SlashFilm picked up a new interview where writer/director Guillermo del Toro has commented on Star Wars Episode VII. He reveals he hasn't been asked to do it but seems open if he didn't have as many projects in development. Not counting Pacific Rim still in post-production he still has Heaven Sent, The Haunted Mansion, At The Mountains of Madness, Frankenstein, Van Helsing, Trollhunters, Jekyll And Hyde, Hellboy 3, Journey To The West/Temple of The Heavens all in different stages of development. However, like with the Hobbit and Pacific Rim if he's offered an interesting film he's willing to wait. Guillermo had recently been in the mix to direct Dawn of The Planet of The Apes before Matt Reeves landed the job. Anything is possible but if he's not in the mix already LucasFilm might have someone already in mind.
"You know, I saw it on the Internet, but I haven’t approached them, they haven’t formally approached me. I mean, I heard some rumblings, but to me it’s really — I have so many projects to discuss or think about. [For] something that is not a possibility yet, I don’t do that. You know, because I have so many things that I need to catch up with. If this becomes ever a reality, and there’s an approach to do it, I would then think about it, but — it’s like thinking if I want to date a supermodel. I don’t think about these things."
