I'm NOT saying Joe Cornish is the guy, but what I am saying is the he is definitely one of NUMEROUS contenders.— elmayimbe (@elmayimbe) May 23, 2013
Star Trek Into Darkness director J.J. Abrams revealed last month that he may still direct Star Trek 3, but that may not happen for a long time, since he is currently working on Star Wars: Episode VII, which is slated for release in 2015. Writer Damon Lindelof revealed earlier this month that Star Trek 3 may center on the Klingons, and that the villainous John Harrison (Benedict Cumberbatch) may be back as well.
Nothing official has been announced for Star Trek 3 at this time, so stay tuned.
