George Lucas is Going to Make Movies in His Garage NowBritt Hayes |
After years of making epic movies and spending his time digitally adding creatures to his old 'Star Wars' movies, George Lucas has finally joined the rest of us in not caring anymore. Now he wants to make experimental movies in his garage.
In an interview with Empire the director of the 'Star Wars' franchise and the man who teamed with Steven Spielberg to give us 'Indiana Jones' says:
I’m moving away from the company, I’m moving away from all my businesses, I’m finishing all my obligations and I’m going to retire to my garage with my saw and hammer and build hobby movies. I’ve always wanted to make movies that were more experimental in nature, and not have to worry about them showing in movie theatres.
See, all of our complaints about his tampering with the original 'Star Wars' trilogy have finally made a difference. Or not. Lucas has never really seemed to care what his audience has to say about what he does or how he does it, so this sort of makes sense.
Everything he's saying here runs counter to the years of work he's done. Experimental films are the exact opposite of epic, expensive sci-fi. And ditching the computers in favor of actual tools? It sounds like George Lucas wants to be the Ron Swanson of movies no one will ever see.
