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.”
