Exactly like J.J. Abrams, who had directed a lot of television, including some of the most cinematic big budget pilots in television history, before being tapped to direct a big budget franchise movie. Note that I said "they usually start out directing films with modest budgets and/or television."

Re: Joe Cornish To Direct STAR TREK 3?

Nick Meyer is extremely unlikely, but he's a family friend of JJ Abrams, so it's not totally out of the realm of possibility.

William Shatner is available. He is willing to help with the script too.

And he will also play two roles: the old Kirk & Harry Mudd.

Yeah but if you looked at his music video pedigree, Fincher was still a pretty decent choice. That franchise has always been more about the directors than most (not talking AvsP stuff!), which is one reason why they all look a bit unique from one another, with only some similarities carrying over.

Cuaron is off the table for TREK too (not likely he ever was going to do it anyway), as he has sworn off space movies for good after GRAVITY.

I still think they need a modern equivalent to Meyer, somebody who isn't a big VFX guy, but a writer/director who does character/Character/CHARACTER. In other words, the guy who made THE STATION AGENT and THE VISITOR, who some of you may know as an actor (he played the total scumsucking rotten journalist who wound up covered in glory in the last season of THE WIRE.)

I doubt Tom McCarthy would be interested in a tentpole movie. He was pretty disappointed with his experience directing the pilot of Game of Thrones (which was so thoroughly reshot that it bears another director's name and only gives him credit for being a "consulting producer").

I had no idea about THRONES, but that does explain the Dinklage turning up, I guess.

Reference Alien 3 - I still contend the Assembly Cut (essentially the Ditector's Cut) available on both DVD and Blu-ray, is a really strong movie. It's considerably superior to the theatrical release, and I'd go as far as giving it a very solid 4/5 stars.

Re: Joe Cornish To Direct STAR TREK 3?

While screenwriters transitioning into directing usually cut their teeth on television and/or films with modest budgets, people with a strong background in visual arts - such as directing music videos and/or television commercials - will sometimes make their feature film directing debut with a big budget film. As has been pointed out, David Fincher got a big franchise film as his feature debut, as did Joseph Kosinski more recently. Kosinski might be a good choice to direct a Trek movie actually. He'd certainly do a good job with the visuals. Whether he'd get the right tone is the bigger question.

Re: Joe Cornish To Direct STAR TREK 3?

I interviewed Kosinski last year and TREK came up sort of indirectly a couple of times. He has long been linked with a smarter remake of THE BLACK HOLE, and is interested in delivering something that has sense of wonder AND a smattering of good science, which to my ear sounded ideal for TREK. I told him about my old TNG pitch about a self-aware singularity (the one that Jeri Taylor dismissed with 'we don't do fantasy') and he kinda liked it.

I think the guy definitely needs better scripts.

I'd like to see either Matthew Vaughn, Brad Bird, Bryan Singer or Rupert Wyatt direct. I'd be pretty pleased with any of those...
