Aww dangit! He is one of my favorite directors, would have loved him on Star Wars instead of star trek. Then again he makes Star Trek remotely interesting to a Star Wars fan like me lol

the guy is clever enough to leave Star wars alone. lets be realistic here, the last 3 sucked horse balls compared to the original 3. now why would J.J wanna ruin his reputation trying to make something thats going to be compared to a classic when he knows the originals will always be the best.

its like asking a top artist nowadays to repaint the mona lisa and make it better.
