LUCASFILM PRODUCER RICK MCCALLUM SPEAKS LIVE-ACTION SERIES source: (www.ceskapozice.cz)


MCCALLUM QUOTES


PRODUCTION

• "The TV series is on hold, but that has nothing to do with the Czech Republic; it has to do with [the episodes being] so ambitious”

• “We have 50 hours of third-draft scripts, but the problem we have is there is a lot of digital animation; we don’t have the technology yet to be able to do them at a price that is safe for television. Since we would be financing them, it would be suicide for us to do this [now]. So we are going to wait three or four years”

• “Network television and cable television as we know it are completely imploding, so we’re not really sure that in five years’ time we can release a dramatic one-hour episode because it is all reality TV now”



PLOT

• “It takes place between episodes three and four, when Luke Skywalker was growing up as a teenager, but it has nothing to do with Luke,”

• “Basically, it is like ‘The Godfather’; it’s the Empire slowly building up its power base around the galaxy, what happens in Coruscant, which is the major capital, and it’s [about] a group of underground bosses who live there and control drugs, prostitution”



STAR WARS 3D

• “We’re doing 3D versions of all six films, one a year, starting in February of next year. We start with [episode] one and go all the way through six, totally chronological,”

• "But the first one is a somewhat of a test. “One a year, if they work. If they don’t, then there will be just one [episode converted to 3D].”

Drugs and prostitution? Talk about forging a new direction with the brand.

In addition to the Godfather, the show also sounds a little like a Dr. Mabuse film. The description makes me wonder which bounty hunters (besides the obvious one) will end up on the show.
