You may have seen a news article on our site from a couple days ago (click here to read it) with a rumored list of directors for the forthcoming Star Wars trilogy. Sadly we found out at least one of three that might have been apparently up for the job has no intention of touching his longtime friend’s work.

Steven Spielberg 01 Steven Spielberg Says No to STAR WARSIn an interview with Access Holloywood Steven Spielberg had this to say on the subject:

No! No!  It’s not my genre.  It’s my best friend George’s genre.

So there you have it guys, that’s one name you can certainly cross off the fantasy list.  I honestly felt like the director would have made an excellent fit considering his history with the science fiction genre.  But he does make a solid point since he hasn’t really dabbled in the type of Sci-Fi / Fantasy usually associated with the Star Wars universe.

But what do you guys think of this?  Do you respect his decision or do you think he’s making a gigantic mistake?  Now that he’s out of the running who would like to see direct the movie?  Sound off with your thoughts and opinions in the comments section below.

Star Wars: Episode VII is still targeting a 2015 release.

    Spielberg hasn’t made a really good movie in years. Neither has Lucas. Spielberg ruined Indiana Jones and he’d probably do the same to Star Wars. Personally I am glad he didn’t take the job.

    yeah i agree, aliens should never be in a Indiana Jones movie. and what should the next 3 movies in SW be about anyway, the story is compleated IMO

    Fine with me. I’m not really sure who should direct the next installments, should be a young up and coming director in the veign of Nolan or Abrams. But not necessarily them, they have enough on their plate as it is.

    unfortunately? i think you meant fortunately. Spielberg is was past his directing prime and has sunk down to lucas-type levels by destroying all the films that made him great.
