George Lucas is co-directing SIN CITY!?! Whaaaaaat?

Is this some unheard of kid who happens to share the same name as the man who created Star Wars?

As for QT, great news.

I think that the article just meant that Lucas wasn't part of the director's guild

Hmm, that may be. It would certainly make more sense. I cannot imagine Lucas working on a Sin City movie.

I won't turn this into a Lucas bashing/defending thread, but even as much as I know you don't like Lucas, you still wouldn't agree that he might be ill-suited to something like Sin City? I'm not attacking him, I just don't think that because someone is good at one thing doesn't mean they're good at another.

I wouldn't ask Woody Allen to direct an action movie, for example, even though I love Woody Allen. I just think Lucas would not be a good fit for something like Sin City.

George Lucas directing "Sin City" would mean a CGI Marv.

Mickey Rourke is perfect casting for a movie like Sin City.

So the film is going to be co-directed by Rodriguez, Miller and Tarantino? Oh, I gotta see this. The film will apparently consist of 3 intertwined vignettes. Does this mean that each co-director will direct a different vignette and it will then be edited together? I'm not sure how having three directors would work otherwise, logistically speaking.

I love Miller's comic, so I am really looking forward to seeing this film.

I can't imagine that's what they have in mind. Granted, if it were Rodriguez and Tarantino and another director, that would make sense. But Miller is no director...I can see why they'd want him on board (duh) and I can see what he can add as a co-director, but I couldn't see him handling a whole segment himself. Instead I imagine he'll be integral in realizing the look of the movie, along with guiding the screenplay and character acting and styles to fit the original Sin City. Where does Tarantino fit into this? Who the hell knows...nonetheless, a very interesting project...RR has some good ideas, Miller brings his knowledge and style, and maybe Tarantino can act as overseer and make sure these two turn out a quality film since, well, he's the only one of the three I think is truly a great filmmaker. Rodriguez is decent, but can be very sloppy, and Miller is...well he's never directed anything. Anyway, I'm just saying I doubt they'll split it up Four Room style.

I mean we've seen two directors work side by side many a time, so three I would imagine would be somewhat similar. Wachowski Bros, Hughes Bros, Farrely Bros, Marc Caro & Jean Pierre Jeunet. Just add one more person.

Now I've read that Tarantino will supposedly be on board as a "guest director" for one of the 3 segments.

You are probably right about Miller. I was just half thinking that maybe Miller had aspirations to direct a film and Rodriguez was giving him a opportunity to take a shot at it in exchange for Miller allowing him the rights to Sin City. Just a half assed theory of mine that probably could be a bad idea if it happened.

It's this crime comic book, it's real dark and gritty and drawn like the pictures. It's good, not great.
