Yesterday I posited a theory that George Lucas may be the shadowy puppet-master pulling the strings of the mysterious Hollywood Star Whackers due to a report that the special effects maestro is buying the film rights to dead celebrities. Correction: he is not. Lucasfilm spokesman Josh Kushins told Wired.com, “The rumor is completely false.”
What do you think? Do you believe the statement, or does this thing go deeper than we imagined? As of right now, we’ll have to believe that Lucas is not reviving the stars of yesteryear on film (though it seems like something he’d do). Apologies for any implied wrongdoings and steaklust.
