Badass Digest's Devin Faraci claims that while at this past weekend's San Diego Comic-Con, he kept "hearing tons of rumors that JJ Abrams is on the verge of dropping out of Star Wars".


Faraci added, "This has been something I've heard for a while now, and from multiple insiders. I know that he didn't want to shoot the movie in England and was overruled, but that happened a while ago. This weekend at Comic Con I continued to hear these whispers.


No director for [Star] Trek 3 has been found yet - might Abrams end up coming back after all, leaving Star Wars to someone else? I'm expecting Star Wars news out of the German Star Wars Celebration at the end of the month - if there is some sort of announcement of a title or casting and Abrams isn't there, start wondering."


We reached out to Lucasfilm for official comment. Naturally, they denied the report. "There is no truth to the rumor," a Lucasfilm rep told us. "JJ is having a great time working on the script and is looking forward to going into production next year."


Also when clicking the link it discusses also how JJ wanted to shoot the movie here in Los Angeles to be closer to his family.  How will this change your mind if at all to see the new Star Wars if J.J. is indeed not involved in the project anymore?

That would be a devastating loss. I hope & pray this does not happen.

Star trek is big and all but come on man this is star wars. Star wars is one of those unique franchises that will alway be famous and people will be watching still 50 years from now.

"Bryant had come to rage against the idea that Howard's clownish disposition could overtake the locker room, the Lakers' culture, and had warned Howard that he would never, ever let it happen."

If JJ backs out I'll be [expletive]ing pissed.  That means we'll get George Lucas at the helm and that won't end in anything good...

JJ Abram is very good with these kinds of movies. Star trek wasn't a fluke. He was very responsible for making that movie great. Many other directors would have [expletive]ed it up. Losing him for star wars would be a huge let down. Guy is perfect for this movie.
