Star Trek director J.J. Abrams had previously stated that he would not be interested in directing the new Star Wars movie, before it was eventually announced that he would in fact be the man for the job. Now, J.J. and Kathleen Kennedy have been talking about how they managed to come to an agreement.

During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Abrams explained, “I learned firsthand how incredible and persuasive she is. The thing about any pre-existing franchise -- I'd sort of done that. But when I met with Kathy, it was suddenly very tantalizing.”
 
Kennedy then added, “J.J. was just on the ceiling when I walked out the door. [He had] very genuine concerns' about his obligations elsewhere and the impact on his wife and three kids, given the likelihood that the film would not be shot in Los Angeles. And then there was the unique nature of the franchise. If there was any pause on J.J.'s part, it was the same pause everybody has -- including myself -- stepping into this. Which is, it's daunting.”

The screenplay for Star Wars: Episode VII is currently being worked on by Michael Arndt, while there have also been rumours that Chloe Moretz could be in line to star in the female lead role. Star Wars: Episode VII currently has a planned release date for 2015, although J.J. Abrams could be set to change that if need be.
