GEORGE LUCAS WORKING ON ROM-COM
HOLLYWOOD – George Lucas revealed today the nature of his long-awaited new project: a rom-com called Button Pants.
THX 1138, American Graffiti and Star Wars director George Lucas has a new project. And he came over to the Studio Exec bungalow to talk EXCLUSIVELY about the idea:
It’s completely different from what I’ve done in the past. Frankly, I want to get away from big budget fantasy and sci-fi and go back to my roots as an experimental arty film director. I want to make low budget personal films. Small films. You dig, SE?
Lay it on me daddio!
Groovy. Well, I call it Button Pants.
I like it already.
It’s about this guy who wants to buy a pair of button pants. But he lives in this small town where the only pant shop sells you know trousers with zippers. So he goes on this road journey to find pants with buttons.
What’s the title again?
It sounds fantastic.
Thanks, man. He meets this girl and she’s trying to find a dress with like hooks instead of zippers or buttons.
There’s a theme emerging.
I knew you’d understand. So they team up together and one night he confesses a dreadful secret.
You see his mother never knew a man and he was conceived via the Midichlorians. There’s a real chance that he could be the one who will bring balance to the Force. He complains a bit about sand and then the two are kidnapped and taken to the Death Star.
Wait. What the fuck? What happened to the button pants?
I’ll get back to it. Luckily, on the Death Star, they team up with an old star pirate called San Holo and his large Mookie Smokkacigaretta.
Fuck off, George.
Together, they… hey ow.
Button Pants will be released in 2020 by Disney.
