Uh, Lucasfilms tried doing exactly that with Star Wars. It didn't exactly go smoothly, to say the least.JJ Abrams isn't useless. If I were one of the powers that be, I'd be happy to see him kick off a film series.
I'd then ban him from the lot while someone else tried to resolve his plot points.
He can't follow up with a successful conclusion. Never has, never will.
