Star Trek 3 has new director

Citizens throughout the Federation are rejoicing as Justin Lin takes the helm of the Star Trek franchise

It appears that citizens throughout the Federation are rejoicing with the news that the much talked about helm of the Star Trek franchise has indeed signed on a new director to take the Starship Enterprise and her intrepid crew to new heights with the upcoming Star Trek 3.

JJ Abrams, Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions have tapped Justin Lin to replace Roberto Orci, who co-wrote the reimagined Star Trek series, along with Abrams, who is now directing the highly anticipated and upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Fast and Furious 6

The now intergalactic director is best known for directing three of the Fast and Furious films, and also currently works on the Scorpion television series. While Orci will remain tied to the next installment of the soon to be 50 year old Star Trek franchise as a producer, the powers that be are surely looking for a repeat of Lin’s box office success with the Fast and Furious to surpass Star Trek Into Darkness, which grossed more than $460 million worldwide after opening in May 2013.

      Agreed. Hurts my eyes. Think they should also relocate Engineering from a brewery to a navada based brothel and change the theme music to the old theme music from the 70s tv show Vegas. Oh and before you ask. I’m joking.
