Possible directors for “Star Wars Episode VII” have ranged from Matthew Vaughn to Brad Bird to Steven Spielberg to J.J. Abrams. One name that hasn’t been brought up yet is Zack Snyder (“300”, “Man of Steel:). But, Snyder’s already saying he wouldn’t be interested.

“I don’t think I’d be interested in directing it. I’m a huge ‘Star Wars’ fanatic. I just think doing [episodes] seven, eight and nine is just a slippery slope. It’s a whole other mythological experiment I’m excited to see, but it’s a lot of effort,” Snyder told the L.A. Times.

That being said, Snyder originally turned down the new Superman film.
