MOVIES: J.J. Abrams WILL direct Star Wars


This I didn’t expect, but sometimes you have to remember that those who protest the loudest are probably hiding the truth.  According to Variety, director J.J. Abrams WILL be directing the next Star Wars movie for Disney.

According to the very short report, Disney is closing the deal with Abrams to direct the seventh Star Wars film following his work on Star Trek: Into Darkness.  That is certainly a coupe  coup for Disney and a blow to Paramount if they can’t work something out with Abrams and Star Trek.  At the very least, this will give Abrams the chance to go lens flare crazy in the next lightsaber battle.

Go on, discuss it in the comment section, you know you want to.
