Well, with Star Wars Episode VII (A New Dawn?) well under way, director JJ Abrams has been talking about the future of the other Star franchise he’s involved in and where he fits in now that the galaxy far, far away has his full attention.
The guys at collider have chatted to the man of the hour and he seems a little melancholy about the whole deal:
“It’s a little bittersweet. But, I will say that I’m going to be producing the movie. Whomever it is that directs the film will be someone we all know is going to keep the cast and crew in good hands. I feel very lucky to have been part of it, and it definitely feels like the right time to let someone come in and do their own thing. I certainly don’t want someone to come in and try to do what I would have done. We want to hire someone who’s gonna come in and bring their own sensibility. I’m very excited to see what comes next, despite feeling jealous of whomever that person is.”
So now that JJ is out of the Captain’s chair, who should step in to guide the USS Enterprise? Let us know in the usual ways…
