David Fincher was approached for ‘Star Wars VII’

"I talked to Kathy about it, but I think that it's a different thing from... I don't know what Disney-Lucasfilm will be like"

‘Gone Girl’ David Fincher has revealed that he was approached about the possibility of directing ‘Star Wars VII,’ which wound up in the very capable hands of J.J. Abrams.

Fincher revealed that he had talks with Lucasfilm president Kathy Kennedy about helming the first sequel movie to the original ‘Star Wars’ trilogy.

“I talked to Kathy about it, but I think that it’s a different thing from… I don’t know what Disney-Lucasfilm will be like,” he told Total Film.

“It’s tricky,” he continued. “My favourite is The Empire Strikes Back. If I said, ‘I want to do something more like that’, then I’m sure the people paying for it would be like, ‘No! You can’t do that! We want it like the other one with all the creatures!’

“I always thought of Star Wars as the story of two slaves [C-3PO and R2-D2] who go from owner to owner, witnessing their masters’ folly, the ultimate folly of man.

“I thought it was an interesting idea in the first two, but it’s kind of gone by ‘Return of the Jedi.'”
