Yesterday we heard the rumor that John M. Chu, director of 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' was one of the names being considered for the vacated 'Star Trek 3' captain's chair. That rumor was quickly shot down, but now a new name has risen to the forefront of the conversation: 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes' helmer Rupert Wyatt. But how close is this to actually happening?

Though J.J. Abrams won't be around to pilot the next episode of the 'Star Trek' franchise as he'll be too busy with 'Star Wars: Episode 7' (he'll just be producing), Paramount seems to want to keep some consistency and has hired Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman to pen 'Star Trek 3.'

Ever since J.J. Abrams signed on to direct 'Star Wars: Episode 7,' it's been unclear whether he'd be available to return to the directing chair for 'Star Trek 3.' With Paramount angling for a 2016 release, and Disney pushing to get 'Episode 7' in theaters in 2015, there's no way Abrams could do both. But it looks like Paramount is looking at a replacement, and Jon M. Chu is supposedly at the top of their list.

As expected, things have been awfully quiet on the 'Star Wars: Episode 7' front, with rumors and vague suggestions trickling out while few pieces of legit information remains behind lock and key (with Disney's army of lawyers standing guard). However, could this be because the movie is in peril?
Talk has been turning more and more to the possibility of director J.J. Abrams dropping out of the project entirely. (Say it ain't so!)

Paramount is looking to move full steam ahead on 'Star Trek 3,' and according to Spock himself, the film will begin shooting next year. That seems like a rather quick turnaround, but if the film wants to meet its own 2016 release deadline, they better get moving -- and fast. But will J.J. Abrams be back in the director's chair?

As you may have heard, 'Star Trek' director J.J. Abrams has some different stars in sight for his next project; the man is the chosen one for 'Star Wars: Episode 7.' There have been conflicting reports regarding his involvement in the inevitable 'Star Trek 3,' but, regardless, do you want J.J. to return for a third film, or should someone else take over?

The cash registers just stopped ringing for ‘Star Trek Into Darkness,’ which raked in an estimated $84 million over the 4-day weekend and an additional $80M internationally since opening on May 9. And, of course, talk has already turned to 'Star Trek 3.'
The effort at rebooting the Star Trek brand for a new generation has been a success and even though J.J. Abrams is departing this particular universe to play in Lucasfilm’s sandbox, that doesn’t mean the Trek franchise will crumble without him. Quite the opposite.
Plans already are underway for the third installment in this rebooted Trek franchise and as a handy guide, here’s everything we know about the as-yet-untitled ‘Star Trek 3.’

We barely know who the 'Star Trek Into Darkness' villain is (OK, well we pretty much know) - is it possible that at this early stage we've already got a pretty solid idea as to who the 'Star Trek 3' villain will be? Writer/producer Damon Lindelof spoke on the film's red carpet and dropped some information as to who will be facing off against in 'Star Trek 3.'

J.J. Abrams gave his first extensive interview on 'Star Wars: Episode 7' to Playboy and spoke at length about the challenges of being in control of 'Star Wars' and 'Star Trek' - two of the biggest sci-fi franchises in history. He talks about how he'll be collaborating with George Lucas, his feeling on the prequels and how you shouldn't assume he won't direct 'Star Trek 3.'

'Star Trek 3' Hitting in 2016?

'Star Trek 3' has been the topic of discussion for a lot of Trekkies, especially now with J.J. Abrams moving over to direct the upcoming 'Star Wars: Episode 7' movie and a certain Enterprise actor or two who said they'd be disappointed if he decides to not return for a third film. With or without Abrams, however, (and it'll probably be with, if only on a production basis) is Paramount already prepping 'Star Trek 3' for 2016?
