Speaking to HitFix, J.J. Abrams who will be producing Star Trek 3, addressed rumours that Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes director Robert Wyatt is being courted to direct the film.

“He’s incredibly talented, and we’d be lucky to have someone as talented as Rupert. But there are things we’re focusing on right now before the director, which is just sort of the fundamentals of where the story is gonna go.”

“It’s too early to talk about details,” Abrams continues, “but there have been a lot of really exciting ideas about what comes next.”
