J.J. Abrams Will Direct Star Wars

J.J.

Ever since Disney bought Lucasfilm last year and announced it would make new “Star Wars” films, fans, members of the media and industry executives have speculated about which director would take the job. Abrams’ name always came up, but he told Entertainment Weekly in November that he wasn’t going to take the job. He did say “Star Wars” was the first movie that “blew my mind” in terms of special effects. Check out the full story at TheWrap.
