Al parecer George Lucas (creador de Star Wars) planea retirarse de hacer peliculas “blockbusters”. Hace poco, Lucas le comento a TheNYTimes:
“I’m retiring. I’m moving away from the business, from the company, from all this kind of stuff.”
Rick McCallum, amigo cercano de Lucas y compañero de peliculas, hablo un poco sobre el mismo con Collider.com:
“Red Tails is the last of all the films that he ever said [he wanted to make]. He started 23 years ago on Red Tails and now he has fulfilled everything he set out to do, which no…very few filmmakers ever get an opportunity to do. He’s done everything that he actually wanted and planned to do, including more American Graffiti, including the revised version of [THX]. He got to be able to do everything that he actually wanted to do.
Now, with [Red Tails] completed, a little bit of rest, now I think he can set upon the next chapter of his life and figure out, ‘Okay, do I have a new set of films, a new kind of films that I want to do?’ And that’s what we hope and wait anxiously to hear from him on.”
También se le pregunto a Lucas sobre la posibilidad de nuevas secuelas (5,6,7) para la franquicia de Star Wars, y comento esto:
“Why would I make any more, when everybody yells at you all the time and says what a terrible person you are?”
¿Crees que Lucas se retira por completo de hacer películas así? ¿Crees que regresaría para Indiana Jones 5? ¿Crees que Star Wars tendra mas películas? Veremos…
