Cloverfield and Super 8 were great monster movies, and Star Trek was good, and to date the only star trek movie i have ever seen. I am just not sure he makes Star Wars type movies. I am not knocking his accomplishments, he has done amazing things in movies, and in no way am i putting him down, but i just don't know if he can do the style that Star Wars fans are used to. I could also be completely wrong. He is an amazing director, and he could completely blow this thing out of the water. As with everything else in this turbulent time in the star wars universe, only time will tell.
