imdb.com has the exclusive. JJ has officially lied to Star Trek.
If true, so what?

I heard he was contracted for 3 Trek films, so I'm a bit wary of this.

Re: Abrams Directing Star Wars

Someone changing their mind! The HORROR!!!

If I had a chance to work on Trek, I'd likely be reluctant at first... but then the inner fan in me would take over.
Wouldn't mind as much if Matthew Vaughn wasn't in the runnings to direct. He's proven himself more worthy of handing a fantasy film with no need for lens flares and beating on the camera.

An unnamed "individual with knowledge of the production" might be right, but I'll wait for people to go on the record before considering this true.

I'm only calling for a boycott if JJ doesn't say the following when it comes to directing the new Star Wars film.

"I am not making this for Star Wars fans. I am making this for movie fans."
Why? Star Wars has never had an issue selling tickets. So the marketing of the film will be very different.

Re: Abrams Directing Star Wars

THis is going to be hilarious to read all the reactions.

The oddest thing since Abrams became involved with Trek was fans, pro and con, treating him like he was new Roddenberry or new long term caretaker of the franchise. Same thing with the new actors.

These are merely a series of films. Not a new tv years. They will do a certain number of films and move on to something else. How long that will be was always the question not if it would happen.

That's it, I'm boycotting.
My only concern is the third Trek film. After spending close to a year working on Episode VII, Abrams may not want to work on another space opera in so short a time frame.
To be honest I'm not that worried about the 3rd one yet.
Let's see how STID does, both in quality and box office, first.
And of course what Abrams and Bad Robot have to say about the whole thing.

Variety has now confirmed it (which makes it true) and, yes, Harrison is Khan.

JJ Abrams is a person who not only likes to direct, but also create new things. I doubt he'll want to jump from one space opera he didn't create to another.

This move pretty much makes him an outright liar, since last month he said, "There were the very early conversations and I quickly said that because of my loyalty to Star Trek, and also just being a fan, I wouldn't even want to be involved in the next version of those things. I declined any involvement very early on. I'd rather be in the audience not knowing what was coming, rather than being involved in the minutiae of making them."

I'm not going to trust a single thing he says from now on. Harrison IS Khan.
Remember when George Lucas said there would be no Star Wars sequels, even after his death? $4,000,000,000 later he's changed his tune.

Everybody has a price.

Re: Abrams Directing Star Wars

Actually, whether true or not, this story shows all that's wrong with journalism in the era of the InterWeb. If you Google it, a bunch of sites are picking up the story now and running with it, including "The Huffington Post". The only souce they all site for the information is the story from "The Wrap". Whatever happened to doing real journalism and confirming stories before running with them?

But if it is true, more power to him. He left "Star Trek" in great shape. It will survive. It's no different than a pro player leaving a team for a chance to go play for the one he's loved all his life.

Re: Abrams Directing Star Wars

It was always likely that each film of this new trilogy would be directed by a different person. I could see that as appealing to Abrams. He can do episode 7 and move on. But with Trek he feels like he has to oversee it now.

Much like Zack Snyder and Man of Steel, Abrams will have to work within the framework of Star Wars. Disney will likely require lens flares and "shakey-cam" be kept to a minimum if not eliminated entirely.

If the Star Wars rumor is true, he'll likely be overseeing Trek 3 from a producers chair.
