J.J. Abrams: "I’m now more excited about working on things that are original ideas that perhaps one day someone else will have to reboot."

Looks like Mr. Reboot/Remake/Lens-Flare has finally had it with selling his soul to the devil.

Over the past decade or so J.J. Abrams has rebooted, successfully might I add, "Star Wars," "Star Trek" and "Mission: Impossible."

/Film has him saying this:

"You know, I feel incredibly lucky to have gotten involved in things that I loved when I was a kid. In fact, even Westworld, which we’re here for tonight, is one of them. 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."

Do notice that he doesn't really mention sequels or prequels.

 "Mr Abrams we need to make a Ghostbusters-Back to The Future crossover".
"No, I'm done with reboots, its limiting my artistic ability".
"We'll give you a budget of 900 million and 10% take in merchandise".
"How many do you want?"

Original content Abrams has actually directed in his film career: "Super 8." That's it. Of course on television he's the man behind "Alias," "Lost" and -WUH?- "Felicity."
