J.J. Abrams to Direct Star Wars Episode 7
According to The Wrap, Star Wars Episode 7 has a director and it is J.J. Abrams. Abrams will be tasked with taking perhaps the most beloved franchise in cinematic history and returning it to it’s former glory. Abrams has already resurrected one fan favorite sci-fi property in 2009′s Star Trek and the upcoming sequel Star Trek Into Darkness. Here’s hoping he can do it again.
A few months ago word was going around that J.J. Abrams was in the running for the directors chair but he squashed the rumors in a statement to Entertainment Weekly. Well now we know that was not simply a rumor and that Abrams apparently is a liar face.
Good luck J.J. and may the force be with you.
Star Wars is slated for release in 2015.
