I've heard that it's a female lead in this film, so it makes sense to go with Abrams, I suppose, because of Felicity and Lost. But I'll remain skeptical until I see it.
I like Abrams, but will admit he has some weaknesses. Hes a master of pacing and creating tension and scenes. But then when you go back and watch, you see how hollow and empty some of his stuff is. Honestly, hes probably better for Star Wars then Trek considering Trek is a little more heady and highbrow.
Vaughn would have been superb, or Fincher, Cameron, etc..........But overall, Abrams wont be bad. Hes basically a safe choice.
