ATTACK THE BLOCK Director Joe Cornish In The Running To Helm STAR TREK 3?
While he's apparently just one of many names being considered at this early stage, Attack the Block director and Ant-Man writer Joe Cornish is the first director to be linked to the third instalment in the Star Trek franchise which J.J. Abrams will be unable to helm due to his Star Wars commitments.
He worked on the The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn and Ant-Man screenplays, and made his directorial debut with the brilliant British sci-fi/horror movie Attack the Block. However, it is now being reported by Latino-Review's Elmayimbe that Joe Cornish is on the shortlist of filmmakers that Paramount and Bad Robot are considering as a replacement for J.J. Abrams. A third instalment in the franchise is far from confirmed at this point, especially after Star Trek Into Darkness' disappointing opening in North America. However, the studio ARE reportedly quite keen to get Star Trek 3 in theatres by the time the series celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2016. As J.J. Abrams will be far too busy with Star Wars Episode VII to work on that film, expect to hear more about any possible replacements over the coming weeks and months! What do you guys think?
