The mystery behind director Zack Snyder's reported involvment in a new "Star Wars" project is taking on a Sith-like secrecy!
Vulture first reported that the "300" and "Watchmen" director was developing a new "Star Wars" movie that was loosely based on Akira Kurosawa's 1954 classic "Seven Samurai" (a favorite of George Lucas), and would be a parallel, stand-alone film with the upcoming planned trilogy.
But then his rep told The Hollywood Reporter otherwise.
"While he is super-flattered because he is a huge fan, Zack is not involved in any way with the new 'Star Wars.' He is currently in post on his two films, 'Man of Steel' and '300: Battle of Artemisia,'" the director's rep said in a statement to THR.
