Love him or hate him, John Landis is at it again. But he's not talking about how bad monster movies are these days, instead, he's decided to throw some shade towards Lucasfilm for firing directors and writers from the Star Wars movies. The monster movie aficionado is out promoting the latest 3D restoration of Michael Jackson's Thriller, which he said he had a lot of fun doing while mentioning that the estate is "just happy to exploit it and resell it." The veteran director pulls no punches, even when it comes to his family, but he left the best for Lucasfilm.

John Landis recently spoke with Collider about monsters, 3D, and other fascinating topics, but things got a little interesting when he was asked if he was working on anything new. Landis talks about the industry today not wanting anything to do with writers or directors that have their own strong opinion. »
