Joe Cornish To Direct STAR TREK 3?
 
According to this link... http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/movies/n...ar-trek-3.html ...Attack The Block director Joe Cornish is Paramount's first choice to take over the directorial reins for the next Bad Robot feature.

I haven't seen ATB, so I can't really pass comment, but Trek 3 would only be his second movie.

The reports tipping Jon "the man who saved G.I. Joe" Chu are more credible to me. For the international action market Paramount is aiming at, Attack the Block might as well be a Fellini film.

I don't really have a problem with whoever they end up choosing. Abrams will be there as a producer, as will Orci and Kurtzman.

The look should be similar to the last two outings and most of the important pieces (characters, ships and sets) will already be in place.

Attack the Block was enjoyable enough, I guess. G.I. Joe 2 was utter shite. I'm still hoping for the guy who directed Rise of the Planet of the Apes, which was excellent.

If they go with Cornish, they need to call the next movie Attack the Balok!

More info from Variety:

Seems as though Cornish was already offered the job once previously:

Quote:

No formal offer has been made and Cornish could pass on the project a second time. He last turned down the sci-fi tentpole in May.

They're making a big mistake if they don't get Shatner to direct.

Haven't seen it either, but I wouldn't be too concerned that it would only be his second film, given that Trek 09 for Abrams was his second film.

My first choice would be Brad Bird, because of his work on MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - GHOST PROTOCOL. Like Nimoy before, he'd be able to work the ensemble.

Except Cornish's resume is nothing compared to what Abrams's was when he started ST09.

It isn't, I'm only referring to his work as a film director. Given how well ATTACK THE BLOCK seems to have turned out (going by its reception), I think that shows he's just as capable. He doesn't have the experience Abrams had as a longtime Hollywood executive and writer, but a lot of good directors started off not having any of that and have turned in impressive works anyway.

I know nothing about him, but it wouldn't be the first time something like this has happened. The director of Jurassic World I believe had only done a low-budget movie when he was hired, and the Tron: Legacy director hadn't even made a feature film.

Re: Joe Cornish To Direct STAR TREK 3?
 
A very curious choice if true. I would have expected someone who has done a big budget movie with decent boxoffice results. I haven't seen the one movie that he directed, but having writing experience is a plus. But who knows, maybe he is the next great thing. If he has already turned the job down once means he has many offers and can afford to do that.

Could be with Abrams stepping back, Paramount might be downsizing Star Trek again.
Personally, I hope he declines the job again.
