It is not a shocking piece of news, but JJ Abrams has finally admitted that he will not direct the third Star Trek film. In a recent interview with Collider.com he admits that he will, however, produce the film.
“It’s a little bittersweet. But, I will say that I’m going to be producing the movie. Whomever it is that directs the film will be someone we all know is going to keep the cast and crew in good hands. I feel very lucky to have been part of it, and it definitely feels like the right time to let someone come in and do their own thing. I certainly don’t want someone to come in and try to do what I would have done. We want to hire someone who’s gonna come in and bring their own sensibility. I’m very excited to see what comes next, despite feeling jealous of whomever that person is”.
There you have it Maniacs. Pretty obvious as Star Wars Episode VII is into pre-pre-production right now. Who would you want to direct Star Trek 3?
Anyone else getting that X-Men 3/ Superman Returns feeling?
