Sounds like he read the script and bailed.
Did he time travel to do so? There's no script yet.

It's pretty obvious he time traveled.

Apparently you can't do JJverse fan films. So if Abrams was in full control, they'd probably stop stuff like Phase II or Renegades as well.
You do know that has all pretty much been debunked?

Agreed. He's mostly retired at this point, and in his 80s. Directing a major tentpole film is not an easy job.

I bet Nicholas Meyer would do it, but his directing career is more or less over at this point (he's been solely a screenwriter for over a decade).

Even with the admiration and appreciation for those names and their respective work I have, I find the idea of fresh blood more and more appealing now.

Re: Joe Cornish To Direct STAR TREK 3?

I wonder if Orci ends up directing it? That way we have just one person we can focus all our hate on!

Now that I think about it, I really like the idea of a one-stop shop for hate.

Indeed. Which is why it almost certainly won't happen.

Alex Kurtzman did make his (feature) directorial debut in 2012, but this would be quite a bit bigger than that small film, and it's also unclear how involved Kurtzman will be, since he isn't writing.

Re: Joe Cornish To Direct STAR TREK 3?

It's common enough for screenwriters to get into directing, but, as with Kurtzman, they usually start out directing films with modest budgets and/or television to gain experience before getting a big budget franchise film.

Source? It's not that I doubt it, but it would be better for either of you to provide an authoritative source.
