Star Trek 3 news

Not much at this point. Just trying to find a new director since J.J. Abrams is leaving for some other never heard of movie series...

Lately, good news for "Star Wars" fans has meant bad news for Trekkies. For example, when J.J. Abrams signed on to direct "Episode VII," it seemed inevitable that he would relinquish his helming duties on a third "Trek," but a new report from Deadline could spell very good news for those faithful to the Starship Enterprise.

According to the site, Joe Cornish is Paramount's pick to replace Abrams for the untitled third film in the rebooted "Star Trek" series or, as we're calling it, "Star Trek Into Even More Darkness."

 

What's interesting about that pick is that Cornish has directed only one movie, the stellar "Attack the Block," but his name has been tied to a bundle of other exciting projects, mostly in association with his friend Edgar Wright.

Cornish and Wright wrote Steven Spielberg's "The Adventures of Tintin" along with "Sherlock" scribe Steven Moffa. And the duo have teamed up again for "Ant-Man," Wright's next directorial effort and the Marvel Studios movie scheduled to immediately proceed "Avengers: Age of Ultron." If that wasn't enough geek cred for one man, Cornish also been working on presenting an adaptation of the science-fiction classic by Neal Stephenson, "Snow Crash," to Paramount.

For storyline purposes, ST:ID is a good spot to end it... but I'm sure they won't...

 

Good news is that there's plenty of good Star Trek stories out there...

Joe Cornish? What a horrendous choice. "Hey, he directed an awful British flick, let's sign him on to do Star Trek!"

 

This film is doomed before it even gets off the ground.

Yeah, I think the third movie will be a new story, no connections to anything before. At least I hope so, this crew needs to start their own story line.

Alfonso Cuaron would have been my choice.

I love him, but no. Cuaron makes intimate movies against big backgrounds. Star Wars movies are big movies against big backgrounds.

Maybe a stand alone movie would work well with him but not one of the sequels.

At least it's not Uwe Bowle.

Would Ridley Scott be fun for this?

After directing two Star Trek movies, J.J. Abrams took himself out of the running to direct the third by accepting the Star Wars Episode VII gig instead. Ever since then, one of the big questions surrounding Star Trek 3 has been who who would take his place.

As of last month, Joe Cornish, director of Attack the Block and co-writer of Ant-Man, was said to be the favorite. However, a new report indicates that he’s no longer involved, either. Hit the jump for details.

Variety slipped the update into a larger article about the hiring of relative newbies J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay to help write Star Trek 3. According to their sources, while Cornish was indeed in talks with Paramount and Skydance at one point, he is “no longer involved” with the production.

Additionally, there’s no word yet on whom else Paramount has in mind. But a decision can’t be too far off. Though the studio has not yet announced a start date, we heard last month that they were hoping to shoot in 2014 so the film could be ready in time for the franchise’s 50th anniversary in 2016.

The second one was boring so a new director could be what they need.

I'm so glad I'm not the only one who thinks that as well.

I know you couldn't base a whole movie around him, but I'd love to see them use the character of Harry Mudd in a subplot or something.

 

Beyond that, maybe a big budget treatment of the Gary Mitchell story, or an expansion of one of the better episodes ("Let that be your last battlefield" would be a good one, and timely).

 

I'm not that big a fan of this rebooted universe, but that's some stuff I'd watch.

They want to do 5 movies with this cast. I really think they need a couple of new stories for now, maybe with a new enemy only a part of this timeline. But I would like to see at the end of the forth one a teaser of The Doomsday Machine.

 

There has been no mention of Gary Mitchell, so they can twist it that Kirk and Mitchell never met before.

 

My only problem with Mudd is they will probably get Jonah Hill to play the part...

 

 

I like the new timeline, gives us the original characters with new stories, but they do need to be careful with changing to much..
