Re: Who should be the Director for Star Wars Episode 7?
Works for me I didn't want any of those to begin with.
I'm more on the Vaughan, Verbinski, style director bandwagon, someone who's talented but doesn't have a "style" of movie, I'm looking for competence, ability to handle both popcorn adventure and mythic seriousness, and willingness to match the tone of the OT.
But isn't Favreau in that bracket?
