‘Man of Steel’ director Zack Snyder denies involvement with stand-alone ‘Star Wars’ film | Movie Talk – Yahoo! Movies

Zack Snyder’s reps have officially denied the “Man of Steel” filmmaker’s involvement in any new “Star Wars” film, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

According to an exclusive report earlier today by Vulture, Snyder was attached to developing a stand-alone “Star Wars” adventure, one that takes place after the events of the upcoming “Episode VII” (currently planned for release in 2015) but isn’t an “official” chapter in the new trilogy — a sort of large-scale (and supposedly authorized) piece of fan fiction, if you will.

Snyder’s film was allegedly going to be loosely based on Akira Kurosawa’s action classic, “Seven Samurai,” which focuses on a group of wandering samurai warriors hired to defend a small village against bandits. In Snyder’s reimagining, the samurai (or ronin, rather, as they are masterless) would’ve been replaced with Jedi Knights and their weapon of choice, the katana, would’ve been replaced with, of course, lightsabers. The film would have commenced with development sometime shortly after production began on “Episode VII.” (CLICK ON LINK BELOW TO READ MORE)
