J.J. Abrams done with Star Wars?
Badass Digest, a film website, left a pretty hefty rumor regarding Star Wars 7 and J.J. Abrams. The site said this week that Abrams had decided to opt out of "Star Wars" in favor of "Star Trek 3." It was quite possibly, the biggest rumor of the weekend, and many believed that the director had completely bailed on the project altogether. Apparently, Abrams did not want to shoot in London, and I guess there were other issues which made Abrams want to leave the project.
Today, Lucasfilm has sent a confirmation about whether or not J.J. Abrams left, I suppose this rumor got so big that the studio felt compelled to draw a line in the sand once and for all.
So has J.J. Abrams left "Star Wars 7?" The Answer is NO
Lucasfilm has stated the following:
"There is no truth to the rumor. J.J. is having a great time working on the script and is looking forward to going into production next year."
So there you have it, I am glad Abrams is still attached! Star Wars 7 will come out sometime summer 2015!
