    JJ Abrams to direct Star Wars VII

    J.J. Abrams will direct the next "Star Wars" film for Disney, taking stewardship of one of Hollywood's most iconic and lucrative film franchises, an individual with knowledge of the production told TheWrap.

    "Argo" director Ben Affleck was also in contention, another individual with knowledge of the talks told TheWrap.

    Ever since Disney bought Lucasfilm last year and announced it would make new "Star Wars" films, fans, members of the media and industry executives have speculated about which director would take the job. Abrams' name always came up, but he told Entertainment Weekly in November that he wasn't going to take the job.

    Those were all 3 actresses in Abrams' shows; Felicity, Alias and Fringe. Just a joke.

    I'm not too upset that it's not Lucas. I mean, the last three Star Wars movies were trash (in my humble opinion).

    I'm not a HUGE Abrahms fan, but he did a great job with the Star Trek movie. I'll be cautiously optimistic.

    I no longer care about anything here except for the Entertainment Forum, which sucks; the Music forum, which sucks; and the Magic forum, which does NOT suck.

    Love y'all!

    Except for all of y'all.

    The movie will be good but since it's JJ....the ending won't make any sense.
    The Knicks are back?

    Honestly, I can't think of many more who could do well with Star Wars. I don't particularly care for the fact that they're making more but I don't think he'll be awful.
