Apparently J.J. Abrams Is Frontrunner To Direct STAR WARS: EPISODE IX

Though the Force Awakens director will be skipping the next instalment in the new trilogy (that'll be taken over by Rian Johnson), word is he's at the top of LucasFilm's list of potential Episode IX directors and could well return to helm the final film. Click on for more...



The final movie in the new Star Wars trilogy isn't set to hit theaters until 2019, but that hasn't stopped Latino Review from doing some digging and coming up with the name of a potential director for it. According to them, J.J. Abrams is looking likely to return to helm Star Wars Episode IX after Rian Johnson (Looper, Brick) handles the middle instalment, which is due for release in 2017.

Apparently Disney/LucasFilm are very pleased with what Abrams delivered with The Force Awakens, and despite rumors of behind-the-scenes disagreements, it seems he's the man they want in charge of Episode IX. Of course, we'll have to take this as a rumor too for now, and there is a lot that can change before cameras start rolling on this project, but we'll keep you posted if we get any updates.
