'Star Wars: Episode 7': Who Should Direct?

Posted: Updated:
"Star Wars: Episode VII": Who will direct?

The only thing crazier than Disney acquiring Lucasfilm for $4.05 billion in cash and stock considerations on Tuesday? That Disney plans on making three new "Star Wars" films, starting with "Star Wars: Episode VII" in 2015. That means in three years, Disney will not only release a sequel to "Marvel's The Avengers," but also the first "Star Wars" film since "Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith" in 2005. (2015 is going to be loaded for geeks; Warner Bros. is rumored to have a "Justice League" film arriving that year as well.)

Despite coming up with a treatment for the next "Star Wars" trilogy, Grand Poobah George Lucas won't direct "Episode VII"; he wants to give the franchise over to a new generation of filmmakers. So! Which filmmakers have the best chance of heading off on the Millennium Falcon (or whatever the "Episode VII" version of the Millennium Falcon is called)? HuffPost Entertainment has compiled a list of 19 possible contenders. Check them out below and add your own in the comments section.
