Disney Hires J.J. Abrams to Direct New “Star Wars” Film

Hey, why not? It’s not like he could be worse than George Lucas.

Here’s the really interesting part: In addition to creating the television series “Lost” and producing “Cloverfield”, Abrams directed another legendary sci-fi franchise installment: The 2009 film version of Star Trek.

So Star Wars and Star Trek now have the same director. Should be…interesting.
