George Lucas to retire from blockbuster filmmaking
Wheeljack35 - January 17, 2012





With the exception of "Indiana Jones 5," that is.




“I’m retiring,” Lucas said. “I’m moving away from the business, from the company, from all this kind of stuff.”

Well, too bad for you. Lucas has heard all of the fanboys’ complaining and is sick of it. While he feels that there are “a lot more important things in the world” than bickering with angry fans, he also has no plans to return to it.

“Why would I make any more when everybody yells at you all the time and says what a terrible person you are?” he asked.

That being said, he was “careful to leave himself out a clause to make a fifth ‘Indiana Jones’ film.”

Speaking of “Jones,” Lucas is still defending the fridge-nuking scene in “Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.” Sure, the term “nuke the fridge” has become the film version of “jump the shark,” but Lucas attributes the sequence to his own naďve style of filmmaking. Plus, according to him and “a lot of scientists,” the odds of surviving a nuclear explosion in a lead-lined refrigerator are “about 50-50.”


“Once this is finished, he’s done everything he’s ever wanted to do,” Rick McCallum, who has been producing Lucas’s films for more than 20 years, tells the NYT. “He will have completed his task as a man and a filmmaker.”
