Do You Believe The Rumours of Star Trek 3’s New Director?

Aside from Urban's inspired acting, most the new Star Trek is way off mark.

Rumours are rampant about who will take over the helm in directing the new Star Trek franchise‘s next voyage. Ithink anybody will do a better job then JJ Abrams, who on many accounts, has shared his dislike and lack of understanding of the Star Trek world.  Star Wars, his new project, is the yang to the Federation’s yang after all.

Anyway, here’s the new thoughts from Deadline:

Deadline has heard from their sources that Paramount and Skydance Productions are interested in getting Joe Cornish, the writer and director of the 2011 cult hit Attack the Block and frequent collaborator of Edgar Wright(who shot a single scene in “Into Darkness”), to direct the third installment of their “Star Trek” reboot.

Besides Attack the Block, Cornish has been a frequent writing partner with Edgar Wright, having co-written the upcoming Marvel Studios movie Ant-Man with the popular director.

There’s been word that Paramount want to start filming Star Trek 3 sometime in 2014 with Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci having returned from the previous two movies to write the three-quel.

This is all well and good, but what will happen to the lens flare?
