What J.J. Abrams’ ‘Star Wars’ Will Look Like: Everyone, Meet Leilicity | Hollywood.com
gosly asked: I appreciate how up-to-date you're keeping the Star Wars/J.J. news. What do you think about the idea of a J.J. Abrams Star Wars movie?
(That said, I think it will be good because he’s immensely talented. That said that said, I’d like to see him do one and then let someone else do it — and then for Disney to keep it rolling with rotating directors. Also, I feel bad for ‘Star Trek’ fans, because it’s kind of a slap in the face.)
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.
Take this with a grain of salt for now.
Nikki Finke has corroborated The Wrap’s report with a source of her own.
More details per /Film, some of which back up the female-lead notion.
Our sources have been telling us for a while now that Steven Spielberg was really pushing Kennedy to hire Abrams. The story goes that Abrams was the first filmmaker approached after Spielberg, but was very hesitant. Kennedy talked to other directors including Ben Affleck and also Matthew Vaughn who may have pitched to have Chloë Grace Moretz in the lead role. Our sources say that Spielberg was instrumental in convincing Abrams and Kennedy to make it happen.
IMPERIAL CENTER, CORUSCANT – The overwhelming military superiority of the Galactic Empire has been confirmed once again by therecent announcement by the President of the United States that his nation would not attempt to build a Death Star, despite the bellicose demands of the people of his tiny, aggressive planet. “It is doubtless that such a technological terror in the hands of so primitive a world would be used to upset the peace and sanctity of the citizens of the Galactic Empire,“ said Governor Wilhuff Tarkin of the Outer Rim Territories. “Such destructive power can only be wielded to protect and defend by so enlightened a leader as Emperor Palpatine.”
Representatives on behalf of the nation-state leader from the unimaginatively named planet refused to acknowledge the obvious cowardice of their choice, preferring instead to attribute the decision to fiscal responsibility. “The costs of construction they cited were ridiculously overestimated, though I suppose we must keep in mind that this miniscule planet does not have our massive means of production,” added Admiral Conan Motti of the Imperial Starfleet.
Emissaries of the Emperor also caution any seditious elements within the Galactic Senate not to believe Earth’s exaggerated claims of there being a weakness in the Death Star design. “Any attacks made upon such a station — should one ever be built — would be a useless gesture,” added Motti.
