J.J. Abrams to Direct Star Wars: Episode VII!

Shocking news everyone.  J.J. Abrams, the co-founder of Bad Robot and the man that is responsible for jump starting the Star Trek franchise, is not taking the director’s chair for its rival space epic, Star Wars.  Earlier, Abrams denied reports and actually stated that he declined the job, but today it was announced that he will indeed take the role as director of Star Wars Episode VII.  WOW.  Honestly, I love the hire, but am somewhat confused considering he’s now involved in both Star Wars and Star Trek, which has to be somewhat confusing/distracting/load on his plate.  I trust his story and artistic direction, so for the film itself, I’m very excited to see where he takes the next chapter of Star Wars.  Link to Story via Collider.
