Breaking News: Star Wars Episode VII has a director!

JJ Abrams will direct Star Wars Episode VII.

The Wrap are reporting that “an individual with knowledge of the production” confirmed the news to them within the last hour.

The director – whose next film is ironically Star Trek Into Darkness, out May 18 – previously claimed back in November that he wouldn’t take the job;

 

“There were the very early conversations and I quickly said that because of my loyalty to Star Trek, and also just being a fan [of Star Wars], I wouldn’t even want to be involved in the next version of those things. I declined any involvement very early on. I’d rather be in the audience not knowing what was coming, rather than being involved in the minutiae of making them.”

 

The website speculate that this appointment, if confirmed, could cause friction in the relationship between Abrams and Paramount, where Bad Robot – Abrams’ production company – is a top supplier to them. Abrams has been attached to several projects in a producing role, but had a free schedule when it comes to directing. It appears that schedule has now been filled.

Lucasfilm, Bad Robot or CAA – who represent Abrams – have yet to comment on the report.
