George Lucas Backtracks on Apocalyptic 2012 Fantasies


Yes, George Lucas did discuss with Seth Rogen his theories that 2012 could bring about the end of the world, but according to a Lucasfilm rep, it was all in jest. In fact, so is the rep's response, which pokes fun at other Lucas rumors: "He was not serious when he talked about the end of the world in 2012 but he is an adamant believer that the world is flat, that Stonehenge was built by aliens, and that the sun revolves around the Earth. These are among the many subjects he commonly discusses at length with Elvis, who he’s going to digitally insert into Indy 5 along with a roster of famous dead actors." More bad news, Seth: If Lucas and pal Steven Spielberg do have an escape plan via spaceship in case of 2012-related emergency, you're not a part of it. “Seth Rogen is a funny guy,” said the rep, “but George and Steven are taking Chris Rock with them on the Millennium Falcon!” [Wired via Movieline]
