Abrams Staying With Star Trek And Mission Impossible Series

I’m pretty sure that somebody on the Paramount lot punched a wall this week.

It can’t be easy for the studio’s honchos knowing that the guiding light behind their space movie franchise is about to get busy with his beam elsewhere. And as big a deal and popular as Star Trek might be, Star Wars has it beat right there.

Paramount’s Vice Chairman Rob Moore has spoken to The LA Times about JJ Abrams‘ future with the studio.

JJ. will continue to develop projects for us including a new Mission: Impossible, and he is committed to produce another Star Trek.

Simple as that. “Committed.”

Now, a producer’s role is a nebulous thing, and changes both from film to film and producer to producer, particularly on bigger projects where many hands take hold. What it will mean for Abrams to produce Trek can’t be predicted exactly.

And it’s worth pointing out that nobody is saying Abrams won’t direct the third Trek picture. If you can go from Trek to Wars, surely you can go back again, even hop between them?

It’s not like we’re talking about shephard’s pie and treacle sponge…
