Devin Faraci of Badass Digest wrote a report suggesting that while at San Diego's Comic-Con, he heard speculation that Abrams could drop the job of a lifetime.
Lucasfilm was quick to attempt to push rumors far, far away. The production company denied the allegations to IGN Monday.
"There is no truth to the rumor," a Lucasfilm rep said in the statement. "J.J. is having a great time working on the script and is looking forward to going into production next year."

Faraci later updated the report to make it clear that the rumor was simply that -- one that he said he and other bloggers have been hearing from many sources for months.
In the post, Faraci mentioned that Abrams didn't want to shoot in England, presumably because he would want to stay in Los Angeles to be with his family, and was apparently overruled. Adding fuel to the fire, he brought up that a director for "Star Trek III" has not been chosen yet, and that Abrams could return to that franchise.
Abrams earlier hinted about directing the third "Star Trek" movie. In an interview with Playboy, he said it's a possibility. However, both "Star Trek" and "Star Wars" are set to shoot in 2014, and Abrams earlier told Empire that he grew up as a fan of "Star Wars" and wasn't as much of a Trekkie.
"Star Wars: Episode VII" is planned for release in 2015.
