I would move mountains for Steven Spielberg to direct.

I would also do the dame 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.
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.

Speaking as a huge x-men fan, who has read all the comics for 20 years. I would disagree. X-men was about tolerance and tolerance is never one sided.

While we're at it, will the X Men films be prohibited in Russia now? ;-)

Please Paramount, get Steven Spielberg


All the Trek fans hating on JJ Abrams. I sure hope some of you get what you deserve.


JJ did great with Trek. the critical and commercial success is solid proof and now that JJ is gone , here we are scrambling for shady directors.

Its so sad...a lot of trek fans rather see Trek stay second rated to star wars just for the purpose of casting a director with a shady resume.

Wars had JJ, Trek should get Spielberg.

Has Spielberg ever expressed interest in any form of Star Trek?

NO,

However he is JJ's friend and mentor, he also produced Super 8 and I love Steven and his films so that counts

I've never seen that Bieber movie, and likely never will, but GI Joe: Retaliation was a loud, incoherent mess; although, the ninja mountain fight was kind of enjoyable . Singer would be great, and Bird would be even better, maybe .

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

According to "The Inquisitr", Chu has not been approached about directing the next Trek movie. All a rumor to this point, folks. Strap in for a lot of them, I'd say.

Link to story:
http://www.inquisitr.com/890024/star...coming-sequel/

Since it seems Bad Robot will have a production role in the next movie even if Abrams doesn't direct it, I wonder if Paramount would consult him about his director preferences if he can't do it.

Except for his lens flares and brewery stuff, J.J. Abrams isn't the problem of the films. I'd rather like to see all the writers replaced.

I wonder if Abrams does his "down-to-earth" approach in the Star Wars film as well. He shouldn't do it, as none of the previous films did it, they all used custom sets, except for the throne room finale in Star Wars, they never used existing places.

That's not entirely true. The interior of Amidala's palace in episodes 1 and 2 plus assorted exterior Naboo locations were all shot in real places.
