Yes you read that right, according to Deadline the guy who helped write The Adventures of Tin-Tin as well as the upcoming Ant-Man, and more importantly who directed Attack The Block, is apparently at the top of the list of potential directors for Star Trek 3. Hell Yes.
Nothing in official yet of course however I, for one, think this would be a great choice. Of course even better would be if they let him write the movie and keep Orci, Kurtzman, and Lindelof away from it, far, far away from it, but there’s no news on that front just yet.
Being a massive Trekkie I’m be sure to keep you all posted. Paramount is trying to schedule shooting the film for Summer 2014 so they’ll have to lock it down reasonably soon.
