Star Wars: JJ Abrams boldly goes to direct a galaxy far, far away

Star Trek director JJ Abrams has been hired to direct the latest instalment of another space-opera franchise, Star Wars Episode VII, according to Deadline.com.

The Lost creator’s appointment ends months of speculation about who would take the job after the sale of George Lucas’s multi-billion sci-fi franchise to Disney in October last year. The list of directors previously linked to the project includes Matthew Vaughn (Kick Ass), Brad Bird (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol), Guillermo del Toro and even Argo director Ben Affleck.
