The likes of Colin Trevorrow, Josh Trank, Phil Lord and Chris Miller have all been attached to direct Star Wars movies at one point. Benioff and Weiss were also attached to direct a Star Wars film. We’re now hearing that Lucasfilm is looking at Zack Snyder to direct a Star Wars film.

Here’s what We Got This Covered had to say about Lucasfilm being interested in hiring Zack Snyder to direct a film set in a galaxy far, far away:

Josh Trank, Colin Trevorrow, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller and Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss were all given their marching orders for a variety of reasons, but we’ve now heard from our sources – the same ones who told us Luke Sywalker was returning to Star Wars long before The Mandalorian‘s season 2 finale – that Lucasfilm are looking to hire reliable big name directors with plenty of experience helming mega budget franchise movies to steer the ship, and Zack Snyder’s name has reportedly been mentioned as a possible candidate.
