To Whom Should the Movie Mantle Pass Post-Abrams

Interesting question from another thread.

If you love AbramsTrek, who do you think would be the best person / persons to direct / produce (and write, if you know enough about writers in Hollyweird) for the Trek film franchise to continue to capture the feel he's created, once he's fully moved on into Star Wars-land?

If you're not-so-much for AbramsTrek, who would be your dream creative team to take Trek movies in a different direction at that point?

My personal dream team would be the Cuarón (brothers and son) led by Alfonso Cuarón, who has a proven ability to tackle a range of genres including SF and who is now (thanks to a collaboration with the estimable J.J.) working in television as well, as an added potential bennie for those of you yearning for new televised Trek too.

Anyone else? Suggestions and reasons?

Ronald D. Moore.

He's got a fantastic sense of character, knows the material backwards and forwards and isn't afraid to ruffle fan feathers. He's also amazingly giving to the fans and one of the best things about his run at BSG was the weekly podcasts featuring him, sometimes his wife, a glass of scotch and an unvarnished view of what he thought worked (and sometimes didn't) about the most recent episode.

Re: To Whom Should the Movie Mantle Pass Post-Abrams

Interesting choice, certainly his prior Trek experience and a run of BSG which produced some of the best SF television ever would make him a pretty excellent candidate for a rebooted show. And he wrote First Contact, which was the best-rated of the TNG movies. Very interesting...

Re: To Whom Should the Movie Mantle Pass Post-Abrams

I would like to see someone like Neill Blomkamp or Matthew Vaughn take over, I think either could do well and, keep the tone of the new Trek films while making their mark on the film at the same time. I just hope they don't rush it.

Ronald D Moore is a great choice, I think he would make a great film!

Only if it had a father/son dynamic as it's central focus.

Ronald D. Moore and Ira Steven Behr.

Ronald D. Moore has a good sense of Star Trek.
Ira Steven Behr has courage to experiment with stories and he can do something new instead of (TOS/TNG/DS9) reboot.

Anyone other than Singer would be a disappointment. He's who everyone wants, and I think, deep down, he wants it too. He needs a good bonk on the head.

Re: To Whom Should the Movie Mantle Pass Post-Abrams

In terms of a distinct visual style, I'd have to go with Sam Raimi, whose films often reminded of cinematographer Barry Sonnenfeld's visual jokes when working with the Coen Brothers.

Though whether Star Trek is ready for those kinds of elaborate visual stagings is another question.

Michael Bay.

Ok, ok, just kidding. Don't hurt me.

If it were possible to bring back people from the Berman era, and it's probably not an option, I think the team from DS9 could do some really good new big screen Trek.

I don't think it really matters who the director is, as long as he is given a great script and understands--and respects--the material.

Good God, no to RDM, if for no other reason than to keep his Klingons from ever returning to the screen. Besides that, his writing has always been hit or miss -- mostly miss.

I'm curious to see what Tim Burton would do with the franchise. Johnny Depp as Spock anyone?
