Duncan Jones rules out directing Star Trek 3

6 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier this week it was reported that Paramount had identified a shortlist of directors to replace Roberto Orci on Star Trek 3, with Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes),  Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game), Daniel Espinosa (Safe House), Justin Lin (Fast & Furious 6) and Duncan Jones (Source Code) all said to be in contention.

Well, we can now scratch one of those names from the list, with Duncan Jones – who is currently putting the finishing touches to his Warcraft movie – ruling himself out of the running for the job, stating on Twitter that:

Very flattering being on short list for Star Trek, but won’t be doing it. Absolutely Must make my own thing next, or I’ll die of old age!

Duncan Jones (@ManMadeMoon) December 15, 2014

So, who would you like to see taking the helm of the U.S.S. Enterprise’s next big screen outing? »

'Star Trek 3' to Be More Like 'Guardians of the Galaxy'?

16 December 2014 1:51 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Paramount Pictures is still moving forward with Star Trek 3, despite parting ways with director Roberto Orci earlier this month. No reason was given for the departure, but the filmmaker revealed last week that he is still involved with the sequel as they search for a new director. A new report from Badass Digest reveals that Roberto Orci may have parted ways with Paramount because the studio wanted to make the sequel more like Marvel's current box office hit Guardians of the Galaxy.

The site reports that there are two different stories floating around about Roberto Orci's last days on Star Trek 3, one is that he quit because he refused to address the studio's notes on the script, which was also dumped, and the other is that Paramount actually pulled the plug on the project a month ago, engaging in talks with other filmmakers before officially announcing that Roberto Orci has stepped away. »

Paramount Wants Star Trek 3 to be like Guardians Of The Galaxy

16 December 2014 9:49 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Yesterday we learned that Paramount Pictures is looking to hire one of these five directors to direct Star Trek 3Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes), Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game), Daniel Espinosa (Safe House), Justin Lin (Fast & Furious), and Duncan Jones (MoonWarcraft).

Out of those directors I'd love to see Jones take on the project, but he's probably going to be busy developing Warcraft. Wyatt is the next best choice, and perhaps he's the studio's favorite as he just made The Gambler with Mark Wahlberg for them. Thanks to Badass Digest, we have some information on why the previously attached director, Roberto Orci, is no longer attached. One of those reasons was because the studio wanted Star Trek 3 to be more like Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, and Orci wasn't on board with the idea so he walked.

Star Trek 3: new director shortlist appears

15 December 2014 11:08 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

There's no Edgar Wright, but there are some interesting names on the list of potential directors for the next Star Trek film.

Paramount appears to be moving quickly to firm up just who will be directing the next Star Trek film. A week or two back, it was revealed that Roberto Orci - for reasons thus far unknown - wouldn't be taking the job on after all. Since then, it's been rumoured that Edgar Wright was the favourite to do so instead.

But maybe not. Over at Deadline, it's put together what it believes to be the current shortlist of candidates, and Edgar Wright's name is nowhere to be seen.

Instead? Rupert Wyatt (Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes), Justin Lin (lots of Fast & Furious films), Daniel Espinosa (Safe House) and Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game) are reportedly been considered. Deadline has also suggested that Moon and Source Code »

List of 5 Directors up for Star Trek 3 Includes Duncan Jones

15 December 2014 9:54 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Since Roberto Orci stepped away from the director's chair for Star Trek 3, we've heard a rumor that Edgar Wright was wanted for the job. Then Star Trek: First Contact director Jonathan Frakes threw his name into the hat hoping to get the job. Now we have a list of five directors that are currently in the running to take on the challenge. Those directors include: Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes), Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game), Daniel Espinosa (Safe House), Justin Lin (Fast & Furious), and Duncan Jones (MoonWarcraft).

Out of this current list, which comes from Deadline, my favorite choice is Duncan Jones. I think he's the most talented of the bunch, and could really bring something new, fun, and unique to the franchise that none of those other directors could bring. My second choice would be Wyatt, because he did do a great job »

Paramount identifies director shortlist for Star Trek 3

15 December 2014 9:48 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It seems that Paramount Pictures has wasted little time in the search for a new director on Star Trek 3 following Roberto Orci’s decision to step down from the helm, and despite the best efforts of a fan campaign to #BringRikerIn, Jonathan Frakes is absent from the shortlist…

According to Deadline, the studio has already met with Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes), although Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game), Daniel Espinosa (Safe House), Justin Lin (Fast & Furious 6) and Duncan Jones (Source Code) are all on Paramount’s shortlist. Initially, it was also though that Edgar Wright (The World’s End) was in contention, although he’s absent from this latest list.

Who would you like to see directing Star Trek 3 from those names above? Let us know your thoughts…

Star Trek 3 director search: Duncan Jones denies involvement

15 December 2014 9:32 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Duncan Jones has denied that he is in talks to helm Star Trek 3, amidst reports that Jj Abrams and Paramount Pictures have reportedly narrowed their director search.

Abrams previously handed over to the director's chair to Star Trek Into Darkness writer Roberto Orci, but it was reported last week that Orci would not, in fact, take over the movie.

Edgar Wright was tipped as an early candidate following his own departure from Marvel's Ant-Man, with Deadline now reporting that several other directors are being considered as well.

Moon director Jones was mentioned as a contender in the outlet's report, but he has refuted any involvement with the project on Twitter.

"Very flattering being on short list for Star Trek, but won't be doing it. Absolutely Must make my own thing next, or I'll die of old age," he wrote.

'Star Trek 3' Director Shortlist Includes Rupert Wyatt, Duncan Jones, and Morten Tyldum

15 December 2014 9:27 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I really want a good Star Trek movie. So far, this rebooted, J.J. Abrams helmed version of the Enterprise has done next to nothing for me. Star Trek Into Darkness was particularly disheartening. However, these movies have been making decent money, so this is the direction we will continue to go. Because Abrams is off waking up the force (which really does not like someone waking it up; it's quite cranky), a new director is needed to take over. For awhile, screenwriter Roberto Orci was going to make his directorial debut with Star Trek 3, but he recently dropped out of the project, just staying on as a producer. Deadline is reporting Paramount has a shortlist of five directors they are looking at. On the top of the list is Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes), with Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game), Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code »

Star Trek 3 Director Shortlist Down to Five; Apes Director Rupert Wyatt Considered the Frontrunner

15 December 2014 9:10 AM, PST | | See recent news »

A couple weeks ago, we got the joyous news that Roberto Orci would not be directing Star Trek 3.  Although Edgar Wright's name was floated as a possible replacement, five other choices have emerged with Rise of the Planet of the Apes director Rupert Wyatt as the frontrunner.  Paramount is apparently high on Wyatt for the gig, and he's met with the studio.  But Deadline reports there are four other directors who might be steering the Starship Enterprise to its new destination. Hit the jump for more on Paramount's candidates for their Star Trek 3 director.  Paramount is aiming to release the film in 2016, which would mark the series 50th anniversary. [Update: One of the directors has taken himself out of the running.  More after the jump.] According to Deadline, Paramount is also considering Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game), Daniel Espinosa (Safe House), Justin Lin (Fast & Furious 3 – 6), and Duncan Jones (Source Code). Breaking down the choices, Tyldum could become a very hot director depending on »

Rupert Wyatt, Justin Lin And More In Talks To Helm Star Trek 3

15 December 2014 9:02 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One of the most pressing questions that arose when Disney confirmed that J.J. Abrams was on board to direct Star Wars: The Force Awakens was the future of Paramount PicturesStar Trek franchise. In particular, fans were understandably apprehensive as to who will helm the upcoming Star Trek 3 in Abrams’ steed, and the studio quickly turned to long-time writer Robert Orci to take up the directing mantle.

However, in a surprising turn of events, we learned recently that Orci had exited the threequel, stepping down from director to produce alongside Abrams. And it seems Paramount has wasted no time in finding a replacement, as Deadline is reporting that both the studio and Abrams have whittled down their search to five key candidates: Justin Lin, Morten Tyldum, Daniel Espinosa, Duncan Jones, and Planet of the Apes helmer Rupert Wyatt.

It’s a promising line-up, no doubt, but there are »

15 December 2014 7:59 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fast & Furious director Justin Lin, who became available after The Bourne Legacy sequel with Jeremy Renner was pushed back to make way for Matt Damon's return.

"Star Trek 3" Director Shortlist Down To Four

15 December 2014 7:00 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

A shortlist of top directors to replace Roberto Orci at the helm of the third "Star Trek" feature has emerged over at Deadline and the choices are quite high-profile.

The four are Rupert Wyatt ("Rise of the Planet of the Apes"), Morten Tyldum ("The Imitation Game"), Justin Lin ("Fast Five") and Daniel Espinosa ("Safe House"). Wyatt, whose mose recent film "The Gambler" is about to hit cinemas, is reportedly at the top of the list and has apparently had a meeting already.

Scheduling is where issues lie. Espinosa is slated to helm "Boston Strong" next, Lin on the other hand has had his "Bourne" sequel pushed back so that could leave room for him to take on 'Trek'. Wyatt and Tydlum are still in early development of their next projects.

Duncan Jones ("Source Code") was also rumored in the original report but the filmmaker has quickly shot that down on his Twitter feed. »

Nonso Anozie Trades Game Of Thrones For Zoo

27 November 2014 2:07 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Game Of Thrones actor Nonso Anozie has moved from his portrayal of Xaro Ahoan Daxos on the hit show, to a recurring role in the CBS adaptation of James Patterson’s novel, Zoo. The stand-alone book, co-written with Michael Ledwidge, was published in 2012 to positive reviews – many of which cited the perceived plausibility of the plot.

The earth-bound science fiction story centres on scientist Jackson Oz, who is systematically dismissed by his colleagues in the fields of ecology and biology after focusing years of research on animals attacking humans. Believing there to be an increasing pattern, Oz travels to Botswana, where he manages to survive a large-scale lion attack. Teaming with fellow survivor, and former diplomat, Chloe Tousignant, he works to uncover why the animal world has begun what is seemingly a united effort to remove humans from the ecosystem completely.

Director's Chair: New Projects for Mel Gibson, Jason Reitman, and Brad Anderson

20 November 2014 2:06 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Jason Reitman is in desperate need of a career bump. His last two films, Labor Day and Men, Women, and Children, felt like they were made my someone who did not know why he was making them. This is shame coming from the guy who made Up in the Air, which I rewatched recently and is still vibrant and specific. Thankfully, Reitman will be stepping back into dramedy territory with I Would Only Rob Banks for My Family, based on a rather unusual Texas Monthly article. The story follows a Texas family who pull off two rather impressive bank heists. Nick Hornby (An Education, Wild) will come on to pen the screenplay. Jason's poppa Ivan Reitman will produce the film. The two have not worked together since Up in the Air, so hopefully, they can create that same magic once again with this film. Reitman is in need of some quality. »

Directors: Zach Braff Is 'Going In Style,' Daniel Espinosa Chasing The Boston Marathon & More

19 November 2014 11:57 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Somehow, the sloppily assembled, unfunny "Let's Be Cops" earned over $120 million worldwide (Wtf), and since money talks in Hollywood, that means director Luke Greenfield gets to level up. And so he shall, setting up the movie "Slingshot," which is said to be in the spirit of "E.T." and "Back To The Future." No other plot details are available just yet, but let's just hope a little more craft is put into that effort. [Deadline] Daniel Espinosa ("Safe House," "Snabba Cash") has been tapped to direct "Boston Strong." The project was once set to star Casey Affleck, who has since dropped out of the movie that "follows the massive manhunt to apprehend the two men believed to be responsible for the bombings, as well as examining the city’s reaction following the events." “The Fighter” writers Eric Johnson and Paul Tamasy penned the script, but no word yet on when production might begin. »

Daniel Espinosa In Talks To Direct Boston Strong As Casey Affleck Departs Marathon Bombing Drama

19 November 2014 7:18 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

How soon is too soon? 20th Century Fox is already developing Casey Sherman and Dave Wedge’s still-unpublished Boston Strong, about the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings, into a feature film, and now we’re hearing that the project is close to gaining a helmer – Daniel Espinosa (Safe House) is in talks to direct. It’s not all good news for the film, however, seeing as the previously attached Casey Affleck has reportedly dropped out.

Espinosa, who is currently putting the finishing touches on Soviet Union-set period thriller Child 44, has been extremely in demand since directing Ryan Reynolds and Denzel Washington in the aforementioned 2012 action-thriller. His name has also recently come up in association with the Jo Nesbo adaptation Blood on Snow and John Grisham pic The Racketeer, though he’s not officially attached to either project.

As for Affleck, the star became attached to star and produce in October, but »

Boston Marathon Bombing Film Scribes Say It’s Not Too Soon For Heroic Tale Of Historic City’s Fight Against Terror

18 November 2014 2:51 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Paul Tamasy and Eric Johnson, the scribes behind the Boston-based hero tale The Fighter and the currently shooting The Finest Hours, tell me after their newly minted CAA reps sold to Fox their feature script Boston Strong that director Daniel Espinosa plans to have his cameras filming at the Boston Marathon next April. That is the site of the infamous 2013 bombing that killed three and injured 264 others. The film will chronicle the heroic efforts of a city which rallied from an unimaginable tragedy to trap the perpetrators after a manhunt, killing one in a shootout and gravely injuring another and finding him after the city was cordoned off.

Most stories about heroic acts in tragedies are told when some time has passed, usually way more than two years. The script by the writers that Disney is now shooting, The Finest Hours, took place in 1952, when the Coast Guard made a »
