Star Trek 3: Starfleet Drift
The new director for the upcoming third Star Trek movie has finally been decided…
Paramount Pictures, Skydance Productions and JJ Abrams’ Bad Robot just set Justin Lin to direct Star Trek 3, filling the biggest open directing assignment out there with the filmmaker credited with reviving the Fast & Furious series. Lin helmed four of the films that grossed $1.9 billion in worldwide box office.
He replaces Roberto Orci, who got that job after being involved as co-writer of the revamped Star Trek series. The first two installments were directed by Abrams, who then left to direct a revival of the Star Wars franchise with Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Well, if nothing else, Justin does know how to direct an action movie…so there is hope.
I'm just glad it's finally moving forward.
Make it so and make it now!!
