We Could Have Had It All: Joss Whedon Wanted to Direct Star Wars: Episode VII

“I’m as angry as you should be. … When I heard that I was like, ‘I wonder … no, I really can’t do that. Oh, I already have a job.’ I wouldn’t clear the Avengers. I’m having so much fun with that sequel right now, just with the script, that I couldn’t imagine not doing it.”Joss Whedon on not being able to direct Star Wars: Episode VII because of the Avengers sequel. So J.J. Abrams and Guillermo del Toro were offered the movie but said no, and Whedon wanted to do it but can’t. Disney’s having worse luck than Jek Porkins during the Battle of Yavin.

    Well lets keep our fingers crossed for Episodes VIII and IX.

  • Ividia Kt

    We are willing to wait until Joss becomes available.

  • Amy W

    Maybe it will take so long to find a director that he WILL be done with Avengers 2 by the time they’re ready! …or we just wait for Eps VIII and IX, whatever.

  • Laura Truxillo

    Nah, I’ll breathe a sigh of relief for this one. Bad things happen when directors stretch themselves too thin, and then you wind up with two (or more) movies that are echoes of how much better they COULD have been instead of one really really good one.

    I notice Brad Bird is still on the table~

    Quick! Someone clone Joss Whedon :P

  • Susan Wheatley

    Could he at least do some consulting for the film??

  • Travis Fischer

    Put Episode VII on !@#$ING HOLD!

  • Life Lessons

    Postpone the frakkin movie and let Whedon direct it after he finishes with Avengers. Or let Snyder do it. Or Cameron. :) Or Bigelow!
