JJ Abrams has had a very good last few years. He has enough money to fill up a vault and swim around in gold coins like Scrooge McDuck but most importantly, he has gained the respect of billions of people for doing what seemed impossible: make Star Wars not suck anymore. He did it a few years before with his successful Star Trek reboot that resurrected the franchise from the depths of bad sequel hell. So, if he was able to bounce Star Wars back from the disastrous Jar Jar/Hayden Christiansen days, what else could he improve upon? Tolkien? Indiana Jones? The Sopranos? The sky is the limit. The guy has a real gift for taking formerly good things that turned sucky and making them unsucky. That's a gift from the good Lord Jesus, son.
In this video from Above Average called Star Wars: The Force of Abrams, imagines what he would be capable of if he were unleashed upon other flailing franchises. I would willingly pay to see a JJ Abrams Hobbit reboot.
