Considered Ben Affleck to direct Star Wars?!?!

Before nabbing JJ Abrams to direct the new Star Wars, they were supposedly close to asking Ben Affleck?!?!? Really?!?!?!?

I get that he won an award... for directing one movie (I know he's done two other feature-length films, but, geez!).

Worrisome to me as a Star Wars fan...

It just seemed completely crazy to me! To hand over this big a task to someone who has only directed 3 films -- and not nearly the scale, scope or genre of Star Wars. Very odd to me!

I still wish they hadn't acquired it..More reason NOT to do more hand-drawn animation.
