Spielberg preps Lucas for his wedding night.

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.

Watch your back, Leslie Nielsen! It’s being reported that George Lucas is quietly and secretly buying the film rights to dead Hollywood stars. His goal? Awesome pornos. Something undoubtedly terrible. Actor/director Mel Smith has revealed Lucas’s nefarious plot:

“He’s been buying up the film rights to dead movie stars in the hope of using computer trickery to put them all together in a movie, so you’d have Orson Welles and Barbara Stanwyck appear alongside today’s stars.’ Whether Lucas’ attempt to superimpose the golden-era stars on to today’s screens is doomed to failure or not, Smith will be too busy to be part of it.”

This actually explains a lot. Much like when Senator Palpatine revealed himself to be the Sith Lord Darth Sidious, the shadowy mastermind behind the Hollywood Star Whackers is none other than George Lucas. Think about it. A star dies. Lucas buys their rights. Recreates them via CG for some shitty movie. Zemeckis then has to buy him a steak. He’s gone mad with power, and wants to make the absolute worst, unnecessary film of all time. Question is, why would he want to break his own record? (Daily Mail)
