With Roberto Orci departing Star Trek 3, five possible contenders to direct have become known.
According to Deadline, Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes), Morten Tyldum, Daniel Espinosa, Justin Lin (Fast & Furious) and Duncan Jones (Warcraft) are all said to be possibilities to direct.
It was previously stated that Edgar Wright was also a possibility, but the new report gives an update in that Wright looks to not be part of the mix.
Jonathan Frakes of ST:TNG has also expressed interest in directing.
Roberto Orci is still involved with Star Trek as a producer on the new film and helped write the story.
