• J.J. Abrams Says He Has No Idea What He's Doing With 'Star Wars'

      With three new "Star Wars" in the works, we've heard plenty of casting rumors from Carrie Fisher's jokes to the return of Harrison Ford, but we haven't heard nearly as much about the plot of the film.


      That's probably because director J.J. Abrams isn't sure what direction the new trilogy is taking just yet.

      In an interview with Empire magazine, Abrams admitted he's not sure how he's approaching the film, comparing his work on the next "Star Wars" to his "Star Trek" series.

        I thought the story ideas were already in existence from the original story that Lucas wrote.

        I think Lucas just said that to get Disney to buy it, now he's like "Suckers!"

        Seriously, though, it's a long, long, long, long way from a loose outline of a story to a finished movie, so I can see how it might be difficult for Abrams to be able to actually wrap his head around a project of this magnitude. Especially since he's really just interpreting someone else's ideas.

        People thankfully gave up within a day or two after he was announced, so try again.

        You say that as if I made a lens flare joke. But, no, I made a lens flare joke joke, as in a joke about lens flare jokes.

        I see your point, and I understood it when I made my comment, and my comment still stands, so try again again.

        If there are going to be lens flares some people want to be surprised!

        I hope there is a lens flare during the opening crawl.
