Likely means he's done with Trek.
He's finished ruining Star Trek so he can now move on to Star Wars and make the prequels look like masterpieces.
Setting the bar that low, he should be able to find time to ruin Star Trek some more at the same time.

Hell, Abram's movie was arguably better than Generations, Nemesis, TMP, and The Search For Spock as well, not to mention much of Voyager and Enterprise.
I wouldn't even say it's arguable.

He couldn't drag Trek lower than The Final Frontier and Insurrection, both nearly killing the franchise.

He did a good job with Mission: Impossible, too, so I bet he could make a fun STAR WARS movie, assuming this isn't just another crazy internet rumor.

(Yeah, I know. So much for "backing away.")

(Sigh. So much for backing away.)
Just for clarification, I wasn't commenting on the quality of Star Trek 2009 just the fact that other Trek projects have come far closer to "ruining" the franchise.

Re: Abrams turns Star Wars because of his "loyalty" to Trek

Even if JJ has moved on to a better-paying customer who drives a fancier car and pours a better brand of champagne, I'm sure Star Trek will continue to be lucrative enough that Paramount will continue the movie franchise with a different director.

Both Star Trek and Star Wars have survived the worst that can be thrown at them (Star Wars in particular, yeesh) so there's no need to fret about either. They're touch sumbitches.

Can't blame the guy for wanting to move on to bigger and better things.

Re: Abrams turns Star Wars because of his "loyalty" to Trek

A ton of other sites are reporting it now, but it all seems to be coming from the same initial report, so I'm still not confident about this...

Re: Abrams turns Star Wars because of his "loyalty" to Trek

I'm optimistic, I enjoyed the 2009 reboot for the energy it brought back to the franchise, but it does seem clear he would be more suited to Star Wars.

I just hope the third Star Trek movie doesn't suffer from the X-Men syndrome with a different director.

Re: Abrams turns Star Wars because of his "loyalty" to Trek

Star Trek has survived many different directors. Frankly, it's amazing that Star Trek still exists at all. I'm sure everything will work itself out. At least now Hollywood has an idea of what a new, successful Trek franchise can look like.

Trek survived Shatner directing, it can survive anything...

I just hope that Paramount doesn't cut the budget for Trek 3 in response.

Probably all depends on who they'd get to replace Abrams.

Assuming STID makes a good profit and since Bad Robot and Abrams will still be involved in some way, why would they?

I just hope we won't have to wait another 4 years for it.

Considering Disney apparently wants to do a film every 2-3 years, I don't think they're going to let any director wait four years to do a sequel.

Disney and Lucasfilm still haven't confirmed this yet so it's still wait and see. I've been of a fan of JJ since Alias. I loved Lost and thought he saved the Star Trek franchise with the last film. He's got definite flaws as a filmmaker and writer but I think he's a good choice for this.
