Why J.J. Abrams Won't Direct Star Wars Ep. 7

January 02, 2013


J.J. Abrams revealed in an interview with Empire Magazine that he was approached early on to direct the much-discussed Star Wars Episode VII...and turned them down

“There were the very early conversations [with Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy] and I quickly said that, because of my loyalty to Star Trek and also just being a fan, I wouldn’t even want to be involved in the next version of those things,” Abrams said. “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.”

Check out the latest issue of Empire Magazine for the full interview. J.J. Abrams' latest installment in his Star Trek reboot series, "Star Trek Into Darkness" will be released in theaters on May 17th, 2013.
