Two directors who have helped other people out

Yesterday you may remember The Bearded Trio reported on the sad story about a terminally ill gentleman named Dan who would love to see the new Star Trek movie before he passes away.  Well after word spread on the web J.J Abrams has done the very descent thing and granted his wish. His wife reportedly received a call from director J.J. Abrams.

A friend of Dan posted earlier:

“JJ Abrams just called Dan’s wife and left a message. He’s going to try to arrange a screening for Dan, either of the film or at least of the 9 minute promo reel,”

Dan’s wife said that her husband had planned to see the extended “Star Trek” preview during a screening of “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” but was hospitalised instead.

Thursday, the friend who posted the original plea for help, updated Reddit users with the good news: “Holy cow everybody!!! I just heard from his wife that they are going to do it!! I don’t know who it what the path was to get there but thank you so much to everyone that tried to help!!!”

Well kudos to J.J. Abrams for helping out and I hope Dan enjoys the movie.
