With the departure of Roberto Orci as the director of Star Trek 3, new names have been put forth as possible candidates for the job.
Five different people are supposedly on the short list to direct the movie.
The potential directors include: Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes), Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game), Daniel Espinosa (Safe House), Justin Lin (Fast & Furious), and Duncan Jones (Source Code).
Jones, however, has said that he won’t be doing Star Trek 3. “Very flattering being on short list for Star Trek,” he said via his Twitter account, “but won’t be doing it. Absolutely must make my own thing next, or I’ll die of old age!”
Star Trek 3 is due out in 2016, and filming is expected to begin next year.
