It seems there is no rest for JJ Abrams right now. Not only is he directing one of the most anticipated movies in all of Hollywood, producing three separate TV shows, he is also promoting the the book “S”. The Telegraph conducted an interview with JJ Abrams about the book, but found time to sneak in a few Star Wars questions too. Questions that pertained to 3D, spoilers, and the toils of reading the Episode VII script.
Will they keep secrets from the audience as far as the trailers and TV spots?
“We were trying to preserve the unexpected for the audience, but it came across as if we were trying to be too clever,” he told The Telegraph. “Star Wars is in every way a different animal. It’s always been a more open, fan-engaged universe than I’ve been used to, so I’m sure there’ll be some sort of compromise. But it feels to me like there’s a purity in not knowing every little thing.”
Will Star Wars be in 3D?
"Yeah, I’m not like a 3D fanatic," he says. "I did feel pressure to do it on Star Trek Into Darkness, but it ultimately I understood why it was important to the studio. I was actually really glad in the long run that we did it that way, and I think it worked all right."
On what it is like to read the Episode VII script in his office:
“Are you kidding me? My god. My office… I’m working on the Star Wars script today and the people in my office have covered up all my windows with black paper. I guess they wanted to make sure no one could see what I was doing. It seems rather extreme.”
