Attack of the Block director Joe Cornish is reportedly being considered to direct Star Trek 3, replacing J.J. Abrams.
The 44-year-old British filmmaker is believed to be the favourite choice of Paramount and financier Skydance to helm the sci-fi flick, according to Deadline.
J.J. Abrams previously said that his decision not to direct the third instalment of Star Trek was "bittersweet".
Roberto Orci is currently penning the script for Star Trek 3, but no Plot details have been unveiled yet.
Cornish previously co-wrote both The Adventures of Tintin and Ant-Man.
