Re: Abrams Directing Star Wars

New Abrams comment on the whole Wars-Trek thing

Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live on Saturday, director J.J. Abrams explained: "It's too early to even talk about it. We're very excited. The thing we're working on is finishing the 'Star Trek Into Darkness' movie which comes out in May.

"It's a little bit like being in the middle of lunch and trying to think about what's for dinner."

Although Disney - which bought the rights to the lucrative franchise from original director George Lucas last year - announced a 2015 release for the seventh 'Star Wars' film, J.J. revealed he hasn't committed to a release date.

He said: "We're in the middle of 'Star Trek' so to think about 'Star Wars' and the release date, all of that's far less of a concern than making a movie that's worth your time."

The filmmaker added that it was "incredibly surreal" to be asked to direct 'Star Wars', but insists it will not affect his work on the 'Star Trek' franchise - which he successfully rebooted in 2009.

.
Waits for someone to come along and complain about Abrams insulting Trek and it's fans by calling Trek "Only lunch", while honoring Star Wars with being Dinner

I have to wonder if Disney executives will be as patient with JJ's elongated release dates from script - to - screen as Paramount has been with Trek? I'm betting they want the film sooner not later to hit the theatres and are fairly firm on the 2015 release date despite what he says in these comments.

I assume they discussed all that with Abrams before hiring him & signing the contracts. If they had any big issues they would surely get someone else.
