Well the hot favourite is of course Joss Whedon who did a great job with a little known film called The Avengers. Guillermo Del Toro is another one who's past record with Pan's Labyrinth and Hellboy would make a good choice. Will this open the door for Spielberg to finally direct a Star Wars movie? He was linked for a while to The Empire Strikes Back so this may be his second chance at getting into the Star Wars universe. In favour with Disney at the moment and most likely is Gore Verbinski who directed the Pirates Of The Caribbean movies, Rango and the upcoming Lone Ranger with Johnny Depp. What about Steve Moffat who wrote the latest Tin-Tin movie, brought us the fabulous Sherlock to our small screens and currently is responsible for the latest Doctor Who? So is no stranger to Sci-fi. At the very least he should help with the writing. Finally there's J.J Abrams. Wouldn't that a great story that the director of the latest Star Trek movies would also be responsible for the new Star Wars movies? Whatever happens lets just hope its not Michael Bay. We don't want over the top explosions with really close up shots so much so you can't see what's going on.
Who do you think will make a great director for the new Star Wars movies?
