George Lucas to step away from Lucasfilm, go back to hobby movies

by on May.30, 2012, under Movies

It seems that George Lucas is finally ready to give it up and go back to making films like he used to, like he’s been saying for years.

In an upcoming issue of British magazine Empire, TheForce.net reports that in an interview Lucas said, “I’m moving away from the company, I’m moving away from all my businesses, I’m finishing all my obligations and I’m going to retire to my garage with my saw and hammer and build hobby movies. I’ve always wanted to make movies that were more experimental in nature, and not have to worry about them showing in movie theatres.”

Still, we don’t know if he will really follow through this time. But at least there is hope that there won’t be any further revised versions of Star Wars

Lucas says “OK, no studio” to rich neighbors…plans low-income housing instead

by on May.14, 2012, under General News

Looks like ol’ George has a sense of humor about some things…after trying to build a state of the art movie studio on land he owns in Marin County, CA near San Francisco, for the last 25 years but being blocked by his rich neighbors that don’t want a studio near them, George Lucas put up his hands as if to give up and say, “Have it your way.” But since the local homeowners association seem to have no problem with residential subdivisions, Lucas has a new plan – to create lots of affordable housing for either low-income families or seniors living on small, fixed incomes. And he’s accelerating the process by providing all the survey information done for the studio plan.

It remains to be seen if the homeowners association tries to come up with an objection to the new plan that doesn’t make them look bad.
