George Lucas: Take that stuffy neighbors!

In an attempt to build a movie making complex that would create $300 Million in jobs (a feat even the Big O couldn't accomplish) he got resistance from the area neighbors.

Soooooo.....
As a Lucasfilm spokesperson put it to The Huffington Post:
“The level of bitterness and anger expressed by the homeowners in Lucas Valley has convinced us that, even if we were to spend more time and acquire the necessary approvals, we would not be able to maintain a constructive relationship with our neighbors.”
Instead, Lucas has proposed a new project: Projects.
In a letter formally withdrawing his mega-studio plans, the filmmaker expressed his intention to sell the land to “a developer who will be interested in low-income housing since it is scarce in Marin.

I don't think that they don't want people making movies there. They just don't want LUCAS making movies there. Hasn't America suffered enough?

He should buy an island so he can do whatever he wants on it.

Lucasarts and industrial L&M are great as long as he has nothing to do with them.

He should buy an island so he can do whatever he wants on it.
And then we should strand him there with only the unedited versions of the EpIV-VI to watch.

Capitalism interfering with socialism. No, it cannot be!

Queen Jamillia: We have to keep out faith in the Republic. The day we stop believing democracy can work is the day we lose it.
Padme: Let's pray that day never comes.

You have to give it to George. He doesn't get what he wants, he's willing to blow it all to hell.

Wouldn't the democratic thing be doing what the majority of the homeowners want?

That's no studio complex... It's low income housing.

You can't build low-income housing. The permitting process, planning and zoning boards, environmental rules, etc. make the building, engineering and architectural costs so high that you can only build McMansions.

I want to come with you to the projects. There's nothing for me here now. I want to learn the ways of hip-hop and become a ****** like my father.

Obi Wan never told you what happened to your father. He just didn't know who it was.

Come on. Why don't you take a look around. You know what's about to happen, what George is up against. He could use a good developer like you,
