J.J. Abrams Reportedly Set to Direct 'Star Wars: Episode VII'

J.J. Abrams reportedly is moving from one Star to the other. 
The Wrap is the first to report that Abrams will helm the anticipated Star Wars: Episode VII for Disney and Lucasfilm. The site says the studio went with Abrams over Ben Affleck, and the director will “have to jump right into Star Wars” in order to make the pre-determined 2015 release date. Michael Arndt (Little Miss Sunshine,  Toy Story 3) currently is hammering out the screenplay.
The insane part of the story, of course, is that Abrams helped reboot the OTHER major sci-fi franchise in our cinematic universe – Star Trek. In fact, he’s prepared to deliver Star Trek Into Darkness this summer before transitioning completely into Star Wars territory. 
Abrams has had a hand in science-fiction over the course of his career. At Bad Robot, they have been responsible for television shows like “Lost” and “Fringe,” and Abrams has produced and/or directed films like Star Trek, M:I III and Super 8.
He’s a fanboy, too. And he gets a ton of cred for rebooting Star Trek with a fresh cast and a new timeline. If Abrams is able to rescue Star Wars from the digital clutches of George Lucas’ prequel trilogy, which left such a bad taste in fans' mouths, he’ll earn a spot equal to a Roman God in the minds of film geeks everywhere.
No pressure, Mr. Abrams. Let’s see what you can do.
