J.J. Abrams doesn't want another Trek director

August 7th, 2011

J.J. Abrams would be "jealous" if anyone else directed the 'Star Trek' sequel.

The filmmaker - who is now officially in negotiations to film the follow-up to the 2009 sci-fi movie - has not yet made a final decision on whether to work on it or not, but admits he would be upset if anyone else got the job.

He said: "The idea of anyone else saying, 'Action!' to those actors in those characters on that set makes me jealous."

In addition to 'Star Trek' and 'Super 8', J.J. also helmed TV series 'Lost', about a group of people who seemingly survive a plane crash on a Pacific island, but he admits the ending to the series has been a disappointment to many - though he hasn't heard anyone give a satisfactory possible climax.

He said: "For years, I had people praising 'Lost' to death, and now they say, 'I'm so p***ed at you for the end of 'Lost'.

"I think a lot of people who were upset with the ending, were just upset that it ended. And I've not yet heard the pitch of what the ending should have been. I've just heard, 'That sucked.' "
