Guillermo Del Toro Turned Down Star Wars

Guillermo Del Toro turned down directing one of the new Star Wars movies because he's just too darn busy Guillermo Del Toring everything else. "We got one phone call to my agent saying, 'Is Guillermo interested?'" he tells the Playlist. "And basically I have so much stuff already of my own, and I'm pursuing stuff that I'm generating already." Del Toro says he was flattered, but it was "just a phone call, it didn't go past that." Well, we know how we're spending the next few hours: imagining a Guillermo Del Toro version of the Mos Eisley Cantina. Ah, what could have been.
