He maybe be one of the greatest directors on the planet, but filmmaker Ridley Scott has revealed that Disney will never allow him to helm a brand new Star Wars movie.
In an interview in Vulture, the 80-year-old director said that Disney would be too restrictive in his creative freedom for him to want to take a Star Wars movie on.
“I think they like to be in control, and I like to be in control myself. When you get a guy who’s done a low-budget movie and you suddenly give him $180 million, it makes no sense whatsoever,” noted Scott.
The Alien: Covenant director went on to say that the reshoots these movies are put through because of inexperienced directors are very expensive.
Meanwhile, following the success of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, current franchise director Rian Johnson has been confirmed to head up a brand new trilogy.
The news was confirmed by Disney and Lucasfilm on November 9.
