No big deal, just three iconic film directors hangin' out takin' selfies. Not the droids you're looking for. Move along. Except it is kind of awesome to see "Star Wars" king George Lucas, the "Godfather" himself, Francis Ford Coppola, and Opie, aka Ron Howard, in one very casual-looking photo. Maybe they just gather every so often in a director's version of Jimmy Kimmel's Handsome Men's Club. (Spielberg was probably in the bathroom.)
The "Apollo 13" director shared the photo in question when tweeting images from a recent "Weekend with Charlie Rose" conference in Aspen. Here's Ron Howard, so excited to share the moment that he misspelled George Lucas's name:
One fan joked that it was confirmation of "Willow 2," referencing the 1988 movie directed by Howard from a story by Lucas. Coppola appears to be gesturing for some reason, maybe he's trying to direct Howard.
Howard also had a fanboy moment when Usher performed during the conference:
That's cool too, but it would've been nice to see and hear more from the directors. If only they had taped whatever conversation they had before and after taking the photo.
