David Fincher

From what we’ve heard, J.J. Abrams was always the director Kathleen Kennedy wanted to direct Star Wars Episode VII. Abrams had the ability and the insane Star Wars fandom to please executives and fans alike. However, don’t forget, he initially turned it down. History gets murky after that, with an incredible list of A-list directors who were rumored to, and reported to, have been contacted. Brad Bird, Matthew Vaughn, Jon Favreau, Guillermo del Toro and many others were mentioned in tandem with the film. Then, of course, J.J. Abrams changed his mind and the rest his story.

Probably the most interesting name mentioned in regards to Star Wars Episode VII was David Fincher. We published a rumor about Fincher meeting with Lucasfilm in November 2012 and, it turns out, that was correct. In a new interview, Fincher confirmed he met with Kennedy about the film but has a much different view of Star Wars than what she had in mind. Read the David Fincher Star Wars 7 quote below.

C-3PO Episode 7 Suit

We know that Andy Serkis‘ performance capture studio The Imaginarium is heavily involved in JJ AbramsStar Wars Episode VII, but we never considered to ask if classic characters like C-3PO would be computer animated or played by a man-in-suit.  Well, apparently when JJ Abrams first called Anthony Daniels, he asked the British actor to voice our favorite protocol droid in the new series. As you know, Daniels not only voiced the character but played the droid on screen  in a tightly created armored costume in the original trilogy, although the character was heavily CG animated in the prequels. So is C-3PO a performance capture computer animated creation in Episode 7? Find out the full story of the new C-3po Episode 7 suit, after the jump.
