Ever since Disney announced its acquisition of Lucasfilm and plans for "Star Wars: Episode 7," rumors have been flying about who will be involved in the project. Legendary science fiction director/producer/writer J.J. Abrams, who directed 2009 and 2013's "Star Trek" films, has announced that he will not be in the running, it seems. He recently told told Empire Magazine:
“There were the very early conversations and I quickly said that because of my loyalty to ‘Star Trek’, and also just being a [‘Star Wars’] fan, I wouldn’t even want to be involved in the next version of those things.”
Abrams is sticking to the "Star Trek" franchise, it seems -- Vulture reports that he's committed to another "Star Trek" movie after the upcoming 2013 film.
