Has Paramount Settled On New ‘Star Trek 3’ Director?

Joe Cornish once again rumored to helm the next film

Joe Cornish’s name is once again attached to “Star Trek 3,” and this time, it may be the real thing. Cornish, whose major directing work is centered around a single film that did not make back its budget at the box office, is said to be in early talks with Paramount as the studio’s first choice to replace J.J. Abrams on the next Star Trek film. Cornish’s name first came up last May when he was reportedly on a list of directors being considered by Paramount and its partners o …

‘Star Trek 3’ Loses Joe Cornish

Director will not join the franchise for the third film

Joe Cornish will not direct “Star Trek 3,” according to Variety. Paramount Pictures continues to seek potential directors following the departure of J.J. Abrams, who will helm Disney’s “Star Wars: Episode VII.” Cornish was the subject of persistent rumors as an early favorite to lead the franchise, and Abrams was pleased about his possible involvement. “I adore him and love him and can’t wait to see what he does next,” Abrams recently told MTV News. “Hopefully it will be Star Trek. Whatever it is, he’s brilliant. ‘Attack the Block’ was one of my favorite movies of the year …

Paramount: Think Carefully About New Director

This is a time to get someone with experience, not potential

I don’t know Joe Cornish. And to be honest, his name wasn’t really known to me, either, before it popped up on a directors short list for “Star Trek 3” a couple months back. Hollywood seems to be totally in love with Cornish, and maybe they have reason to be.

Ashley Miller, Zack Stentz Rumored For ‘Star Trek 3’

Two got their start on another Roddenberry project, ‘Andromeda’

Even with Zachary Quinto hinting that production of “Star Trek 3” could begin in less than a year, it seems that Paramount Pictures is still deciding on who is going to write. And for the first time since J.J. Abrams took over as director, it may not involve the very busy Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman. Instead, Paramount might be taking a look into another franchise empire with the likes of Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz. At least that’s according to a new report from Badass Digest that is attributing such information to “excellent sources.” Miller and Stentz got their star …

Could Joe Cornish Direct ‘Star Trek 3’?

Name is on a list of directors from Paramount

The current “Star Trek: Into Darkness” is not even out of theaters yet, but already speculation and rumors are starting to circulate on who will direct “Star Trek 3.” The first name to surface is Joe Cornish who is probably more known for his writing than his directing for films such as “Tintin” and “Ant Man.” The Los Angeles Times reports that Cornish’s name is on a list of potential directors that is being put together by Paramount Pictures, making it clear that either the studio does not expect J.J. Abrams to be back to direct a third film, or they want to have so …
