Should co-directed films be included in this template?[edit]

There seems to be some to-ing and fro-ing on whether co-directed films should be included in this template. Mainly this has been down to an inconsistency, as an editor was removing Amazon Women on the Moon, but leaving The Twilight Zone. Whatever is decided, we need to be consistent. Personally, I don't see why the co-directed films shouldn't be included, as after all Landis did have a hand in directing these movies. Is there a precedent? There seems to be a lot of variatons in these director navboxes. Compare Template:Joe Dante, which includes The Twilight Zone, and Template:George Miller which doesn't. The Joe Dante template includes his TV work, but strangely doesn't include Amazon Women... --Rob Sinden (talk) 13:40, 7 November 2011 (UTC)

Looking further into this, the more I think that these should be included. For example, the Jean-Pierre Jeunet template is definitely correct in including the films he directed with Marc Caro, and the individual directors involved in Ro.Go.Pa.G. all have this film mentioned in their individual templates (Godard, Rossellini, Pasolini). Other examples exist. --Rob Sinden (talk) 16:39, 21 November 2011 (UTC)
