STAR TREK 3 Finally Beams Up A New Director Following Roberto Orci's Departure

Despite the fact that Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) was recently named as a frontrunner, Paramount Pictures have finally found a director for Star Trek 3. You could say this filmmaker was Bourne for the job as he races into outer space. Figured out who it is yet?


Deadline reveals that Paramount Pictures have chosen Justin Lin to direct Star Trek 3. J.J. Abrams is too busy finishing Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens to return to the director's chair in time for the threequel's 2016 release (the franchise's 50th anniversary), and while it appeared as if writer Roberto Orci would take over, he recently parted ways with the project for pretty murky sounding reasons! Regardless, the studio have decided that the Fast & Furious director is the right man for the job, something which is no great surprise after his three films in that series earned over $1.7 billion! Though he's shooting the first two episodes of True Detective's second season, Lin has a gap in his schedule after Universal delayed his Bourne Legacy sequel in order to focus on Paul Greengrass and Matt Damon's actual Bourne movie. It's not clear what his Star Trek 3 deal means for those reports about him helming a multi-part Fast & Furious finale. Thoughts?
