With all the hoopla over J.J. Abrams taking over the Star Wars franchise, I wonder what will become of the rebooted Star Trek universe that he began. Finally some names are emerging as candidates for the director's chair in the next installment. The latest I have heard is Joe Cornish (Attack The Block), but others such as Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) have been mentioned as well. Whoever takes over, I hope there won't be as long a wait for the third movie as there was between the first and second. I also hope they stake out their own territory, rather than try to pay too much homage to a previous film or episode, something that really hampered my enjoyment of Star Trek Into Darkness.
