Posted by Erik Henriksen on Thu, Jan 24, 2013 at 2:18 PM


News coming in from around the nerdternets: J.J. Abrams is closing in on a deal to direct the next Star Wars movie. (WHAAAAA???!!!?!1) Disney isn't confirming anything yet, but hey, the Hollywood Reporter is pretty reliable, right?

Sources confirm to The Hollywood Reporter that the Star Trek director is negotiating to direct Episode VII, the next installment in the fabled franchise.

And Variety!

The Mouse House is closing the deal with the prolific producer and director, who is currently finishing Star Trek Into Darkness for Paramount.

And that's, like, all there is so far. But by all means, let us do what nerds do and and pick this news to death before we know anything else about it.
