Deadline reports that Attack the Block director Joe Cornish might be taking on Star Trek 3 now that J.J. Abrams has moved on to Star Wars. Considering he also wrote the Ant-Man screenplay and is allegedly adapting sci-fi thriller Snow Crash, Cornish has the potential to dominate the superhero and sci-fi landscape for the next few years. And then worse comes to worse, he can probably direct Star Wars VIII.
