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.

Last week, countless 'Star Trek' aficionados from all over the world descended on Las Vegas for the massive Star Trek Las Vegas convention. Although much of the event focused on good-natured geekery, there was some pretty serious fanboy work to be done. Namely, one panel set out to rank all of the 'Star Trek' movies, forever ending any and all debate on the matter (not really). Most of the final order isn't too surprising, but the assembled fans made one thing very clear: they really, really hate 'Star Trek Into Darkness.'

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!)

Many 'Star Trek' fans felt personally betrayed when director J.J. Abrams ditched the series and jumped ship to 'Star Wars: Episode 7.' After all, the two iconic science fiction franchises have been embroiled in a silly war among fans for decades now -- either you're in one camp or the other, it seems. But how would Trekkies feel if Mr. Spock himself, Leonard Nimoy, took a journey to the 'Star Wars' universe?
