Makes kinda sense since he already turned Star Trek into Star Wars . . .
Latest rumor is that Lost supremo J.J. Abrams will direct the upcoming Disney Star Wars sequel (never thought you’d ever read that line, now did you?).
Nothing is confirmed as yet, but it makes sense considering that Abrams’ 2009 Star Trek reboot is a better Star Wars movie than any of George Lucas’ “prequels.”
According to the “source” behind this rumor Argo director and former J.Lo boyfriend Ben Affleck was also considered for the job.
