Back in November, we reported that Zack Snyder wouldn’t be directing Star Wars: Episode VII.  This remains true, but Vulture is now reporting the surprising news that Snyder will be involved in the upcoming Star Wars universe with a spin-off feature.  As we previously reported, screenwriters Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg were working on scripts that could be part of the upcoming sequel trilogy or they could be spin-off features.  Episode VII is due out in 2015, and Disney CEO Bob Iger has said he wants a new Star Wars movie ever 2-3 years.

Hit the jump for more on Zack Snyder’s upcoming Star Wars film. [Update: Snyder's reps have released a statement denying this story. Read the statement after the jump]
