This is just a rumor and Lucasfilm has denied this, but rumors are swirling that J.J. Abrams (“Star Trek”) will drop out of “Star Wars Episode VII” to film “Star Trek 3”. Zachary Quinto recently said he could see Abrams directing the next Trek film and Abrams has always said being a huge Star Wars fan meant he was worried about the directing gig.

If this is true, is this a good or bad development for Star Wars?
