J.J. Abrams Says He’s Done Rebooting Things

Though he’s surely not done with daddy-issue themes, J.J. Abrams may be done expressing them by giving fatherly nurturing to the films of his childhood. Which is to say, the Star Wars, Star Trek, Mission: Impossible and Westworld producer has lost interest in reboots.

“You know, I feel incredibly lucky to have gotten involved in things that I loved when I was a kid,” Abrams explained to People. “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.”

So there you have it. It’s all original ideas from here on out—straight from the mouth of the man who needlessly swore and swore that Benedict Cumberbatch’s Star Trek guy name would not be “Khan.”
