Star Wars, Zack Snyder

Alas, the next generation of Star Wars will be sadly lacking in the loincloth department.

There's a report out there that Zack Snyder is developing a Star Wars film, albeit one outside the realm of the three sequelish films planned by Disney, which snatched up George Lucas' Lucasfilm for $4.05 billion last year.

As if that part of the story wasn't confusing enough (apparently Disney's intending to really expand the Empire), here's the real rub: Snyder isn't going to be directing a Star Wars picture for anyone.

"While he is super flattered because he is a huge fan, Zack is not involved in any way with the new Star Wars," a rep for the filmmaker told E! News. "He is currently in post on his two films, Man of Steel and 300: Battle of Artemisia."

OK, so the near future won't be entirely without loincloths.

Meanwhile, Disney's planned Episodes VII, VIII and IX remain up for grabs in the director's-chair department and most of the headlines so far have been made by the talent that have disassociated themselves from the job, including Sndyer, Guillermo Del Toro and J.J. Abrams.
