Abrams (kinda) Clarifies His "Star Trek" Position

by | April 26, 2006 | Comments

Arriving quickly on the heels of the news that J.J. Abrams would be directing a 10th sequel to "Star Trek" is a clarification (of sorts) from the director himself: He’s not (yet) signed to direct, but he is attached to the project in some very important (yet vague) capacity.

From Empire Online: "The whole thing was reported entirely without our cooperation," says the director with a hint of regret. "People learned that I was producing a Star Trek film, that I had an option to direct it, they hear rumours of what the thing was going to be and ran with a story that is not entirely accurate … We’ve made a pact not to discuss any specifics."

Call me nuts, but Variety is generally pretty reliable on these types of scoops, so I guess we’ll just have to wait and see what happens.

Spock out.
