In a new article in the Toronto Sun, Seth Rogen talks about his meeting with Steven Spielberg and George Lucas, and how the Star Wars creator/filmmaker lectured him for 25 minutes about how the world is going to end in 2012.
Here is the excerpt:
“George Lucas sits down and seriously proceeds to talk for around 25 minutes about how he thinks the world is gonna end in the year 2012, like, for real. He thinks it. He’s going on about the tectonic plates and all the time Spielberg is, like, rolling his eyes, like, ’My nerdy friend won’t shut up, I’m sorry… I first thought he (Lucas) was joking… and then I totally realized he was serious and then I started thinking, ’If you’re George Lucas and you actually think the world is gonna end in a year, there’s no way you haven’t built a spaceship for yourself… So I asked him… ’Can I have a seat on it?’ He claimed he didn’t have a spaceship, but there’s no doubt there’s a Millennium Falcon in a garage somewhere with a pilot just waiting to go… It’s gonna be him and Steven Spielberg and I’ll be blown up like the rest of us.”
Funny. I’m seriously curious as to what precautions Lucas has taken “just in case”. Could he have build a secret underground safety shelter?
