From 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.

"Argo" director Ben Affleck was also in contention, another individual with knowledge of the talks told TheWrap.

Ever since Disney bought Lucasfilm last year and announced it would make new "Star Wars" films, fans, members of the media and industry executives have speculated about which director would take the job. Abrams' name always came up, but he told Entertainment Weekly in November that he wasn't going to take the job.

He did say "Star Wars" was the first movie that "blew my mind" in terms of special effects. 

...

Though he has several producing jobs in front of him, Abrams had been uncommitted as a director. He will have to jump right into "Star Wars," which Disney has slated for a 2015 release. "Little Miss Sunshine" screenwriter Michael Arndt is penning the script.

 

Well, what do you think?

As I wrote in the other thread, I think it's terrible news. I don't trust Abrams at all, even though he gave us Lost.

To paraphrase Dean Yeager from Ghostbusters:
"The purpose of science fiction is to serve mankind. J.J. Abrams seems to regard science fiction as some kind of dodge... or hustle."

I didn't see that thread . But I looked for it in the Movies subforum, not the General one.

To any mod around, feel free to close this thread if you like.
