Is Zack Snyder Doing A Star Wars Seven Samurai Movie.

In news which pretty much surprised the entire geek orientated Internet community it appears film director Zack Snyder may be getting to ready to helm a spin-off Star Wars movie, based upon Akira Kurosawa’s classic Seven Samurai.

Of course like all good Internet rumours Snyder has since denied the claim which was posted by Vulture yesterday. The article alleged that the movie would be a stand alone effort, separate from the future next three episodes of the franchise, and be based upon the 1954 movie where the Samurai would be replaced by Jedi Knights.

It’s common knowledge that George Lucas has been a life-long fan of Seven Samurai, so this story does have a shred of legitimacy even though Snyder is denying the news…for now.
