That's not confirmation at all, the Guardian article is just referencing another gossip website! It'll be confirmed when Abrams and/or Lucasfilm/Disney say it's happening.

Now confirmed:

Does that mean I have just lost 3 creme eggs to Paul?

RE: J.J. Abrams to direct next Star Wars film?

I know not everyone will be happy with this news but I, for one, am. Being a fan of Fringe and the work he's done on Star Trek gives me hope that THE franchise is in good hands.......bring on the lens flare!  rolling on the floor laughing

EDIT: can I have a creme egg please Smile

Inspired by the news, I rewatched his Star Trek reboot last night - i'd forgotten what a great job he did with that. Think my subwoofer's still recovering Smile

I'm sorry, but anyone who claims to love creme eggs, yet has eaten 2 out of a possible 50 in a month isn't deserving..... If they were mine, they'd have been done by new years. Smile

I know.  Smile  Last year I became addicted to them and at the same sort of time put on a bit of weight, so I have been avoiding them up to now.  I have eat 5 galaxy boxes of chocolate bars though since Xmas.  Smile

Sorry to bring people back down to earth (no pun intended), but "Lost" (started off well then just seemed to abuse viewers intelligence with making it up as they went along)?  And "MI3" (admittedly that wasn't that bad - way better than "Lost", but nothing like as good as MI2, not that I'm suggesting that John Woo *would* be an obvious choice for director).

You're right, Star Trek was rubbish and don't get me started on Super 8, what a load of old dross that was!

 

Do I actually need to point out I'm kidding?
