Part of me wishes it went to a more of an outsider director, as it is kind of a safe pair of hands. However I would rather it be with a safe pair of hands than someone like McG or Bay.

So goodbye Star Trek trilogy... hello Star Wars!

"An individual with knowledge of the production has told The Wrap"

So not exactly confirmed then.

It may well be true but I'll take it with a pinch of salt until an official press release from Disney.

I'm sure JJ Abrams has repeatedly said it is NOT him. I read somewhere that he was asked by Walt Disney but he didn't want to do both Trek and Wars and would rather watch Star Wars as a fan so turned the offer down.

JJ was 4 Months old when Walt died? Looking forward to Episode VII just wonder how the fans will react as Star Trek & Star Wars fans don't tend to get on very well with each other!

I was referring to The Walt Disney Company and I very much doubt JJ Abrams would do it, seeing as he has a good working relationship with pretty much every studio but Disney, and presumably wants to continue working Trek...

Is this fulfilling the prophecy of the one who will bring balance to the Sci-Fi genre? Uniting both Star Trek and Star Wars with copious quantities of lens flare?

The prospect of twice the amount of lens flare he could get from the twin suns of Tattooine made him reconsider...

I hope he have a Ouija Board with him when he was asked!

Digital Spy are reporting it as fact, has it actually been announced yet or are they overblowing rumours and murmuring?

(EDIT: Disney's ABC News are still suggesting it's just rumours and not actual fact http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/...-wars-18307820 I'd be tempted to believe them over anyone else)

If you follow the link in the OP which is the website that "broke the news", you'll read in the first few lines that this apparent confirmation comes from someone working close to the production.
This is almost like a Sun report saying "an insider" said.......

It could quite well be true, but as i said earlier, i'll believe when Disney make the official announcement via a press conference/release.

I'm suspecting the media+celebrity reaction is treating it as fact because it may have been a bit of an open-secret in their business that this was likely to happen.

The amount of vitriol aimed at JJ Abrams on the net is shocking but funny at the same time.

Some people really do hate him don't they!

Let's hope Lindelof joins and writes a truly baffling script which deals with the origin of the Jedi, a quest to find the answers to the Force, and Jedi Knights doing stupid stuff like trying to befriend Rancors and other dangerous aliens.

The flare is strong in this one.
