    J.J. Abrams is beaming from one franchise to another.
    The Star Trek Into Darkness director is set to helm the next installment of Star Wars, EW has confirmed. (The Wrap first reported the news.)
    “As a kid I was always a fan of special effects. Watching movies I was constantly trying to figure out how they did it, whatever the effect was. Star Wars was the first movie that blew my mind in that way; it didn’t matter how they did any of it because it was all so overwhelmingly and entirely great. It was funny and romantic and scary and compelling and the visual effects just served the characters and story. It galvanized for me; not for what was exciting about how movies were made, but rather for what movies were capable of,†Abrams told EW back in November. (In the same interview, he also denied that he would be directing any Star Warsfilms.)

    i hope it's equally as shitty as the most recent three so that i can continue to think star wars peaked in the 70s.
