[Movies] Drew Struzan Approached To Do Poster For Star Wars: Episode VII Posted by Joseph Lee on 01.21.2013
Never say never...
In an interview with Fanhattan about a poster he made for Being Human season three, artist Drew Struzan commented that he's been contacted by Disney to do the poster art for the new Star Wars films.
He said: " Oh, well, never say never, [laughs] because…in fact, I got a couple calls already this week on Star Wars from Disney. Oh my god, I'm trying to be retired! You know, I spent 35 years painting Star Wars. [laughs] I painted Star Wars before most of you were born! But I guess there is always a chance. There's no intention. But I would love to have a day off every now and again, and I have to work a weekend and all through the night. If the opportunity arises, it will be a real temptation. But it's going to have to be a real temptation to get me away from my wife and my little grandkids and my family. Away from the green trees and the blue skies for a change instead of just locked in the studio. But, you know, never say never. All things are possible."
In addition to the original Star Wars posters, Struzan also provided artwork The Thing, Back to the Future, Indiana Jones, Harry Potter and more.
