JJ Abrams Dropping Out of "Star Wars: Episode VII"?

Posted: July 23rd, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
JJ Abrams Dropping Out of "Star Wars: Episode VII"?Submit Comment
JJ Abrams recently signed on to direct "Star Wars: Episode VII," which will likely head into production at the same time as "Star Trek 3." While there were talks about who will direct the third "Star Trek" film, Zachary Quinto recently revealed that Abrams may actually return to complete the trilogy.

During the San Diego Comic-Con, Badass Digest claims that it was constantly hearing rumors about Abrams dropping out of "Star Wars: Episode VII." At first, the rumors were about the director not being allowed to shoot the film closer to home, rather than England, but now it seems that there's much more to this. The director is simply unhappy.

We know that Abrams is deep into pre-production on "Star Trek: Episode VII," but anything can still happen. Many believe that if Abrams doesn't show up at an upcoming "Star Wars" event in Germany, there's a good chance that Abrams will head back to "Star Trek." Stay tuned.

This is a bullsh*t rumor that's been debunked. The writer fir BadAss Digest (really?) is just stirring up sh*t.

There is actually an update by the source:

UPDATE: I just want to make it clear that I never said Abrams is leaving. I'm just saying that I have heard rumors from MANY sources that he's been considering/threatening it. Other web types have heard the same. We've all been hearing it for MONTHS. There have been a lot of other sites that have been running with this part of the story as if it's in stone, and it isn't even close.

Even if true, it just means Abrams is using the press and media to apply pressure on Disney to get more of his way. It's called leverage.

Basically a non-news story, unless it's confirmed to be true and actually happening.
