According to Deadline Hollywood, JJ Abrams is directing the next Star Wars film. I, for one, think this is a great idea. But until official confirmation arrives, it's still a rumour, albeit a strong one.
The internet has already had a lot to say already, but the one thing that Abrams' hiring will bring is a degree of secrecy that can only be beneficial. I'd like to go into this one knowing as little as possible.
