No, Zack Snyder is not directing a samurai Star Wars movie

That story from earlier today about Watchmen director Zack Snyder doing a Seven Samurai-influenced Star Wars movie? It was just so much poo-doo. His reps tell the Hollywood Reporter that he's not working on anything Star Wars related, either part of the new trilogy or one of the spin-off movies.

Said Snyder's spokesperson:

While he is super-flattered because he is a huge fan, Zack is not involved in any way with the new Star Wars. He is currently in post on his two films, Man of Steel and 300: Battle of Artemisia.
