Sources have reportedly confirmed that J.J. and execs are nearing a deal to make it official.

J.J. was not the only director to be considered! Supposedly, Ben Affleck was in contention as well.

Back in November, it was announced that Star Wars helmer George Lucas sold Lucasfilm to Disney for $4.05 billion – a deal that allowed for the making of more films.

J.J. also directed films in the popular Star Trek series.
