We all know J.J. Abrams got the job. But reports are that Disney and LucasFilm first offered the gig to direct “Star Wars Episode VII” to Steven Spielberg. Once he and Abrams turned it down, they offered it to Matthew Vaughn, who left “X-Men: Days of Future Past”. In his pitch he would have Chloe Moretz star as the lead. I must say I wish we could have seen this version. It’s too bad that fell through.
