Though 'Star Trek Into Darkness' producer/director J.J. Abrams has his attentions elsewhere, 'Star Trek 3' is moving forward, with Joe Cornish the most recent director rumored to take Abrams' place. Now it appears the writer's room has had a bit of a shake-up as J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay have joined the film, while Alex Kurtzman has jumped off the project.

With J.J. Abrams switching teams from 'Star Trek' to 'Star Wars,' the director's chair for 'Star Trek 3' is still vacant. Though Joe Cornish of 'Attack of the Block' is being eyed to fill the void, whomever lands the job will most likely have a smaller window budget-wise through which to steer the Enterprise into a third installment.

With J.J. Abrams hard at work on 'Star Wars: Episode VII' to meet a December 2015 release deadline, someone has to step up and direct 'Star Trek 3.' Plenty of names have been tossed about as potential replacements, and now we can add a new one to the running: 'Attack the Block' director Joe Cornish, which might be the best possible choice we've heard so far.

J.J. Abrams Thinks 'Apes' Director Rupert Wyatt Would Be Perfect For 'Star Trek 3'

Last month, we first heard the rumor that 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes' director Rupert Wyatt was being considered to direct 'Star Trek 3.' And then ... silence. Unlike the quickly shot-down Jon M. Chu rumors, this one was allowed to linger, lending the news a bit more credibility. Now, former 'Star Trek' director (and current 'Star Wars: Episode 7' director) J.J. Abrams has been asked about Wyatt's involvement and the response is typical Abrams.

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?

'Star Trek 3' Hires Screenwriters Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman (Again)

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.'

'Star Trek 3' Rumor: 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' Director Jon M. Chu Eyed to Helm

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.

Is 'Star Wars: Episode 7' Losing J.J. Abrams as 'Star Trek 3' Moves Ahead? [UPDATE]

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?
