STAR WARS Director J.J. Abrams Will Still Be Involved With STAR TREK 3

J.J. Abrams will presumably crack on with Star Wars: Episode VII as soon as post-production of Star Trek Into Darkness is complete. However, what does that mean for Paramount's planned third instalment in the latter franchise? Find out here!


According to a reliable source (see below), J.J. Abrams WILL still be involved with the Star Trek franchise beyond this May's Into Darkness. As many predicted when the news broke that the director will helm Star Wars: Episode VII, Abrams is set to serve as a producer on both the third Star Trek movie and the next Mission Impossible (presumably under his 'Bad Robot' banner). This was confirmed earlier today by Paramount Vice Chairman Rob Moore. "J.J. will continue to develop projects for us including a new ‘Mission: Impossible,’ and he is committed to produce another ‘Star Trek," he said. Of course, this doesn't necessarily mean that Abrams won't direct the third instalment as he could jump straight from Star Wars back to Star Trek. However, that may end up being dependent on whether or not Disney will want him back for Episode VIII!
