If we were just going wish list though, I'd LOVE to see a David Fincher SW film.
Fincher would be too dark. He'd probably end the movie with the black leather S&M-looking mass murderer bad guy winning and someone's family member getting a body part chopped off... oh, wait.

M. Night Shyamalan. And you thought Darth Vader being Luke's father was a twist!
Shyamalan would be too gimmicky. He'd probably do some stupid twist like have the girl the main character was in love with turn out to be his sister or make the setting look like the distant future of humanity when in fact it actually takes place a long time ago in a galaxy far far away... oh, wait.

Put me in the Spielberg camp.

Ridley Scott second choice.
Spielberg would be too saccharin. He'd probably try to wrap things up with a completely premature happy ending at the end of the film with fireworks and celebrations even though the bad guys hadn't actually been eliminated yet and were still incredibly powerful... oh, wait.

Scott would be too convoluted. The audience would just want a tale about people fighting aliens and he'd probably try and tell some needlessly complex story centering on taxation of trade routes, blockades, and ridiculous political intrigue... oh, wait.

Michael Bay.
Bay would be too dependent on CGI. There'd probably be hundreds of completely indistinguishable robots running around fighting and spaceships swooping around asteroids like they're airplanes... oh, wait.

I withdraw my objections.
'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.'
