Lucas has plans for 'hobby movies'

George Lucas hasn't changed his mind about retiring from the movie business.

The Star Wars director has previously said that he'll only work on a fifth Indiana Jones film before he calls it a day making blockbusters.

Now he's told Empire magazine: "I'm moving away from the company, I'm moving away from all my businesses, I'm finishing all my obligations and I'm going to retire to my garage with my saw and hammer and build hobby movies.

"I've always wanted to make movies that were more experimental in nature, and not have to worry about them showing in movie theatres."

George previously spoke of ending his career at the helm of blockbusters after Hollywood bosses rejected his latest film, Red Tails, which he financed himself.

Last month it was announced that his film production company, Lucasfilm Ltd, has abandoned plans to build a sprawling studio in a rustic valley north of San Francisco, saying it has no desire to be seen as "an evil empire".

The project had aroused bitter opposition from local residents.
