Bad news.

Director Zack Snyder has come forward to deny a report claiming he’s journeying to a galaxy far, far away.

New York magazine’s Vulture blog reported Monday that Snyder, the director behind 300, Watchmen and the upcoming Man of Steel, is developing a Star Wars movie. According to the site, the feature would not be part of the planned numbered trilogy but would be an off-shoot tonally in the vein of the Japanese classic The Seven Samurai.

But in an exclusive statement to The Hollywood Reporter, Snyder’s spokesperson says: “While he is super-flattered because he is a huge fan, Zack is not involved in any way with the new Star Wars. He is currently in post on his two films, Man of Steel and 300: Battle of Artemisia.

    We can still shoot the messenger, though, right?

    Honestly, it’s like Star Wars doesn’t want its fans to have nice things, some days.
    I actually saw both the original story and the denial first on a toy forum I read. Didn’t see the retraction until after retweeting you, though.
