'Star Wars: Episode 7' - How You Can Decide Who Will DirectMike Sampson |
What if 'Star Wars: Episode 7' was directed by Martin Scorsese from a script by Tina Fey and starred James Franco? Well...it would be weird, that's for sure. But a new online 'Star Wars' sequel generator allows you to select who you want to direct, write and star in 'Star Wars: Episode 7' - heck, you can even pick a name. And based on those selections, it will simulate critic reviews and total box-office. Let' just say not a lot of people want to see James Franco in a 'Star Wars' movie.
Why wait for producers to announce who will actually direct 'Star Wars: Episode 7' when you can do it yourself?
The "Star Wars: Sequel Debacle Simulatron" is a game designed by Ben Johnson and Joe Kowalski and allows players to design their own 'Star Wars' sequel and see how the public would react to their choices. You can name the actor, director and star and adjust the tone of the film based on action, sci-fi, romance and comedy. And then the best part: you get to pick a title.
So as a test, we entered in a 'Star Wars' movie. It was titled "Twilight of the Clones" and it included Scorsese, Fey and Franco. We went heavy on action and sci-fi and...unsurprisingly it wasn't a huge hit. The film was graded "F" and was called a "long, meandering film that never gets off the ground."
We didn't have much luck playing 'Star Wars' producers but maybe you'll have more success. Give it a shot and see if you can make a 'Star Wars: Episode 7' worth watching. (Just stay away from James Franco...) Click on the link below to launch the game in a new window.
