George Lucas Bringing The Dead Back To The Big Screen
Jay Cochran - December 06, 2010

Daily Mail recently spoke with BBC actor Mel Smith about different shows and movies he has done and he mentioned George Lucas about his teaching ways. Lucas helped Smith in directing "Radioland Murders" and the movie was not successful.

‘The film was a disaster,’ says Smith. ‘George doesn’t understand comedy, so the movie flopped. At least it taught me how to use CGI. George is obsessed with it and used too much in the last two Star Wars films — which I thought were ghastly.

Smith also mentions about how Lucas is looking to bring the dead back to the screen.

‘He’s been buying up the film rights to dead movie stars in the hope of using computer trickery to put them all together in a movie, so you’d have Orson Welles and Barbara Stanwyck appear alongside today’s stars.’ Whether Lucas’ attempt to superimpose the golden-era stars on to today’s screens is doomed to failure or not, Smith will be too busy to be part of it.
