i was sad when i read an article that states she had to choose between star wars and jurassic park because she is a really noteworthy asset. the manner she answered the interview shows her enthusiasm on her craft and genuine opinionated suggestions. i wish she would still reconsider being involved in jurassic park.

It looks like J.J. Abrams was destined to direct a STAR WARS sequel. Just think, if this deal would have happened before the new Star Trek movies, J.J. Abrams would have never been involved in that

i agree on that, star wars would have not been done so sooner if it wasnt for the success of star trek and if it was the other way around, i think abrams will just be exclusive for star wars especially that disney plans to do multiple projects with star wars annually when 2015 arrives and there is also a some early rumors that he might leave star trek for star wars like what singer did with x men and superman returns.
