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.

Just the other day, for a hot minute, we were hearing rumors that J.J. Abrams was thinking of dropping out of 'Star Wars: Episode 7.' This was quickly debunked by Lucasfilm, which seemed to disappoint those who were hoping the rumor was true. Were you one of the ones hoping Abrams was actually leaving 'Star Wars'?

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?

When George Lucas handed the reins of 'Star Wars' over to Disney, it was understood that the man behind the most popular science fiction universe of all time would only be involved in 'Star Wars: Episode 7' in a limited capacity. However, we didn't realize just how limited it was! Lucas recently spoke out about his involvement in 'Star Wars: Episode 7' and revealed that he hasn't spoken to director J.J. Abrams. Like, at all.

As with the most recent development seasons, 'Star Trek Into Darkness' director J.J. Abrams has his hands in a number of TV pots -- from the 'Fringe'-like 'Almost Human' to NBC's sci-fi drama 'Believe' -- but the latest project could prove the most high-profile to date. Abrams will develop 'Twilight Zone' creator Rod Serling's last script as an event miniseries, but what will the buzzworthy project entail?

This weekend 'Star Trek Into Darkness' roared into theaters, and -- like any project based on a fanboy favorite property -- it's been put under the nerd-complaint microscope. One of the criticisms that stuck is that J.J. Abrams and the writers unnecessarily included a shot of Alice Eve in her skivvies. Abrams addressed that on 'Conan' and tried to apologize by showing a cut scene of Benedict Cumberbatch showering.
