Director John Landis (An American Werewolf in London) is not one to stay silent when something is on his mind. Recently, Landis had some choice words for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as well as Universal’s Dark Universe, and now the director has turned his thoughts to Lucasfilm.

Talking to Collider about a wide range of topics, the director took a moment to tear into Hollywood’s tendency to stifle creative talent:

“I have many things that I’m working on, whether or not they’ll ever become real, I don’t know. You know Joe Dante and myself and a few other guys I know are in the same position. They’re not hiring people who have opinions. They think, ‘He knows what he’s doing, I’m not hiring him!’ Look at Star Wars. They keep firing guys. Phil Lord and Chris Miller, those guys are really talented. »
