Rumors are swirling that Star Trek Into Darkness director, J.J. Abrams, may be dropping out of Star Wars: Episode VII due to some disagreements with the studio.
Director J.J. Abrams is hotter than hot right now, nearing Joss Whedon status, but he may be leaving his job as director of the next Star Wars film due to filming locations.
According to reports, Abrams doesnâ��t want to be away from his family for such a long period of time, as the studio wants to shoot Star Wars: Episode VII in England.
Badass Digest reports that multiple sources confirm that Abrams is quite close to quitting altogether for the highly publicized Star Wars film. After Disney bought Lucasfilm from Star Wars creator, George Lucas, for a cool $4 billion, they decided to move quickly and hired J.J. Abrams for the first Star Wars film produced by its new studio.
Digest has also revealed that the script for Star Trek 3 will be written by Ashley Edward Miller and Zack Stentz. The duo wrote the first Thor film for Marvel and they also have writing credits which include X-Men: First Class.
Weâ��re glad to hear that some new blood is being brought into the franchise, as some fans felt Star Trek Into Darkness felt a bit too familiar.
Despite Abrams concern about filming in England, the studio is reportedly bucking at moving the filmâ��s location to the U.S., which is reportedly a deal breaker for Abrams.
Collider reports that these rumors may become more solid if Abrams isnâ��t present at Germanyâ��s Star Wars celebration, which takes place very soon, between July 26 â�� 28.
