Jj Abrams directing star warshttp://www.thewrap.com/movies/article/jj-abrams-set-direct-next-star-wars-film-exclusive-74596
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.
don't have a problem with him, thought super 8 pretty much blew after the train wreck, liked MI3 a lot, liked what he did for star trek. Seems like a nice safe pick for Disney. With a good writer, I think he'll do well. Affleck would have been the bomb though.
