J.J. Abrams WILL Direct Star Wars Episode VII
— Posted by The "Superior" Anthony
I say this with a heavy heart but we’re getting word that J.J. Abrams has officially signed a binding contract and is now legally obligated to direct the announced Star Wars Episode VII for Disney/Lucas Film.
So Abrams will be directing and the internet will be set afire by his non-announcements regarding the film between now and 2015. I don’t like J.J. Abrams. I DONT. That said, I think he’s a really talented director, and I really do belive that he’ll be able to direct an enjoyable Star Wars film. I’m excited to see what he comes up with I just am not at all excited about his preferred “keep it a secret” approach to marketing. Did I mention that they gave him the keys to the thing that i’d like least to be kept a secret? It is sort of a match made in heaven and hell at the same time.
