G.I. Joe: Retaliation director up for Star Trek 3?

August 6th, 2013 by bash Comments

A new report has surfaced claiming that John M. Chu could be in line to direct the next Star Trek film.

Latino Review are saying that G.I. Joe: Retaliation director could be in line to replace outgoing JJ Abrams, who will be tied up with Star Wars: Episode VII.

Paramount is hoping to have Star Trek 3 in theaters in 2016 in order to coincide with the 50th Anniversary of the property, which means that the studio is currently on the hunt for a new director.

Joe Cornish (Attack the Block) was also previously mentioned as a possible helmer for the sci-fi franchise.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
