Abrams will direct the highly anticipated Star Trek franchise, which will star Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Zachary Quinto, Leonard Nimoy, Chris Pine, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin, Zoe Saldana, John Cho, Winona Ryder, Bruce Greenwood, Rachel Nichols, Jennifer Morrison, Clifton Collins Jr., Tyler Perry, and Jimmy Bennett.
