New Star Wars film being developed [update: maybe not]

Zack Snyder is working on a new Star Wars film.

IGN are reporting that the Man of Steel director is “developing a Star Wars project for Lucasfilm that is set within the series’ galaxy, though parallel to the next trilogy”. They say that the film will be a Jedi epic based loosely on Akira Kurosawa’s 1994 Seven Samurai. As some may know, George Lucas’ original Star Wars film was also inspired by Seven Samurai.

No other information is currently known on the project, though the website say that their sources say it won’t be a “numbered” episode,but rather a standalone film likely set after Return of the Jedi.

Of course, when Disney purchased LucasFilm, the Disney CEO Bob Iger stated that they wanted to make a new Star Wars movie every 2 or 3 years after the much-anticipated Episode VII, and that the new trilogy announced won’t be the only Star Wars film. This Snyder news ties in perfectly with that. Sources also say that any work on this planned film won’t start until after the planned 2015 release of Episode VII.

*UPDATE*

 

A spokesperson for Snyder has contacted The Hollywood Reporter to deny the report:

 

“While he is super-flattered because he is a huge fan, Zack is not involved in any way with the new Star Wars. He is currently in post on his two films, Man of Steel and 300: Battle of Artemisia.
