Can "Star Wars: Episode III" be saved?: "In many ways, 'Phantom' and 'Clones' were the answer to the unasked question 'What would the director of 'Plan 9 From Outer Space' have done with a talented effects crew and a $200 million budget?' Well then, why not bring Ed Wood back from the grave to direct Episode III? Sure, it's a farfetched idea, but it's easier to swallow than 'midichlorians.'" - predictably, I vote for Stephen Soderbergh and Christopher McQuarie.
