J.J. Abrams to direct ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’

Well, it looks like we finally have a director for the already massively-hyped Star Wars sequel. The man taking on the job? None other than Star Trek director J.J. Abrams! This is quite an interesting turn of events, as Abrams at one point made it quite clear that he was NOT going to be involved. The news has recently broke and is currently running rampant across the internet. Entertainment Weekly is but one of the many media outlets confirming the news.

Abrams has a brief but impressive filmography, directing 2009’s Star Trek and 2011’s Super 8. He just finished filming Star Trek Into Darkness, so it looks like he’ll be jumping right into a new franchise. Star Trek to Star Wars… interesting. The man obviously knows his Sci-Fi, so I’ll say that Star Wars is in very good hands.

Star Wars: Episode VII is currently slated for a 2015 release, so I’m sure we’ll start hearing casting news and plot details in the near future.

‘Zombieland’ TV show back on track

The 2009 hit zombie comedy ‘Zombieland‘ may not be getting the big screen sequel everyone wants, but news has just broke that a spin-off TV show is heading to Amazon Instant Video. It is set to take place after the events of ‘Zombieland’, although the original cast will more than likely not be returning.

While I’m glad that this series will be continued in some form, it’s still sad knowing that the cast that made the original movie so awesome won’t be on board. I’ll probably give it a shot once it comes out, but don’t have very high expectations. Oh well, I suppose we shall see how it is WHEN it is!

Head on over to i09 for more details on the plot, though be warned it may contain some minor spoilers.

What do you guys think? Are you on board for a Zombieland TV show? Let me know in the comments below.
