With the upcoming release of David Fincher‘s Gone Girl this Friday, the director has been making the press rounds. Naturally, he was asked about Star Wars because you can ask any director about it, and he said he did have a meeting with producer Kathleen Kennedy about helming Star Wars: Episode VII. Before you get too excited, keep in mind that the producers likely cast a very wide net, and just because Fincher had a conversation about the movie, that doesn’t mean he got anywhere close to doing it.
In fact, he explained why he turned it down as well as his interesting take on A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back. Hit the jump for what he had to say.
