Justin Lin takes the director’s chair for Star Trek 3
by Doc on Dec.22, 2014, under Movies
After the abrupt departure of Roberto Orci as heir-apparent of the Star Trek franchise, the Enterprise has a new skipper at the helm in the form of Justin Lin, who revived the Fast & Furious franchise and directed four of the films.
Lin was in line to direct the next Bourne Legacy installment, but that was temporarily shelved in favor of a returning Matt Damon and another Bourne Identity film, opening up Lin’s schedule.
I only hope that he doesn’t end up continuing the high-speed improbable action sequences…I want a return to thought-provoking Trek.
