The Nerdgasm of the Month goes to the news of Star Trek director/Lost co-creator/Alias mastermind J.J. Abrams taking the reigns of the first installment of Disney's planned reboot of the Star Wars franchise.
When Abrams originally denied the story in November, he said, "I frankly feel that – I almost feel that, in a weird way, the opportunity for whomever it is to direct that movie, it comes with the burden of being that kind of iconic movie and series. I was never a big Star Trek fan growing up, so for me, working on Star Trek didn’t have any of that, you know, almost fatal sacrilege, and so, I am looking forward more than anyone to the next iterations of Star Wars, but I believe I will be going as a paying moviegoer!”
Uh huh. And we say we can't fathom how many zeroes were written on the offer that was slipped across a conference table to Abrams somewhere in Burbank.
