MTV got a chance to speak with Ben Affleck and asked him what he would do with the film if he was in charge. Read more after the break:
"I'd be too busy worrying about how the action figures would look for each character to direct the actual movie. I'd be like, 'Oh, we'll just reshoot the movie with the action figures.' It's very exciting that they're going to make more. There might be purists who are opposed to it, but I think it's a very cool thing and I'm excited to go see the movie."Source: mtv.com
Affleck remained diplomatic when asked about rumored candidate and friend J.J. Abrams, as well as who he wants in the director's chair.
"J.J. would kill it, he would crush it, but he would be great at anything. There are a lot of good directors out there. Naturally I would be inclined to get somebody who's great at telling stories. You're never going to be able to recapture the story that was the initial three, because it's so legendary and iconic. I don't know, I'm glad I don't have that job. It's a tough decision to make. That's the one that whoever it is [directing], when it gets made, I'm going to be that dad, calling in favors. 'Hey, it's Ben. Can me and my kid come to the premiere? Swing by, by any chance?' I know that my life is going to turn into that soon."
