Disney might already be in the pre-production phase of the third Star Wars trilogy but a report from Vulture says those aren’t the only Star Wars movies Disney has in the works.

“It will be an as-yet-untitled Jedi epic loosely based on Akira Kurosawa’s 1954 classic Seven Samurai, with the ronin and katana being replaced by the Force-wielding knights and their iconic lightsabers. (Go ahead, say it — you know you want to: “ … an elegant weapon, for a more civilized age.” Felt good, didn’t it?)”

300 and Watchmen Director Zach Snyder said he was “not interested” in directing a Star Wars movie back in November: “I just think doing [episodes] seven, eight and nine is just a slippery slope.”

Well, turns out that’s TECHNICALLY true; while Snyder will not be directing episode VII, VIII or IX, Vulture and others report he is working on that aforementioned Star Wars related project. Next Movie calls him a “liar, liar, pants on fire.”

“Snyder was just very carefully bullsh*tting the world, because while he's technically not working on the new trilogy, he is actually doing a new ‘Star Wars’ film for Disney.  Note to Zack: Being dishonest is the first step towards the dark side.”

It’s not really known when the rumored film he’s working on will take place within the franchise’s storyline, but Collider speculates it will take place after episode VI but at the same time as the upcoming trilogy.

“What I find curious about this adaptation is that it takes place after Episode VI, but at the end of that movie ... Presumably, the new trilogy has to have enough distance from Return of the Jedi so that at least six new Jedi can populate the galaxy, and then you can have a pretender Jedi join them.”

With the plan Disney has to release a new film every 2-3 years, Cinema Blend says this sort of film is pretty much the only way Disney will be able to make that happen....

“...this kind of parallel movie-- potentially made on a smaller budget than you usually expect for Star Wars-- could help make that possible.”

Snyder is currently working on the next addition to the Superman franchise “Man of Steel” set for release this spring.
