Star Wars Director Auditions

Unless you've been under a rock for the past week, you should know by now that Disney bought Lucasfilm, and the House of Mouse is already working on Star Wars: Episode VII, slated for release sometime in 2015. We've already heard the start of a new trilogy might be an original story as opposed to being based on existing novels or comics, and we've made a list of our ten choices to direct the film since George Lucas is retiring. Now some directors are throwing their own names into the ring with audition tapes to prove they're good for Star Wars. Kevin Smith, Woody Allen and Michael Moore all want in this time. Watch below!

Here are the director audition tapes for Star Wars: Episode VII as imagined by Conan:

Honestly, though his style doesn't lend itself to Star Wars at all, Kevin Smith is one of the most passionate and outspoken Star Wars fans out there. I wouldn't want him to direct (and I don't think he would either), but it's not an unreasonable though. Woody Allen's relationship to Star Wars, other than maybe being a fan, is that his 1977 film Annie Hall beat out Lucas' original sci-fi film for Best Picture. If anything, these amusing videos just remind me of the hilarious "lost auditions" that "Saturday Night Live" made featuring Kevin Spacey doing some killer impressions of Jack Lemmon, Walter Matthau and Christopher Walken.

    They need to give this to an up and coming director whom the fans love that maybe has one or two films on his resume. I want someone who's career is going to either be made or broken by this film so they're sitting up at 4 AM making it perfect for fear of directing commercials for the rest of their life if they fuck it up.

    I wonder if James Cameron would be a good choice?

    The Michael Moore one was fantastic. Red State proves that Kevin Smith can step outside of his comfort zone, but I still don't want him anywhere near the director's chair, huge Star Wars fan or not. Hire him as a consultant, maybe. I hope Conan makes more of these.

    After watching Star Trek I would really like J.J. Abrams' take on this new trilogy. But I at the same time would love someone like Christopher Nolan because of experience in cinematography.
