Zack Snyder to Develop Stand-Alone STAR WARS Movie?

Fans of the "Star Wars" universe have been waiting on pins and needles for any updates pertaining to the new installments of our beloved franchise. Today, it looks like we may have a "Star Wars" update, but not the one we were expecting.

It's been reported that director Zack Snyder is developing a stand-alone "Star Wars" epic inspired by Akira Kurosawa's "Seven Samurai". That story follows a village of farmers that hire seven masterless samurai (ronin) to combat bandits who will return after the harvest to steal their crops. The film is known as one of the greatest and most influential films ever made and just happens to be one of George Lucas' favorites.

Before you get too excited, you should be aware that this news came from Vulture who was unable to site any direct sources as this time. There is no set date for when we can expect this stand-alone Snyder "Star Wars" movie, but it is presumed to begin production after "Star Wars: Episode VII" begins filming. There is still no director tied to that film at this time.

With his highly anticipated "Man of Steel", and now this recent "Star Wars" news, I think it's safe to say that Snyder could be in the news quite a bit these next few months.

What do you think of this news? Let us know in the comments section below!

"Man of Steel" hits AMC Theatres on June 14th 2013 and "Star Wars: Episode VII" will be released in 2015.

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.
