George Lucas: More movies, less money

A worthy read from Variety: `Lucas tilts at studio tentpoles.' From David S. Cohen's piece:

    The creator of "Star Wars," which stamped the template for the franchise-tentpole film, says many small films and Web distribution are the future.

    And in case anyone doubts he means it, Lucasfilm is getting out of the movie biz.

    "We don't want to make movies. We're about to get into television. As far as Lucasfilm is concerned, we've moved away from the feature film thing because it's too expensive and it's too risky.

    "I think the secret to the future is quantity," Lucas said.
