Re: George Lucas: Star Wars stood on the shoulders of Star Trek
I'd rather see someone like Alex Proyas tackle Star Trek. Dark City
was probably his finest hour (or two) and he cowrote the script as well. I think he could handle the visual eye candy requirements and perhaps provide a little brain candy as well. Unfortunately, he's not had a lot of box office success.
