    (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.

    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.

    Isn't it a pretty big assumption that Trek 3 and Star Wars 8 won't be the same film?

    After crying about Trek 2009 for 3 years Robert Meyer Burnett is now on twitter crying that Abrams is crapping on 'Into Darkness' by having this leak.

    Unreal.

    Its very likely he is going to be asked about SW when doing promotion for the new ST movie soon. Maybe more than the new movie itself.

    Given ST09 was basically Star Wars done with Trek characters, he'd be an appropriate choice for a new Star Wars. At least Star Wars is honest about what it is, flashy action scenes without much character or plot material.

    If Magnum PI can visit Murder She Wrote, why not a Trek/Wars crossover? Saves time and money.

    When the OT and PT were released, the films came out every three years. If STXIII were to come out in 2017, then how could SWVIII come out in 2018?!? Think of the children!!!

    Maybe Abrams will only do one SW.

    Free Enterprise is a funny movie. His special features have been passable. The rest? Best to ignore it.

    Hell, I hated celebrating my 40th.

    This. It'll likely get more people to buy tickets. Checking out Abrams directing skills was the only reason I watched Mission: Impossible III on DVD.
