Attack the Block director Joe Cornish is reportedly one of the top contenders to take over for J.J. Abrams on Star Trek 3. Take a look at these tweets from Latino Review's El Mayimbe, then read on for more about the sequel.

Joe Cornish may direct Star Trek 3
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.

Joe Cornish made his feature directorial debut with Attack the Block. He also co-wrote the screenplay for The Adventures of Tintin, and is working on the Ant-Man script with director Edgar Wright.

Nothing official has been announced for Star Trek 3 at this time, so stay tuned.
