He's not in talks anymore...
While he was in talks at one point, Attack the Block director Joe Cornish will not be at the helm for the next Star Trek. Cornish, who also co-wrote Ant-Man, had been rumored to be taking on the directing job but according to Variety, he is "no longer involved."
The news comes days after it was announced that Roberto Orci, J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay have been brought on to write the film. Orci co-wrote the two J.J. Abrams-directed Trek films as well.
The film is aiming for a 2016 release in time for the franchise's fiftieth anniversary.
