Pretty sure it was The Hidden Fortress which George Lucas was inspired by.

Itís inspired by Kurosawa AND ďStar WarsĒ. Itís based on a pitch Snyder had for SW a decade ago.

Iíll predict right now that it will be too long.

Re: Rebel Moon (D: Zack Snyder) - Netflix

He's pitching it as a big franchise. Maybe the guy should stop worrying about all that and just focus on making a good movie. Also, I stole these comments from someone on io9, but they fit my feelings perfectly:
Ugh. Of course that would be his pitch.

It’s amazing how often Snyder’s version of “mature” has more in common with a juvenile’s sense of edgy than anything actually resembling adulthood.

It’s Star Wars, but with more tits and gore.

Re: Rebel Moon (D: Zack Snyder) - Netflix

EXCLUSIVE: After signing his new overall deal with Netflix, Zack Snyder is moving fast to get that first film under the deal in front of cameras, as sources tell Deadline he has set Sofia Boutella to star in Rebel Moon. Snyder is directing the film as well as co-writing it with Shay Hatten and Kurt Johnstad, based on a story by Snyder and Johnstad. Deborah Snyder, Wesley Coller and Snyder will produce for The Stone Quarry along with Eric Newman for Grand Electric.

Following the success of his first film with the streamer, Army of the Dead, Zack and Deborah Snyder’s The Stone Quarry signed a first-look deal with the studio and soon after named Rebel Moon as Snyder’s next big feature. The 300 director has been meeting with talent for months for the lead role and recently cut it down to a small group of actresses, which included Boutella, to test for the part. Insiders say Boutella wowed Snyder and a decision came fast to make her the lead.

The film is set in a peaceful colony on the edge of the galaxy that finds itself threatened by the armies of the tyrannical Regent Balisarius. They dispatch a young woman with a mysterious past to seek out warriors from neighboring planets to help them take a stand the Tyrant.

Re: Rebel Moon (D: Zack Snyder) - Netflix

Charlie Hunnam, Djimon Hounsou, Bae Doona and Ray Fisher have boarded the starship to Rebel Moon, the epic sci-fi fantasy that Zack Snyder is directing for Netflix.

Jena Malone, Staz Nair, E. Duffy, Charlotte Maggi, and Sky Yang have also signed on for parts in the feature that is slated to begin shooting in April.

Sofia Boutella is leading the ensemble in the story of a peaceful colony on the edge of the galaxy that is threatened by the armies of a tyrannical regent named Belisarius. Desperate, the colonists dispatch a young woman with a mysterious past to seek out warriors from neighboring planets to help them make a stand.

Character details are about as easy to find as an honest galactic mercenary, but sources say Hounsou is playing a character named General Titus (good/bad guy status unknown), Bae is a nemesis who is proficient with a sword, while Fisher is a resistance fighter named Blood Axe.

Snyder co-wrote the script with Army of the Dead co-screenwriter Shay Hatten and Kurt Johnstad, who co-wrote 300, Snyder’s adaptation the Frank Miller comic. Snyder and Johnstad are receiving story-by credit.

Snyder is also producing with producing partner and wife, Deborah Snyder, and Wesley Coller via the trio’s The Stone Quarry production banner. Eric Newman of Grand Electric is also producing.

Exec producing are Bergen Swanson, Sarah Bowen of Grand Electric, Hatten and Johnstad.

Moon has a rather long production shoot — from April to November — and that is due to the project ambitiously being a two-part movie.

I'm actually interested in this! I think Snyder does his best work (for good or ill) when he does his non-IP work (with the exception of Dawn of the Dead). My only trepidation is how much he might inject Randian philosophy into this film.

Seven Samurai

Although the most apropos would be Battle Beyond the Stars

Re: Rebel Moon (D: Zack Snyder) - Netflix

Rupert Friend and Stuart Martin have joined the high-voltage cast of Rebel Moon, the epic sci-fi fantasy feature that Zack Snyder is directing for Netflix.

Sofia Boutella is leading the ensemble that includes Charlie Hunnam, Djimon Hounsou, Doona Bae and Ray Fisher, among others.

The story tells of a peaceful colony on the edge of the galaxy that is threatened by the armies of a tyrannical regent named Belisarius. Desperate, the colonists dispatch a young woman (Boutella) with a mysterious past to seek out warriors from neighboring planets to help them make a stand.

Friend is the story’s lead antagonist, a man who leads the armies and will square off against Boutella.

Martin’s character details are unknown but, he is also said to be villainous, per a source. Production is scheduled to begin in April and last until November.

Re: Rebel Moon (D: Zack Snyder) - Netflix

So... is this basically something Snyder wanted to make for Disney's Star Wars universe that got rejected so he's doing it through Netflix?
