Abrams: Star Wars AND Star Trek
 
Fans upset over the news that J.J. Abrams will be directing the next Star Wars movie, worry not, he’s not leaving Star Trek behind.

It's official: J.J has ascended to the realm of Nerd God. All he has to do is resurrect Firefly and the trifecta will be complete.

In ten years time that will be the next Abrams reboot.

He will not stop until every planet, every timeline, every universe has been rebooted into glory.

Seems legit.

:lol:

That is the first "lens flare" joke I've seen in three years that isn't fucking stupid. Goes double for the ones that pop up on TrekBBS.

Episode 7 is not a reboot.

That's why it's called Episode SEVEN.

In other news, Abrams is planning to reboot himself as Patrick Dempsey.

I'm really starting to worry how prophetic that episode of Futurama was...

Quote:

Fry explains that he had learned that Star Trek is forbidden in the future; after the show became a worldwide religion, all of its fans were killed during the Star Trek Wars.
JJ Abrams might think he's the chosen one but he won't be bringing balance to the franchise(s).


Hmmm. Something beginning is. :lol:

Looks like he is going to work on everything but a Cloverfield sequal. I guess that one is dead.

O'well. I'm sure the world can do without a Cloverfield sequel.

However directing Trek and Wars could, if he plays his cards right, propel him into position of greatest director of all time, geekdom wise and I hope he pulls that off. He's a fool if he screws this opportunity up.
