Speaking to Filmz, the director said that despite being a fan of the franchise, he wouldn’t like to take up the helm on the new film.

‘I used to be a Star Trek: The Next Generation fan. Like, big time,’ he said. ‘But no, I probably wouldn’t do that.

‘I don’t know if me getting involved with a franchise is the best thing for me. When studios smell franchises, they smell money. And they’ll try to do what they can to the franchise to make it make the most money it can make, and a lot of those interesting ideas kind of fall by the side of the road.

‘Do I like Star Trek on its own without the politics of making it? Yes, absolutely. But do I think that you could make it in the way that I would want to make it? Probably not… which makes me not want to make it.’

Abrams has had to step back from Star Trek because of his work on Star Wars 7 movie.

He recently told Empire of similarities between the two movies: ‘I don’t know because we’re just getting started. There are infinitely more questions than answers right now.

‘Though I came at both [films] from very different places, where they both meet is a place of, “Ooh, that’s really exciting”.

‘And even though I was never a Star Trek fan, I felt like there was a version of it that would make me excited, that I would think, “That’s cool, that feels right, I actually would want to see that’.’
