No one is getting hired based on their knowledge of canon.

J.J. watched all the classic episodes and movies, and even read a couple of old novels in preparation for ST'09. What more "canon knowlege" does one need to make a Star Trek film?

That assumes Abrams doesn't know anything, and I believe he did his research.

At any rate I don't think it's necessary that a director know that much about canon. Maybe with even less knowledge, he'll bring a fresh perspective to the franchise, like Abrams did with Trek.

William Shatner is available.
Shatner's directing career peaked with TFF.
If Paramount would keep their hands out of the budget once approved and out of the script then Shatner may be a good choice. Paramount really butchered up TFF leaving Shatner with just a shell of a script and budget from what he wanted in the first place. They are more to blame than Shatner on that movie.
I'm not sure how much better The Final Frontier might have been without Paramount's interference. Improved, definitely, but the core story itself wasn't the strongest Trek could have.

Re: JJ Abrams says Rupert Wyatt would be great director for Star Trek

If I remember correctly, Harve Bennett and Nicholas Meyer had NO knowledge or history with Star Trek before they made WOK, the BEST Star Trek movie ever. But they did their research, just like JJ did. Rise of the Planet of the Apes was really good, MUCH better than I expected it to be. I'd love to see Wyatt direct a Star Trek film, or a Star Wars film for that matter.

Leonard Nimoy would be good, not cause of canon, but cause I think he did a great job with STIII and IV. AS for Frakes, I'm not so sure; he's not bad, there's just something about his style that I find lacking.

Re: JJ Abrams says Rupert Wyatt would be great director for Star Trek

To be fair to Jonny Frakes, I suspect Berman's heavy hand on TNG's movies. After all, he was charged with 'protecting Gene's vision'.

If I recall correctly, Berman opposed the Dominion War in Deep Space Nine and wanted it over really quickly. He said it went against "Gene's vision".

"Gene's vision" also lead to a major problem with Insurrection as well.

"Gene's Vision" was $$$, women and sex, the order in which he got any of them was not important.

He doesn't know the ultra secret extra special super duper handshake. The one that only real Star Trek directors get.

Isn't that what Harve Bennette (sp) did when they were trying to come up with ideals for Star Trek II? TWOK was more happy accident than a deliberate choice; Bennette happening to think Khan would make a great returning villain.

Re: JJ Abrams says Rupert Wyatt would be great director for Star Trek

And boy was Bennett right about that. You don't have to be a lifelong fan to make a good franchise movie, that's an absurd argument to make. WOK is exhibit A of that fact. You need to be a competent director and do research to understand the material. Bennett, Meyer, and JJ all did this, and I'm certain that Wyatt would as well.
