J J Abrams Has Officially Turned Down Star Wars Episode VII

In a Star Trek Into Darkness interview given to Empire magazine, JJ Abrams has clarified that he did, in fact, meet to discuss his directing the next Star Wars movie but he had his reasons and turned it down.

Here’s the apt bit.

This image comes from the current iPad version of Empire which is full of engaging readables and costs just 69p. Get it.

I’m surprised that Abrams was a real candidate, I have to admit. Maybe it makes more sense as a Trek-spoiling strategy.

My money is still pinned to Gary Ross – and so, for that matter, are my hopes. We can apparently expect an official announcement from Lucasfilm next month.
