Could be with Abrams stepping back, Paramount might be downsizing Star Trek again.
Personally, I hope he declines the job again.
I think it likely the next film will have a moderately scaled back budget - $150m ish. Just speculation, but perhaps hiring a lower profile director is a cost saving exercise, allowing as much resource on screen as possible.

Re: Joe Cornish To Direct STAR TREK 3?

All due respect to Cornish, love his work and look forward to what he does in future but I think at this time it's too big a film for him to jump to from something like 'Attack of the Block'. Star Trek is a big budget action film, it's still a franchise that's trying to get back on it's feet and I think it needs a Director with a bit more experience directing something this large. Didn't even Abrams say that Directing MI3 helped prepare him for making Star Trek?

I would think that being a monumental 50th Anniversary film, that the pressure is going to be enormous. I'm not convinced he'll be able to handle the task.

Re: Joe Cornish To Direct STAR TREK 3?

Is no one here familiar with Joe Cornish as one half of Adam and Joe from the Adam and Joe show? Sure it was a mid 90s late teens-early 20s stoner piece of crap, but they referenced Star Trek a lot - especially TNG. Hell, they did a take over TV night on the BBC all about TNG and made this choice song:



If Joe Cornish, now with a low budget but visually impressive film under his belt has a chance to create a Star Trek movie - a franchise he obviously has as much respect for as you or me - I'm all for it.

I don't really have a problem with whoever they end up choosing. Abrams will be there as a producer, as will Orci and Kurtzman.

The look should be similar to the last two outings and most of the important pieces (characters, ships and sets) will already be in place.
That is the fact of the matter.

I certainly understand the thinking here. But, dependent on who gets the gig, we may get a very different "feel" - despite the standing sets etc.

For instance, what if the new director favours a more static, locked off style in their shot composition? Lots of long shots, slower editing etc. What if they choose a new composer for the score - with a radically different style to Giacchino?

Personally, I wouldn't object to any of that - we might get something even better. But I guess a lot of fans would prefer a more "homogenous" type of trilogy.

Re: Joe Cornish To Direct STAR TREK 3?

Having seen and purchased Attack the Block I can attest to how good it is. If that film is any indication, he has a great sense for direction.

If you enjoyed any of the Cornetto Trilogy then you would enjoy ATB. Not quite a silly but they still feel related, like 2nd cousins or something.

More shoehorned references to previous Trek!

Re: Joe Cornish To Direct STAR TREK 3?

Joe Cornish might be a good director, with a successful low budget movie, and is a Star Trek fan. But Jon "G.I. Joe" Chu would be a better fit for Reboot Star Trek. And hopefully, he will give Justin Bieber a cameo to make it even more awesome-er

I believe that was only broadcast on Channel 4 on 'Take Over TV'. Very fun show, loved their Star Wars bits. Years ahead of Robot Chicken.

Re: Joe Cornish To Direct STAR TREK 3?

Bryan Singer could have directed. Trek is truly going back into Star Wars shadows.

Chris Nolan would have been another good choice. His name alone will bring in the money.

Joe is giving me a bad feeling. A popular and high profile director with a good body of work should have directed the 3rd film.
