I’m a big fan of J.J. Abrams. I think he does tremendous work.
Here’s the article for more information if this sort of news interests you:http://starwars.com/news/star-wars-is-being-kick-started-with-dynamite-jj-abrams-to-direct-star-wars-episode-vii.html
Phew – maybe we shall get some acting this time even if there probably be some dodgy plotline!
I hope he can write and direct it similar to the 2009 star-trek but STAR-WARS FLAVOUR
It’s pretty crazy, the first time someone has consecutively rebooted the 2 biggest sci fi franchises! I hope he does as well with Star Wars as he did with Star Trek. The 2 are quite different beasts after all.
I wish Irvin Kershner was still alive.
And a Guillermo Del Toro + Peter Jackson partnership would be a dream for me, they are my heroes.
Let’s wait and see how soulless money machine will kill StarWars once again.
This is worst day of my life
It’s a pretty predictable choice from Disney, very safe, very ‘Disney’.
Of far more interest is the fact that Disney chose the writer of ‘Little Miss Sunshine’ and ‘Toy Story 3’ to write the screenplay. It all starts at the script, and choosing Michael Arndt gives me a little more optimism.
Hopefully he will do a good job and turn me into a Star Wars fan.
