    As a many of you know, two directors have been recently announced to helm the director's chair of a Star Wars Spinoff (them being rumored as 'Boba Fett', 'Solo' and 'The Red Five'). Trank and Edwards have already taken both slots of the unspecified Spinoffs, now the question remains who will be the third helmer of the Star Wars Franchise? Who will Disney drop the mic towards?

    Of course, there is a vast library of phenomenal directors whom expressed their concern in directing a Star Wars movie, but who is really fit to take on a franchise as colossal as that of Star Wars? Perhaps Neill Blomkap? Edgar Wright? Alfonso Cuaron?

    Please post up any propositions of your ideal directors as to helm the third (and last?) Star Wars Spinoff. All opinions (no matter how abundant) is greatly appreciated.

    You read my mind. In fact, he's actually my top pick to direct Episode IX after the chance that J. J. Abrams, who is in the midst of directing Episode VII, will return to collaborate with Rian Johnson, the guy who will direct Episode VIII.

    I actually caught of bit of Gravity last night, and I have to say that that was probably the most creative big-budget film of last year. I wouldn't be surprised if Disney was eyeing him right now, as a matter of fact...

    Duncan Jones would be my pick. He has done movies such as Moon (2009) Source Code (2011) and is working on the Warcaft movie.

    Ooh, I forgot about Moon. I would love to see him do a Star Wars movie, now that you mention it.

    I think that this current series is going to extend beyond Episode IX. In that light I believe that the perfect director to finish the current trilogy and leave a bunch of dark dangling loose ends would be David Fincher. I doubt that will happen though.

    I wouldn't mind seeing Zach Snyder direct a SW movie, but he is busy with the DC universe.

    I actually think JJ will get the offer to direct IX though.

    I don't think the ending should have a "bunch of dark dangling loose ends ". But i don't want The Return Of The King Ending either , i just think loose ends are not the way to go.

    Care to clarify what you mean by a Return of the King ending?

    Well there's no reason why the series should be wrapped up. And from the latest stories about the story group and the long-term vision for the franchise it just makes sense that they would leave it open-ended.

    It felt like it had four endings.

    You're right -- it did. But that's because there were alot of different main characters and they wrapped-up the trilogy as an end. Episode IX doesn't have to be an ending.

    It should wrap up for those characters and a new saga should be started with all new characters, maybe even all new places.

    WHY should the story wrap-up for a bunch of young people? I don't get why it's okay for Marvel and DC to continue their saga through all these "phases" yet for some reason SW has to end at IX. It doesn't. Moreover, it won't. And yes, you're right in that we'll see new characters too.

    I think the after nine any kind of new trilogy should have nothing to do with previous Star Wars films other than space and the force ect.

    What about an adaptation of Dark Horses' Star Wars Legacy Comic Adaptation with Cade (Skywalker?) starring as the protagonist of the trilogy?

    I think use could use some of plot and characters but with new names "yeah i know Korriban thing". I think you could take Cade Skywalker "i know his thing is being a blood relative to Luke" replace his back story with a different Jedi bloodline and last name, i don't know. I just think for the intellectual property's own good you need to get away for the movies 1-9 and get a really fresh start, a'lot of people may not like it but its what i think needs to happen.

    Totally agree on changing the entire 'Skywalker' bloodline and evade any cliche backstory to the essence of a character.

    Doug Liman. He has a bunch of duds I know, but he directed The Bourne Identity and recently Edge of Tomorrow, which was awesome.

    Quentin Tarantino. I would just love to see what he could come up with, and a stand alone would be perfect. Think about it. What did the PT lack that the OT had? Besides Han Solo? Dialogue. And Tarantino does dialogue better than anyone IMHO. He also knows how to direct action. The special effects would be new for him but I'm sure he could get the right people to make it happen. I definitely remember him saying what a huge influence Star Wars had on him ( like every other director born before the 90's) and I know it would be unlike any Star Wars film before or after!
