Not long ago we reported that Fast and Furious director Justin Lin will be taking on the challenge of directing Star Trek 3. There seem to be mixed reactions from fans regarding the choice. Hopefully he has what it takes to deliver another kick-ass movie that we can enjoy.
Variety is now reporting that Paramount Pictures plans to release the film on July 8th, 2016. This will mark the 50th anniversary of the franchise, which launched on NBC September 8th, 1966.
Even though I'm not completely on board with Lin, directing the movie, he's still probably a better choice than Roberto Orci, who has never directed a film. I'm looking forward to seeing what space adventure they tell this time around.
