Star Wars Episode VII - Drew Struzan could paint the new Star Wars movies posters
Scooped on Tuesday, January 22, 2013
He's one of the few big names in illustrated artwork from the movie business. Over four decades Drew Struzan has been painting movie posters and had his artwork associated with dozens of high profile films including all six Star Wars movies. And while he is officially retired from painting, don't count Struzan out of creating the posters for Disney's new Star Wars films.
Struzan gave the exclusive news to Fanhattan while talking about his new poster promoting the third season of Being Human. It's not a done deal by any means, but the conversation has started:
"Oh, well, never say never, [laughs] because…in fact, I got a couple calls already this week on Star Wars from Disney," Struzan told the site. "Oh my god, I’m trying to be retired! You know, I spent 35 years painting Star Wars. [laughs] I painted Star Wars before most of you were born! But I guess there is always a chance. There’s no intention. But I would love to have a day off every now and again, and I have to work a weekend and all through the night. If the opportunity arises, it will be a real temptation. But it’s going to have to be a real temptation to get me away from my wife and my little grandkids and my family. Away from the green trees and the blue skies for a change instead of just locked in the studio. But, you know, never say never. All things are possible."
