I reported a couple days ago that Gorgeous George Lucas believes in the 2012 end-of-the-world. My source was the excitable comedian Seth Rogen, and it turns out it would have been wise to take his claims with a grain of space-salt.
George “I Ruin My Own Movies” Lucas was kidding. Wired.com was able to speak with a representative of Lucasfilm who confirmed the filmmaker was “not serious.”
As evidence of this sense of humour, the spokesperson did claim:
…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.
Oh Lucas, you old kidder. Now come on, where are you hiding the real prequels? You know, the good ones?
