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.
Shatner didn't flush 30 years of continuity down the drain.
And yet, he didn't.
People really need to let this go.
Your DVDs and Star Trek Chronology haven't melted.
You'd think Trek fans would have a better grasp of the whole "alternate timeline" thing.
Abrams was in part criticized for making Star Trek too much like Star Wars. It does not logically follow that he will ruin Wars too (unless you think he will make it too much like Trek...?)
^That's actually a pretty good point.
I'm a big fan of Abrams so if and at this point it's still a big if, he is doing SWVII I'm thrilled. At this point the only people I would be happier about would be Whedon or Speilberg, and I'm pretty sure those two have been 100% ruled out.
While it's different people, you'd have thought The Final Frontier would've had a bigger budget based on the financial success of the prior four films. Paramount may not let another director draw up a huge budget for a follow-up that isn't done by Abrams.
So what? STAR TREK is more than just its "continuity."
Time to move on . . .
Interesting news. Not sure what to think at the moment, but part of me likes this news, while other part of me wants to know who will direct the next trek movie?
I was much happier when I realized this five or six years ago.
Why couldn't Abrams do both, hypothetically?
There's no rule that says you have to commit yourself to one franchise exclusively. Or can't alterate between series.
Star Wars, now with Lens Flares!
Creative incest. Should Peter Jackson have directed Harry Potter films? Or should George Lucas have directed The Motion Picture back then?
Directors go cross genre with franchises all the time.
