Cornish for Star Trek 3?

The Search for a New Director

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.

I wasn't impressed with Attack the Block. It just seemed like an ok movie and nothing more. I think sometimes folk give extra points to foreign/small budget films.

Either way he seems like a capable director. I'd be more worried about the writing at this point.

I really liked Attack the Block and he works a lot with Edgar Wright, another one of my favorites.  IMO Abrams wasn't the problem with STID, it was Orci/Kurtzman/Lindelof's script so agree with Wiseguy on the writing part.

 I have not seen his other movies and no nothing about him. Is he actually Cornish? will he write the new film all in Cornish.. because that I'd go see.

Tin Tin was pretty good. I keep waiting for a sequel announcement for that one.

Sounds to Me , that Paramounts up to it's old cheap tricks by reducing the budget on the next film , since the last one didn't do the cash they wanted .I don't know much of this Director , but this franchise next film needs new blood , since JJ. is in a galaxy much more greener in His pockets , an ruined "Into Darkness". I say 'sure , why not " , maybe some new writers too and they maybe able to save this  series .

 ohh.   I was hoping for Abbie Cornish...

DarkXid, I had the exact same thought!

That being said, I am enjoying this recent trend of taking indie directors and giving them a whack at a big-budget franchise.

It would be nice to have a Star Trek that played out more adult and not like a couple of 20 somethings out on a road trip and let's see what shenanigans happen. I like Chris Pine but they haven't portrayed him any way as someone who is actually technically educated which at least Kirk was even when getting his shirt ripped lol!

I see Joe Cornish as a likely upgrade.  And if Kurtzman and Orci aren't writing, then we have a chance at ST3 being the best of this Trek incarnation (and I really like 2009 and ST:ID).

The first movie was just OK, Star Trek: Into Darkness should been have been called Star Trek: Into Dogshit.  With a weak nonsensical plot that was an obscene waste of Cumberbatch's talents.
