George Lucas is Straight Gangster
Over the past decade, George Lucas has been trying to build a 263,701 square-foot “movie-making complex” complete with daycare and over $300 million in jobs to Marin County except his rich neighbors formed their own rebel alliance – *adjusts bow tie* – because, wait for it, it would bring too much “foot traffic” and be generally “déclassé.” So not only has George Lucas bullseyed the project with his T-16, he’s now firing a Death Star laser right at his enemies’ stuffy dicks. Via Gawker:
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.”
For those of you scratching your head because this post isn’t about giant breasts (Sorry ’bout that.), George Lucas literally just went, “Foil my plans, will you?” and started chucking poor people like goddamn rocks. Somewhere Gwyneth Paltrow just read this and immediately regretted not wearing a stronger brand of handwoven albino spider-silk vulva pashmina. I could legally zone her pelvis as a water park right now.
