Abrams' involvement in the new trilogy, everyone's been wondering whether or not he'll be bringing over some of his 'Star Trek Into Darkness' talent into the new 'Star Wars' universe. Now that Zoe Saldana has expressed interest and may even fight for a part, will this become a reality?

'Star Wars: Episode 7' is still a few years away, but it's all the internet can talk about...even though everyone knows nothing about it.
