J.J. Abrams Directing Star Wars Episode 7 After All?!

The end of the world is nigh! For J.J. Abrams the man who is famous for rebooting Star Trek is now doing Star Wars as well if what the report that came from The Wrap is to be believed, Abrams was a fan favorite pick ever since the film itself was announced but back in November he explicitly stated that he would NOT direct the next Star Wars film, fearing that it could cause major issues with his current partnership with Paramount.

I’ve never been much of a ST fan myself but I will admit the reboot in 2009 was very well done and it was actually a good sci-fi movie which is amazing in this day and age where most of them are generally low budget crap (im looking at you Skyline), do I think he’s the best pick? I honestly don’t know but I would certainly put him among the top contenders but im still disappointed that Favreau and Affleck wont be getting a chance to take a shot at it, hell if Zack Snyder could direct one that would be amazing, just don’t let him write the script or do the casting and you’re good to go.

But I have to question just how true this report is, as I said such a deal with Disney could potentially compromise his work with not only Star Trek but also with Mission Impossible, another Paramount franchise he’s been dealing with ever since the third film, so in the words of master Yoda I will conclude the article with this……

“Sense a great corporate and nerd community shit storm, I do. “
