No way.

Meyer's directorial career was over in the 1990s. No studio would hand him the keys to a big budget movie now, and that includes Paramount.

That's a guarantee. Sorry.

Because the actors are contractually obligated for three films.

Plus, you don't really believe this new movie is going to flop...do you?

Re: star trek 3 without jjabrams

I will eat my hat if ST:ID flops.

I imagine it will be a much bigger hit than the first, which seems to be par for the course with most blockbuster franchises now, even if the films get progressively worse, a la Transformers.

Yea, with the momentum from ST2009 and how enticing the trailer is, I think even if the Critics and General Audience hate STiD*, it will still make enough of a profit to greenlight the third movie, before that Critic/General Audience hatred can affect the turnout

*I do not believe for one second that the General Audience and Critics will hate the movie, I'm just saying that I think no matter what happens that it will make enough for movie 3 to be greenlighted

Re: star trek 3 without jjabrams

If JJ is too busy to direct he should get Michael Bay. He's a money maker and does similar films. Or, if he's busy, get Kathrine Bigelow and the DoD to do it since Zero Dark 30 was so well received, they can put in some message how it's ok for the good guys to spy on you.

Re: star trek 3 without jjabrams

I don't think JJ being either directly or indirectly involved will make a huge difference. Much of the rest of the creative team will probably be the same and even if not, the tone has been set.

The third film will likely be the last with this cast anyway. Spin offs and new crew, with guests and cameo's by Quinto, Pine and Co. are not out of the question though. Maybe on T.V...

I don't see the similarity, beyond the fact that they both make big budget genre movies. Or is that what you're referring to?

JJ Abrams seems to be much more popular with the critics than Michael Bay, for example.

Re: star trek 3 without jjabrams

Personally I would like Abrams to talk Spielberg into doing Star Trek. I can see a press conference in 12months or so with JJ announcing that he will step down from the directors chair due to his commitment to Star Wars but talked his friend into taking over from him

That would be awesome. Spielberg is still the king!

Nick Meyer? I think he would be the first to admit there is no way he could helm a production like Star Trek what with all the green screen and effects considerations of today. Michael Bay might get some stick from the internet but his films are technically brilliant and the shots he sets up are very very complex! No one comes close to Bay in this regard imho... stay away from Trek though Bay!

I think the most likely director though will be Brad Bird.

Re: star trek 3 without jjabrams

I *just* remembered Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and I'd like to formally request that Steven Spielberg not do Trek

I forgot about it until now. I must have blanked it out somehow.

That was a close one.

That just means the actors must appear in three films if the studio chooses to make them. The studio itself is not contractually obliged to make those three films.

The leads in the Fantastic Four movies were contracted for three films, but the studio only made two due to poor box office returns.

Don't worry, Steven Spielberg, arguably the most successful director of all times, will not do the third Star Trek movie.

He is a friend of JJ Abrams and has collaborated with JJ Abrams and thats the only reason I bring his name up. Spielberg has not done a space movie (yet) whereas all the other big directors have. I think he would be interested. Trouble is Indy 4 was not good... so its put me off :P

Oh, now the idea is that Spielberg might not be worthy to direct Trek?
