Re: Who should be the Director for Star Wars Episode 7?
I know Trevorrow's American. It was a tongue-in-cheek comment on arthouse/indie-meeting-Hollywood (hence the wink, and esp given Lucas' own proclivities) but can see why led to confusion. But I agree re: Whedon/Alien 4 and had forgotten Lynch was asked to do RoTJ. I personally think Lynch's Dune is a great example of what a genuinely visionary director can do with a SF epic, for all its flaws
