    Not going to say 100% until I hear a LFL announcement. Like I said, remember the Zack Snyder announcement and how quickly that one got shot down? It was confirmed by Variety and many other sites as well.

    What projects has he dropped for others?

    It is well known that he was never going to direct a third Trek - he and his team will produce from now on. It was surprising thast he directed the second - a sign of just how good the story is that he changed his mind.

    WoW wasn't expecting JJ Abrams to do it after he said HE WOULDN'T but Kathleen really wanted him :

    All I can say is the Star Trek movie he did was awesome & Into Darkness even looks better , Super 8 was cool too.....If he can get the tone of Star Trek over to Star Wars then we will be in for a great Star Wars film.....One thing about Abrams he will definenately push hard for the Big 3 to come back although Bill Shatner didn't come back for his Star Trek Leonard Nimoy did so I have big hope there .

    So bottom line Abrams is a dam good director....He may not be everyones first choice but a good choice none the less .

    Wow, already 115 replies to this topic, and for good reason.

    This is the BEST NEWS I've heard since, well, since I heard they were making Episode VII!
    I've always enjoyed Abrams' work, and he's a fan, so this could be epic (for me).

    The only thing that makes me believe this might be true is they said we would get some news in January, and January is almost over. I know I watched Super 8, but I don't remember much about it, that's how forgettable it was. The fact that he was involved with Star Trek leaves a bad taste in my mouth, I just hope he gets rid of a few bad habits.

    Speaking of random people's opinions about JJ Abrams being relevant, my mom says she thinks he is nice.

    I am the ONLY not buying this yet. TheForce.net and other are acting like this is OFFICIAL news but its just a website reporting it. much like that Zack Synder rumor last week that was nothing. Well he said it was nothing.

    What's wrong with lens flares? It's a legit style. :)
