Directing a Star Wars film would be too much for David Fincher, according to the director himself he revealed in a podcast with Empire (no relation to the Galactic Empire). He previously met with Kathleen Kennedy, head of LucasFilm.

"I can't imagine the kind of intestinal fortitude one has to have following up the success of the last two or three," Fincher told the podcast. "That's a whole other level. One is that you have to endure the withering abuse of Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher, and the other is you have to live up to a billion or a billion-five, and that becomes its own kind of pressure."

Ultimately, Fincher didn't want to dedicate the time necessary to do the film.

"You'd have to really clear your head. You'd have to really make sure this is something that you wanted to do," Fincher said. "Either way, it's two years of your life, 14 hours a day, seven days a week. There's no getting around it."

The job also allows no wiggle room, either.
