Justin Lin To Boldly Go And Direct Star Trek 3
Fast & Furious 6 filmmaker reportedly replacing Roberto Orci...
Justin Lin has reportedly been confirmed to take over as director of Star Trek 3.
The site reports that several top directors were in contention for the job - although it was apparently only offered to Lin.
The first two movies in the rebooted Star Trek franchise were directed by JJ Abrams - but he has now departed to direct Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Lin is reported to be starting work on Star Trek 3 as soon as he has finished his directing duties on the second series of HBO's True Detective.
He is reported to have become available after a planned Bourne Legacy sequel with Jeremy Renner was put on ice - because Matt Damon is returning to star in that franchise.
