Steven Spielberg: I Will Not Direct A Star Wars Movie!


Steven Spielberg won't be going to galaxy far, far away.

After the announcement of a seventh "Star Wars" film in 2015, speculation has run rampant about who might direct the massive project – with many high profile names being thrown around – but Spielberg won't be in the running.

Access Hollywood caught up with the director on Thursday night at the premiere of his latest film, "Lincoln," where we asked the longtime friend and collaborator of George Lucas about the possibility of directing the upcoming "Episode 7."

"No! No!" Steven told Access.

According to the Hollywood icon, lightsabers, stormtroopers and Wookies will be somebody else's responsibility.

"It's not my genre," the director explained. "It's my best friend George's genre."
