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?
I'm a fan of Smith's movies, and even I think it's an awful idea. He's done one
serious movie to date and it was the very first time he showed any genuine directing skill. But that's still far from being enough to be handed the keys to a big budget project like a Star Wars
Besides, Smith ultimately passed on The Green Hornet
because even he knew he wasn't up to the task of working on a movie with a large budget.
No, he's much better off staying on personal, low-budget projects.
