Lucas Shaw of The Wrap:
J.J. Abrams will direct the next “Star Wars” film for Disney, taking stewardship of one of Hollywood’s most iconic and lucrative film franchises, an individual with knowledge of the production told TheWrap.
Because regular people don’t confuse Star Wars and Star Trek enough already… Seriously though, if this is true (didn’t he just deny it recently?), that’s solid news.
As long has he goes easy on the lens flare this is great news! (If it is accurate. I, too, remember him denying he’d want to work on it.)
