Expresses Interest In Directing Star Wars 7.
We’ve been spending so much time confirming denials from directors who have no interest directing the recently announced Star Wars: Episode VII that it’s refreshing to finally hear from a reputable filmmaker who isn’t shying away from the daunting task of directing an Star Wars film and actually might be interested.
That’s the word from Jon Favreau, who didn’t exactly throw his hat into the ring for the coveted gig, but didn’t remove his name from consideration asso many other directors have done over the past few weeks. Speaking with EW, the Iron Man director admitted:
“The idea of another trilogy that further shrouds the Force in mystery as its secrets are lost to time – that’s extremely compelling. I want so bad for it to be good. Can you imagine?”
