When Star Wars Episode VII was announced, you know that every major director in Hollywood got their hopes up. In fact, it caused a tremor in the Force. The saga probably inspired and influenced many filmmakers, and they suddenly have the opportunity to be part of the galaxy. It’s huge.
Conan O’Brien has taken some guesses at what Star Wars audition tapes from famous directors would look like, and they’re hilarious. He’s shown versions inspired by Wes Anderson, Tom Six (all I’m saying is Ewok centipede), and most recently, Todd Phillips from The Hangover series. If Phillips was called on to direct Episode VII, it might show what happens after Luke, Han, Chewie, R2-D2, and C-3PO have a night on the town. It isn’t pretty, but it sure is funny.
Check out the audition videos after the break.
