J.J. Abrams On Why He Stopped Directing ‘Star Trek’

Abrams had directed Star Trek (2009) and Star Trek Into Darkness (2013), but the franchise was handed over to Justin Lin for this past summer’s addition, Star Trek Beyond.  The Huffington Post reported they had received an exclusive clip on why exactly the director left the Enterprise.  Abrams believes directing the third movie would have “made the series stale” and wanted someone with a new perspective working on the films.  The article also mentioned that aside from Star Trek Into Darkness, Abrams does not typically direct the sequels to his work.
