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

I think he's a good choice based on Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

He understands character, knows how to get good performances (even from CGI actors), and knows how to deal with large setpieces and visual effects.

I suspect, and expect, that much of the look/feel of the Enterprise will match 09 and ID, but whomever directs will likely have their own take on many things.

It may be at a different pace, or have a very different kind of story from what JJ Abrams would be comfortable telling, and I'd enjoy that.

Although I love what Giacchino brought to the musical table, there are other composers who could extend the universe further musically. Brian Tyler has some good material, for example (Children of Dune is excellent). Or someone else, such as Patric Doyle.

New blood could expand things in very interesting ways.

Why cant we get Peter Jackson to direct Trek 3.

Why cant Trek get a high profile critical acclaim director like what star wars is getting now.

I feel like Trek keeps getting Star Wars left overs.
Is this post a joke?

The first thing is easy to Google and see that he's not "the GI Joe guy."

Peter Jackson has not shown any interest in Trek that I'm aware of, and I'm not sure his style even fits the franchise, to be honest (which is not a criticism of either him or Trek).

Trek did get a high profile critically acclaimed director like Star Wars is getting now and a lot of people treated him and his team like crap.

And Trek has not now or in the past gotten Star Wars' "leftovers" in terms of cast or crew, so I don't even know what that is referring to.

Really, just an all around nonsensical post.

Anyway, Wyatt doesn't have much of a catalog of films to judge by, but RotPotA was outstanding, so I would have no problem with him taking over directing duties if it comes to fruition.
You want a taste of a Peter Jackson Star Trek: Take TMP, stretch it out twice as long, make the space walk be the center of the movie, and cap with with a To Be Continued.

Don't forget the musical number.

Star Trek will never be as big as Star Wars.

They should have let Bryan Singer do his big budget TNG Finale film.

My Stars that would be amazing, I love his work. Mostly in the superhero genre. But still loved it none the less

When was this going to happen?

Never. Instead, Singer hired Rob Burnett and Mark Altman to develop a tv pitch that would have featured distant descendants of Kirk and Spock set many centuries after TOS.

It never went anywhere.

I do believe that Robert Wise will probably be haunting you for the rest of your life.

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

I know he is "retired" and may not be able to want to stand the long hours but I think it should be Leonard Nimoy or Jonathan Frakes. Get a good director from within Trek this time, someone who would at least know something about the canon.

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.
