I Like Brad Bird as a replacement, he did extremely well with Mission Impossible. Joe Johnston also, or someone new. Just for giggles.

I'm less worried about JJ Abrams as I am the writers. They can be replaced anytime now....

I liked Tron Legacy so I will suggest Joseph Kosinski. Brian Singer, on the strength of X2. Joe Johnston, no, other than Rocketeer, haven't liked a single thing he's has done. Myer's struck gold with WOK but The Undiscovered Country was like a really bad television episode. But as I said its more about how films are made in general not the individual talent associated with them.

Sorry but Tron Legacy was a real letdown. Pretty, yes, interesting - no. I really did not care about these 'characters' if you can call them that. The best thing about it is the score.

Bryan Singer is a good suggestion, since he is a real Star Trek fan - appeared in Nemesis even.

Star Trek the Undiscovered Country is a far superior film to Tron Legacy. At least I cared about these people. Legacy, I was like, well they are pretty much all digital people, so what is the difference - and Garret Hedlund was so wooden. I really did not care about him. Bridges might have saved the picture if he had more to do but not sitting around his ultra sterile Tron mansion. Yesh

I don't mind Abrams as I've liked the last two Star Trek movies.

Another director to consider is Kathryn Bigelow. She focuses well on
character development and can film action scenes.

mad "Awww, Who Want'sa roll eyes GURL roll eyes on Our Team mad ? Department:

She'd be a thrilling choice, Joan, and every inch just as technologically-savvy
as any of them other boys-with-toys (in another universe, she'd be equally
auspicious behind the Bond baton).

But it'll never happen, and guess why?

Tho here's a thoroughly heretical thought (since, as we once peevishly predicted, this enterprise ain't gonna end till it's a Saturday morning teevee show spotlighting the "StarFleet Kiddies in Galactic Kindergarten" - don't laugh):

why doesn't PARAMINT dump Trek once and for all?

('an, no, we're not Even serious it's ever gonna happen) ...

You know, Neo, we think alike. I really was thinking that Bigelow would be a great Bond director and would be more at home with Bond than Kirk.

In the latter two cases (which seem more probable, but that's just me), what director do you think might do the Star Trek franchise justice?

Anyone who is not the amalgam of Michael Bay and Steven Spielberg.

Someone above mentioned Peter Weir. It's a far cry to never happen, but it's a dream worth having.

P.S. Anyone noticed this odd conundrum: filmgoers who took an instant liking and appreciation to Abrams' first Star Trek felt underwhelmed and pessimistic towards Into Darkness (speaking for myself, here), while those who spat poison towards that risk-taking franchise reboot seem elated by this by-the-numbers, limp sequel (seemingly the most bright posters, who ought to know better).

In Mr. Weir's case, Chockful, 'never' would Never be far enuff or away.

Unlike most - if you look at the scope and span of his films and their subject matter -
we'd wager he wouldn't view it as an 'honor'.

GLAD to say that happens when you're immune to Hollywood's insularly inbred indoctrination. wink
