Star Trek's J.J. Abrams Won't Be Directing Stars Wars Either Most Likely



Growing up, J. J. Abrams was a huge Star Wars fans, but not so much a fan of Star Trek.

However, with the 2009 release of the Star Trek reboot, fans of Star Trek were able to set their phasers down as the movie was a smash hit.

J.J. Abrams is back directing Star Trek Into Darkness, which has a 2013 release, will the director now take on Star Wars Episode VII slated for 2015?

HollywoodLife.com caught up with director and asked about Star Wars, with J.J. Abrams revealing that he won't be making it so, most likely.

"Look, Star Wars is one of my favorite movies of all time. I frankly feel that – I almost feel that, in a weird way, the opportunity for whomever it is to direct that movie, it comes with the burden of being that kind of iconic movie and series. I was never a big Star Trek fan growing up, so for me, working on Star Trek didn’t have any of that, you know, almost fatal sacrilege, and so, I am looking forward more then anyone to the next iterations of Star Wars, but I believe I will be going as a paying moviegoer!”
