The dudes over at Latino Review are reporting that Jon M. Chu, the man behind “G.I. Retaliation,” is a “contender” to direct the third installment in the “Star Trek” films for a 2016 release. This is all well and good, except for the fact that he’s committed right now to some other big franchises. Most notably, it was just under a couple of months ago that Paramount tagged him to helm “G.I. Joe 3”— which we presume is a series they don’t want sitting around too long— while he’s also got “Masters Of The Universe” brewing at Sony. So we’d reckon he’s a guy they like a lot at the moment, though figuring out if he can fit in or even if he’s interested remains to be seen.
OH. MY. WORD! NO!
NO NO NO!
Retaliation was TERRIBLE. I don’t want him anywhere NEAR my beloved Star Trek. I think I’m going to be ill…
