If the Star Wars rumor is true, he'll likely be overseeing Trek 3 from a producers chair.
Which was always a possibility anyway, Star Wars or not.

Re: Abrams Directing Star Wars

This should be a good fit for Abrams. Good for him.

It does make a different director for the next Trek movie a likelihood; OTOH, perhaps Paramount will be willing to wait their turn. They waited four years for Into Darkness.

My point is I think he would prefer that.

He will be the only person to be able to say he directed a Star Trek and Star Wars film. He will continue to only produce Trek and only direct one Star Wars. Than be able to move on to his own projects. Instead of always being asked about if he will direct the next Trek film.

Re: Abrams Directing Star Wars

Cant say I'd be sorry to see him go. I loved Alias but I’ve been under whelmed by everything he’s done since the last trek film included though he did do a good job of getting a wider audience interested in Trek than had been in years. I suppose he’s a sensible choice for the new Star Wars, his trek work was clearly very influenced by Star Wars.

Re: Abrams Directing Star Wars

I like this news. It's exciting.

Abrams is a much better director than Orci and Kurtzman are writers, so I'm glad to see him attached to a neat sci-fi project that those two aren't involved with. And ST09 had a very Star Wars-type energy already, so he's shown he can get the vibe right.

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.

That's it, I'm boycotting.
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."

Since he's an outspoken fan of Star Wars and NOT a fan of Star Trek, I highly doubt he'll say anything as condescending towards his fan favorite franchise.

John sounds like Khan. Case closed indeed.

Uh, sorry...no. Not today. Not ever.

JJ has officially lied to Star Trek.
I'm trying to give a fuck.

Well, not actually.

BTW, what would make it an "official" lie to Star Trek? Would he have to say it to Star Trek's face in the presence of witnesses and a notary?

I feel happy for JJ and thinks he will do a good job. I am a marginal Star Wars fan but I bet their core fan base is happy. I do have concerns about the 3rd film.

Re: Abrams Directing Star Wars

(Insert comments by Abrams about everything on Lost having a scientific, non-supernatural explanation)

(Insert rebuttal by Lost fans saying he never REALLY said that)

(Insert a bunch of who cares comments)

Now that we finished that....the obvious choice to direct the next film is Shatner. Remember ST V failed only because of budget problems and Shatner not getting his damn rock monsters!

Get Brad Bird for the third film. Problem solved.

Re: Abrams Directing Star Wars

Abrams went off and did other projects for several years before returning to Star Trek. If Star Wars is 2015, then Star Trek is 2017. No problem.
