Deadline is reporting that Paramount may have their director for Star Trek 3. With JJ Abrams off in a galaxy that is far far away, the director’s chair has been left wide open. Who will take over the duties in Abrams absence? Deadline is hearing a strong rumor that it will be Joe Cornish. Cornish, who first directorial project was Attack the Block, is an accomplished screenwriter as well who co-wrote both The Adventures of Tin Tin and the upcoming Ant-Man.
“Long story short, he’s gotten exposure to bigger scale project than Attack The Block, in which he admirably depicted a full scale alien invasion on a relatively small budget. Doing a movie like this would certainly put his career on a warp speed path”.
Paramount wants to start production in 2014 for the upcoming sequel. Still time to decide on someone else. Fans of the Attack the Block (of which we here at Mania are) and Star Trek sound off below.
