Paramount's going to let the Bad Robot people run this show for a while - so if the director isn't Abrams it will be someone mutually agreeable to him and to the Paramount suits.
They really don't need Meyer anywhere near the franchise again; these aren't his characters or his universe. He made a good movie thirty years ago. A lot of people who are actively working in the business have made a lot of good movies since.
To be fair, he also directed The Undiscovered Country,
which I like quite a lot, and contributed significantly to The Voyage Home,
which was the most commercially successful Trek movie up until recently.
But, yeah, that was a long time ago.
(I like your sig, btw. There are times I wish we could retire both "iconic" and "canon.")
