It's just a combination of factors that are largely 'what if's' just now.

Star Trek Into Darkness is about ready to go. A third film will depend on how it performs. But it would probably be at least 2016 (assuming three years based on the original 2012 sequel date) before it would be released. IF Darkness is successful enough to warrant one.

The Star Wars film is dated 2015. Fine, he's completed work on Trek just now so he has time to spend making it and then it would be question of how it was recieved/performed (though being Star Wars probably flopping is near on an impossibility) would dictate plans for Episode VIII.

I don't think on a personal level it's entirely impossible for all parties to make these things work if they wan to but I think on a personal level it's probably not good for one guy to be so majorly involved in two iconic franchises simultaneously. And I mean that both for him and for the respective franchises. But then there's no point making too many assumptions just now. Too early. Plus, it's too dependent on a multitude of unknowns yet.

I agree 100%

I have a feeling JJ will hand off a potential third Trek to one of his Bad Robot buddies, provided Into Darkness does good business. Brad Bird comes to mind.

I don't think one has to steal focus from the other. He made Super 8.

I honestly wouldn't have a problem with Brad Bird directing Star Trek. He did a great job with Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol. I find that one to be far, far, far superior to Mission: Impossible III.

Brad Bird could be interesting. I enjoyed Ghost Protocol (it's not better than the first or third films but it's way beyond the second - but it's a skoosh weak on the villain front and has some dodgy CGI. It's biggest asset is the Burj Khalifa sequence) quite a lot but he's already got his next film lined up called '1952' which is set for Dec 2014 release just now.

Of course he was also rumoured for Star Wars as well. That could have been interesting as well. But he supposedly has his own dream project he wants to get made as well ('1906') which is meant to be a megabudget project. So he may not be available. Of course it still depends whether a third film even goes forward.

I would think JJ would want to direct other things besides franchise movies. I mean this is his career he's building. I thought Super 8 was excellent.
