Justin Lin To Direct STAR TREK 3

After weeks of speculation, Justin Lin has been chosen to direct Star Trek 3. Lin, who’s credits include several Fast and the Furious films, will take over Trek 3 following the departure of Roberto Orci from the director’s chair.

While other directors were possibilities for the gig, Deadline is reporting that Lin was the only one who’d actually been offered the film. Due in part by the opening in his schedule, following the Bourne Legacy sequel being pushed back.

As we’ve previously reported, Orci remains a producer on the third Star Trek film in the rebooted franchise.

The first of the series grossed $380 million worldwide in 2009, with the sequel, Star Trek Into Darkness, toppling that amount with more than $460 million worldwide. In comparison, the four Fast and the Furious films helmed by Lin have grossed a total of $1.9 billion worldwide.

Paramount still hopes to release the film sometime in 2016, to coincide with the 50th anniversary of The Original Series.

Stay tuned to TrekNews.net for the latest news related to the next Star Trek film.
