Kevin Smith. Give me a break. That might be the most awful suggestion I've ever heard for anything, ever.
Kevin Smith can write/direct serious material very well, and has a deep love of this particular subject matter. I think he'd do great, and I think if you think this suggestion is that awful, you haven't been exposed to the full range of Smith's movies - probably just Clerks, Mallrats, Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back, and Clerks II?

If we get Kevin Smith do we get Cock Knocker?
Well, at least if we did, George Lucas wouldn't sue somebody.
