Re: Director Jon M. Chu Rumoured to be Front Runner for Star Trek 3.

Singer wanted to make a Prime Universe/TNG era Trek film because he was a fan of it and also friends with Stewart. I don't think he's interested in doing a sequel to a reboot of TOS (that he also didn't create himself).

TNG film five?! Oh my/oh no...

Who would accept the directing job for film 3 in a 4 part movie series?

Didn't Singer make a cameo in one of the TNG films?

^ Yes Nemesis. It's during the battle with the Scimitar. After Worf says "security team to deck 29". Singer takes over tactical for Worf.

Re: Director Jon M. Chu Rumoured to be Front Runner for Star Trek 3.

Now another sourceless random movie blog is reporting its NOT Jon Chu, but Rise of the Planet of the Apes' Rupert Wyatt.

http://www.cinematallica.com/exclusi...e-know-who-is/

He's a far more solid choice in my opinion.

Re: Director Jon M. Chu Rumoured to be Front Runner for Star Trek 3.

Well, my movie blog's unsourced rumors say that both of those sites are full of shit, and that the real director of STIII is going to be Anthony C. Ferrante, director of the smash hit SyFy TV movie Sharknado. The film will be titled Star Trek Bearpocalypse (no colon) and the plot will revolve around the Enterprise saving Earth from a global blizzard full of genetically engineered polar bears that were created by a rogue Starfleet admiral, borrowing heavily from an unfilmed Damon Lindelof script for Lost. You heard it here first, folks.

Seriously though, it's way too early in the game to be getting worked up over completely unfounded rumors.

Re: Director Jon M. Chu Rumoured to be Front Runner for Star Trek 3.

JoBlo probably got it from Latino Review http://latino-review.com/2013/08/05/...t-star-trek-3/

And that scares me. Latino Review has had A LOT of big scoops that turned out to be accurate.

More scary because of this guys previous credits:
When the Kids Are Away (2002)
Step Up 2: The Streets (2008)
Step Up 3D (2010)
The Legion of Extraordinary Dancers (2010–2011)
Justin Bieber: Never Say Never (2011)
G.I. Joe: Retaliation (2013)
Believe 3D (2013)

Re: Director Jon M. Chu Rumoured to be Front Runner for Star Trek 3.

I would move mountains for Steven Spielberg to direct.

I would also do the same for Brad Bird,

I would even take James Cameron as a director for Trek 2016 as long as he does not write the script.


David Yates and Peter Jackson will be cool directors for Trek as well

Am sorry to break this to you guys but it would be better if trek 2016 gets an A List critically acclaimed director.


Bryan Singer is great, he directed X2 and produced First Class , it just happens that both films are considered to be the best X-Men films. However I am not a fan of how he incorporates one sided political/social propaganda in his films.

I see your Ratner and raise you Joel Schumacher. Who better to pick up the third movie in a four part film series.

The source material for X-Men is "one sided political/social propaganda". And there's nothing wrong with a writer or director using a film to promote their point of view.
