Star Trek Into Darkness: Spock and Kirk

With Star Trek reboot director J.J. Abrams jumping over to the other side to take on Star Wars: Episode VII, obviously he was not going to have the time to make Star Trek 3 for Paramount.

But who will replace Abrams? That’s a question that still exists, but according to a report, Paramount is looking at Attack the Block director Joe Cornish for the job.

While Attack the Block is Cornish’s only big directing credit, he’s been involved in some big productions as well. He co-wrote director Steven Spielberg and producer Peter Jackson’s The Adventures of Tintin with Edgar Wright and Steven Moffat, and co-wrote the upcoming Marvel flick Ant-Man with Wright, who will also direct the movie.

Cornish also appeared as an actor in small roles in Wright’s Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, which featured Star Trek star Simon Pegg, so the move could make sense. Pegg’s oft-co-star Nick Frost also starred in Attack the Block, so maybe we can get him cast in Trek if this goes official.

While Abrams now looks to Star Wars, he will remain on as a producer for the next installment in the Trek franchise.

What do you think of Joe Cornish possibly directing Star Trek 3?
