Abrams Backpedals on Star Trek News

The Trek Today article I mentioned the other day was premature in its reporting that J.J. Abrams is going to direct the next Star Trek movie. According to an interview Abrams gave Empire magazine, “The whole thing was reported entirely without our cooperation… 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.”

So, producing: yes. Directing: maybe.

In reference to those “rumours of what the thing was going to be,” Abrams said, “We’ve made a pact not to discuss any specifics.” So all that stuff about Kirk and Spock: The Early Years? Not confirmed. Apparently, Abrams is a big fan of the original series, but that’s really all anyone has to go on.
