How about Jon Favreau or Gavin Hood or Joseph Kosinkski?
All have done big budget sci-fi.
Director does not concern me too much. I think they should add a TNG-era writer & producer to the team because I think they can assist K&O
help to prevent K&O doing stupid things.
I like those names and there movies. I would like add Martin Campbell to the list of directors I would like for this movie.
