J.J. Abrahams to direct Star Wars: Episode VII
After rumors and denials of who will direct the next Star Wars movie, it looks like it will be a sci-fi genius J. J Abrahams. The Wrapp announced a couple of minutes ago the Star Trek and Super 8 director is on board. I think is an excellent decision. He is an excellent storyteller, has a passionate vision and for example, he did a terrific Star Trek reboot. I wonder if he will hire Roberto Orci & Alex Kutzman (Mission Impossible III, Star Trek, Alias) to work on the screenplay. However, let’s not celebrate yet. Reached by The Wrap, Lynne Hale, spokeswoman for Lucasfilm, declined to comment immediately. Neither CAA, which represents Abrahams, nor Bad Robot immediately responded to requests for comment.
