I'd love to see a collaboration between Michael Bay and M Night Shyamalan.

just $150 Million worth of CGI explosions and chicks in tight jeans with a surprise ending a ten-year old could predict.

straight to VHS (not even good enough for a DVD)

After "The Last Airbender" Shyamalan shouldn't even be allowed to direct traffic.

While it was, what I felt, a bad adapation I didn't think it was as terrible as the critics panned it out to be. I do agree with the sentiment though. ;)

Not David Lynch, who derailed any chance of a "Dune" franchise.

I have a crazy idea for a stunt hiring of a director, Vince Gilligan when he's done with "Breaking Bad". Look at how stylish that show is, both when it's slow and when it's fast.

Does it have to be just one director? How about hiring a team of them?

I'm surprised those 2 weren't on the list, and I'm surprised you're the first post I've seen mention them. I thought they'd be near the top of the list.

Joss Whedon can write for sure, but he's no director. The Avengers was a mess. A fun mess sure, but a mess nonetheless.

Personally I think Brad Bird is the perfect fit. His work in animation with Pixar and WB has shown his ability to create brilliant family films balancing great action with just as much heart, without falling into schmaltz territory. On top of this, we've seen from 'Ghost Protocol' that he's just as capable in live action as he is making cartoons, and his use of set-pieces is nothing short of masterful.

If they can't grab onto Bird, JJ seems a decent fit. He's no stranger to science fiction, particularly that of the 'Star' variety. I'd be happy to see him in the director's chair, just as long as he doesn't bring Damon Lindelof with him. The day they let Lindelof run wild in the Star Wars universe will be a dark day for all.

And while it would never happen, I would give my firstborn to see what Wes Anderson could make of the franchise. Bill Murray was born to play sassy Obi Wan.

I've completely fell for Bill Murray after his cameo in Zombieland.

"Disney bought it after all so why not hand the job to Mickey Mouse, but my best choice is Donald Duck..I'm sure DD is qualified to handle the job and capable to direct and create the most hilarious star wars episode of all.."

No one. Do not make another. The story is told the book closed. It would be like the rocky movies, the last is the worst, and should not have been made.

Of all those mentioned, I'd most like to see what Whedon would do with the material (which needs, at minimum, a serious reboot in the wake of the unpleasantnesss that was the three prequels). But frankly, I'd much rather see Whedon go back to working on his own material--good as "Avengers" was, I would not want to see his future career limited to clever adaptations of other people's stuff. His own is just too good.

Of those not mentioned above, I'd most like to see Alfonso Cuaron have a bash at it.

Then again, I'd be happier still if they'd just let this sleeping dog lie. The idea of "Star Wars" was always more interesting than its execution. Lucas's writing could not bear close scrutiny (Harrison Ford: "George, you can type this s__t, but you sure can't say it.") As a director he knew nothing of how to work with actors and cared less. He disdained the actors' craft, and this disdain shows on screen.

I'd say bring back Irvin Kershner, except that, as of this writing, he's been dead for two years. Pity. He directed the only installment in the franchise that was watchable from start to finish.

How about we completely nix the idea of another Star Wars and start writing the screenplay for "Callahan's Crosstime Saloon" by Spider Robinson?
01:14 AM on 11/01/2012
Every serious Star Wars fan puts "Empire" at the top,of their list . Why? Because on a fluke a director concerned with storytelling and character arcs, (and had little VFX experience), was put at the helm. The characters were designed to be compelling, the story operatic. Bring me another Irvin Kirshner please.
