JJ Abrams has been the man trusted with rebooting some of the biggest movie franchises of all time but don't expect to see him handle another one any time soon.
Abrams has been responsible for giving new life to the Star Wars, Star Trek, and Mission Impossible franchises over the past decade. He's even worked on reboots on the small screen, serving as an executive producer on HBO's Westworld.
“You know, I feel incredibly lucky to have gotten involved in things that I loved when I was a kid,” he told People. “In fact, even Westworld, which we’re here for tonight, is one of them."
“But I don’t feel any desire to do that again. I feel like I’ve done enough of that that I’m more excited about working on things that are original ideas that perhaps one day someone else will have to reboot.”
Abrams went on to dismiss complete remakes of movies, saying that any reboots should be moving the stories forward and introducing things that are "relevant"
“You know, I do think that if you’re telling a story that is not moving anything forward, not introducing anything that’s relevant,” he added, “that’s not creating a new mythology or an extension of it, then a complete remake of something feels like a mistake.”
