Veteran filmmaker George Lucas says he will not helm a main stream movie as there is a lack of creative freedom in the contemporary cinema.

The 71-year-old creator of “Star Wars” will work on the projects which he finds provocative and wants to return to his kind of experimental cinema, said The Hollywood Reporter.

“You go to make a movie and all you do is get criticised, and people try to make decisions about what you’re going to do before you do it. You know, it’s not much fun. And you can’t experiment, you can’t do anything.

“You ‘have’ to do everything a certain way. I don’t like that, I never have — I started out in experimental films and I want to go back to experimental films, but of course, nobody wants to see experimental films. I will be directing movies, but not movies that will be shown anywhere,” Lucas said.
