When 'Star Wars: Episode 7' was initially announced, a 2015 release date was attached, leading everyone everywhere to believe that J.J. Abrams' film would arrive in May of that year. And why wouldn't they? All six previous 'Star Wars' films have opened in that month and that month has certainly been kind to the franchise. However, new buzz suggests that while the latest entry in the saga will indeed hit theaters in 2015, it'll break tradition and do so a little later in the year.

‘Stranger’: Watch the Teaser for J.J. Abrams and Bad Robot’s Mysterious New Project

J.J. Abrams is infamous for his "mystery box" method of promoting his and his production company's projects, deliberately obscuring details (like the nature of 'Super 8') and sometimes outright lying (Khan in 'Star Trek Into Darkness'). He's taken it all to a new level with 'Stranger,' a Bad Robot production that is so tightly under wraps that we didn't hear about it until this teaser arrived ... and we don't even know if it's a movie, a TV show or something else entirely.

But how close is this to actually happening?

Ever since J.J. Abrams signed on to direct 'Star Wars: Episode 7,' it's been unclear whether he'd be available to return to the directing chair for 'Star Trek 3.' With Paramount angling for a 2016 release, and Disney pushing to get 'Episode 7' in theaters in 2015, there's no way Abrams could do both. But it looks like Paramount is looking at a replacement, and Jon M. Chu is supposedly at the top of their list.

As expected, things have been awfully quiet on the 'Star Wars: Episode 7' front, with rumors and vague suggestions trickling out while few pieces of legit information remains behind lock and key (with Disney's army of lawyers standing guard). However, could this be because the movie is in peril?

Talk has been turning more and more to the possibility of director J.J. Abrams dropping out of the project entirely. (Say it ain't so!)

Paramount is looking to move full steam ahead on 'Star Trek 3,' and according to Spock himself, the film will begin shooting next year. That seems like a rather quick turnaround, but if the film wants to meet its own 2016 release deadline, they better get moving -- and fast. But will J.J. Abrams be back in the director's chair?

As with the most recent development seasons, 'Star Trek Into Darkness' director J.J.
