George Lucas Retires From Making Blockbusters


George Lucas is retiring from making blockbusters

after complaining that Hollywood refused to fund his latest self-funded movie

because it has a black cast.

[  apparently the suits just out-and-out told him

“we have no idea how to market this ” – end quote ]


Another impetus for his retirement

appears to have been a backlash Lucas received from fans

for making changes to the Star Wars films,

including introducing extra dialogue for Darth Vader.

Lucas said:

“Why would I make any more,

when everybody yells at you all the time

and says what a terrible person you are?”

He intends to return to making experimental,

low budget art house films

of the kind he created as a student.
