J.J. Abrams to direct 'Star Wars: Episode VII'
It looks like the universe far far away has found a new Jedi master. J.J. Abrams is all set to direct Star Wars: Episode VII, according to the L.A. Times. And then, suddenly, a million voices cried out in relief and aren't close to being silenced.
Abrams had previously denied interest in the project, but you just had to have faith in the force that he'd come around on it. Let's just hope he doesn't confuse his reboot projects: If Han Solo sprouts Vulcan ears or Chewie has a Scottish accent, I'm coming out with my lightsaber swinging.
