The L.A. Times have reported that Zack Snyder (Man of Steel, Dawn of the Dead, Watchmen, 300) has removed himself from the pool of potential directors for the inevitable Star Wars Episode VII. Snyder, claiming that “it’s a slippery slope” couldn’t be more correct. Anyone who takes the job is asking for a deluge of criticism. Still, it has to be any young ’s dream. Snyder went on to say, “It’s a whole other mythological experiment I’m excited to see, but it’s a lot of effort.” He’s right on both counts.
The current favorite in the rumor mill is X-Men: First Class director Matthew Vaughn, who has recently and suddenly walked away from X-Men: Days Of Futures Past. We’ll have to wait for confirmation if this means he’s taken the job or not.
Who do you think should helm Star Wars Episode VII? Is it career suicide to take the challenge?
