J.J. Abrams Officially Returning for ‘Star Wars: Episode IX’
We knew it wouldn’t take Lucasfilm long to find a new director for Star Wars: Episode IX. When Colin Trevorrow parted ways with the studio last week, it seemed obvious that there would be two names at the top of their list: Rian Johnson, director of The Last Jedi, and J.J. Abrams, Star Wars executive producer and director of The Force Awakens. Johnson took his name out of the running pretty early on, and now it seems as though Abrams is stepping up to the plate.
The Third ‘Cloverfield’ Movie Has Been Delayed to 2018
The Cloverfield films have made a business model of sneaking up on viewers. The first movie showed up out of nowhere, a surprise production from J.J. Abrams, with a trailer that had a release date, but not even a title. History repeated itself with last year’s 10 Cloverfield Lane, which Abrams also sprung on audiences when the trailer arrived online and in theaters just months ahead of release. But it looks like things are going to be different on this third Cloverfield; you are definitely going to see it coming because it’s just been bumped back from its original release date.
The ‘Star Wars: Episode 8’ Script Is So Good, J.J. Abrams Wishes He Were Directing It
J.J. Abrams revved up the engine on the ol’ Star Wars ship, launching the series on a new journey with The Force Awakens, but declining to return for the subsequent sequels. Instead, Rian Johnson (Looper) and Colin Trevorrow (Jurassic World) will be steering the franchise from here on out, directing Episodes 8 and 9, respectively. Johnson is in production on Episode 8 right now, and according to The Force Awakens star Daisy Ridley, the script is “very good.” How good? Abrams regrets turning down the chance to direct it.
