CASTING CREW: a galaxy far, far away

Gosh, I forgot how much doing these posts are!  Sure, I’m called out on my occasional blasphemy for my remake or casting choices, but here’s a behind-the-scenes Hollywood type flick I’m giving the Casting Crew treatment to.  Behind the scenes of the filming of Star Wars, from the butting heads of young director George Lucas and cinematographer Gilbert Taylor, to the no-nonsense attitude of a 19-year-old Carrie Fisher, it could make an interesting ’70s period piece…

    I’ve always thought a movie focusing on George Lucas’ trials and tribulations of getting the first SW movie made had a lot of potential and could be brilliant. I love your casting, although I remember when I had to come up with a dream cast for this for a small film school project, I cast Jay Baruchel as GL (I know, but look at Eisenberg before he did SN) and coincidentally I cast Emma Stone, but in a different role, Marcia Lucas. His then wife and temporary editor of Scorsese’s New York, New York (she thought Lucas should have been making films like Scorsese. I wouldn’t actually have the main star wars actors in it, it would be like they were background extras in the distance, you see them and recognise them but no more than that. But you’re casting for Alan Ladd and Gary Kurtz is so mindblowingly perfect, it’s genius.
