75 knows Luke SKywalker.

I love reports like this. Name drop, throw out a crazy unconfirmed rumor and your blog gets 3 million hits

http://io9.com/5958997/is-this-the-n...rs-episode-vii


Quote:
Has Disney already found the writer for Star Wars: Episode VII? One particular name is being thrown around, and when you think about it, it makes complete sense.

Vulture is reporting that Michael Arndt of Toy Story 3 and Little Miss Sunshine is a strong contendor for the job. Rumor has it he's already written a 40 to 50 page treatment. Arndt is beloved by Pixar, and has been secretly working on a treatment long before the merger.

Vulture continues on explaining that the studio wants to bring back the big three from the original Star Wars Han, Luke and Leia. Alas there are currently no deals in place. Once Arndt is finished with his treatment it's allegedly being handed off to Brad Bird, Steven Spielberg, and J.J. Abrams. This doesn't mean any of these big names will direct, but Disney isn't above dangling the bait. Sounds good to us, Arndt is a pro and a big time fan of Star Wars, hope this gets confirmed real soon.

depends on who gets put in charge of writing and directing

Marvel films have mostly been good because a team of comic book dorks got put in charge of the Marvel movie universe. Imagine how shit Avengers would have been in Michael Bay had made it.

i mean if you think about it joss whedon isn't exactly box office gold but they put him in charge of their most valuable property precisely because they correctly understood that he's written marvel comics before and has a knack for superheroes (and particularily villains, really) and disregarded his track record with stuff like alien ressurection or doll house

as always you are correct

to qualify, though, he did not have a lot of control over Alien Ressurection (he got screeplay credit but wasn't the only one monkeying with the script... plus he didn't direct, produce, etc.). Dollhouse was ruined by the network. They demanded major changes after greenlighting it. Specifically removing the sex and certain types of violence. Whedon pretty much lost control of the show. The network pressured him to deliver a sanitized "crime of the week" type format and to stay away from the theme and story arc that he had originally created for the show. It makes no sense that they even put the show on the air knowing Whedon's history. It sounded like the network wanted something more like Smallville or Vampire Diaries, etc. that would compete with other teen to twenty something dramas. I think some of the episodes were also shown out of sequence. All that messing with the show is a big reason why he's nolonger doing television.

Firefly was a great show, though. Luckily the network just plain shitcanned it before they ever got to the point of screwing up the scripts, production, etc.

generally speaking hollywood tends to frown on creators that don't play by their rules which makes the decision to hire whedon to write and direct avengers quite a gutsy call that really paid off

i remember the firefly movie having an excellent villain, and his depiction of Loki was one of the strongest i've seen but that was really helped along by tom hiddleston

but still, many times in the comics they have a tendency to portray him as mad or cartoonish but the seething jealousy of thor and his relationship with humanity really came through as motivation for a super villain that's often misused or portrayed without any depth or motivation

avengers as a whole had more depth, feeling and empathy for character than almost every single hollywood blockbuster these days and make no mistake that was certainly one of the reasons it was so well received and so successful. it seems disney's stewardship is more hands off than you may expect so perhaps this is the best thing for the star wars franchise. i always maintained that lucas's egotism in writing and directing all of the prequels even though he didn't do the same with the originals and his misguided and relentless drive to re-edit things really soiled his entire legacy. especially the direction, the acting is so flat and uninspired even from people like ewan mcgregor and liam neeson that you can only really blame the director for its dullness

you guys should read this article by raymond chandler called "writers in hollywood" it was written in the 40s and nothing has changed http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/...lywood/306454/

Quote:
HOLLYWOOD is easy to hate, easy to sneer at, easy to lampoon. Some of the best lampooning has been done by people who have never been through a studio gate, some of the best sneering by egocentric geniuses who departed huffily - not forgetting to collect their last pay check leaving behind them nothing but the exquisite aroma of their personalities and a botched job for the tired hacks to clean up...
opening paragraph
