1.) Making news out of a non-story is the word out of Empire magazine today in which J.J. Abrams confirms he turned down any involvement in Star Wars: Episode VII: There were the very early conversations and I quickly said that because of my loyalty to Star Trek, and also just being a fan, I wouldn't even want to be involved in the next version of those things. I declined any involvement very early on. I'd rather be in the audience not knowing what was coming, rather than being involved in the minutiae of making them. Abrams directed the upcoming Star Trek Into Darkness, which hits theaters in May and I have to ask, does anyone else find it mildly concerning that the level of imagination taken in approaching this new Star Wars trilogy already has the producers looking at a director with his own similar sci-fi franchise already in theaters? »
