#LOST J. J. Abrams to direct/write ‘Star Wars: Episode IX’ and close out the trilogy

The man who launched a new era of Star Wars is returning to the franchise. J.J. Abrams will write and direct the as-yet-untitled Star Wars: Episode IX. Chris Terrio (Argo, Justice League) will co-write the film. Abrams is taking the reins from Colin Treverrow (Jurassic World), who departed the project earlier this month (see “‘Star Wars’ Parts Ways With Another Director”).
