Now that it has been officially confirmed that JJ Abrams is directing Star Wars Episode VII, the universe is already close to exploding. However, another drop of fuel has been thrown into the fire with some really bad news: because of Star Wars, Abrams may very well leave directing duties for Star Trek 3.( collapseCollapse )
Once Abrams decided to come on board with George Lucas' mammoth franchise, fans started to worry if he could handle both that and Star Trek. According to a recent interview with Paramount Vice Chairman Rob Moore, the worrying was justified.
If he doesn't direct the third one, my vote is for either Jon Favreau or Joss Whedon.
