So many people are excited about the new Star Wars trilogy. Geek auteurs are excited. Boys and girls across America are excited. Harrison Ford is not entirely anti-excited. One person, however, is definitely not invested in the latest extension of George Lucas’ star-hopping franchise. At last night’s Britannia Awards at the Beverly Hilton hotel, EW asked honoree Quentin Tarantino if he was interested in the quickly-developing sequel trilogy. “I could so care less,” he responded. So he’s not fan?
“No, sorry. Especially if Disney’s going to do it. I’m not interested in the Simon West version of Star Wars.” Two conclusions to draw from this statement. First: Tarantino is probably not planning to sell his characters to Disney anytime soon. Second: He is not a fan of Con Air.
