Re: Who should be the Director for Star Wars Episode 7?

Brad Bird. With The Iron Giant, he showed that he understands the 50's scifi and serials that inspired Star Wars in the first place. With The Incredibles and Ratatouille he showed that he can work effectively with the CGI characters and other elements that are so common in Star Wars films, and can make a great family-friendly yet exciting action film with the former. With Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, he showed that he can competently make a compelling and exciting live-action film with some great high tension drama and action sequences. He's also an excellent screenwriter, so he can oversee the final script and make sure everything works well. He hasn't done a lot of films, but what he has done have been very good.
'First Contact' is the tale of a man who just wants to cash in on his creation so he can get wasted on an island full of naked women, but his fans keep insisting that he's a saintly visionary who has profoundly altered the world. AKA - 'I Don't Want to be a Statue: The Gene Roddenberry Story.'
