while promoting Paul Schrader’s upcoming “The Card Counter” Oscar was asked about the SW movies:
“I enjoyed the challenge of those films and working with a very large group of incredible artists and actors, prop makers, set designers, and all that was really fun”
“It’s not really what I set out to do. What I set out to do was to make handmade movies, and to work with people that inspire me.. Paul [Schrader]’s movies, the things that he’s made, it’s in my DNA. I’m not alone, obviously. [For] every actor of a certain generation, those are the films that made them who they are, so that’s certainly my case. It feels like for me a personal turning point and that, as far as I’m concerned, it has nothing to do with the finished product. It’s the process of doing this.”
so he would not return to future Star Wars movies?
“Probably, but who knows. If I need another house or something.”
