Justin Lin Will Direct Star Trek 3

Rosanna Wong

I guess that infinite diversity in infinite combinations thing is finally starting to apply to Star Trek directors. Multiple Fast/Furious franchise installment helmer Justin Lin is being entrusted with an even bigger one.

I’m honestly mixed on his F&F stuff – I like parts 4 and 6, but not 3 and 5…Waitaminute! That’s like the Star Trek rule! [prior to Abrams, anyway]Seriously, I just figured that out as I was typing. Anyway, he managed to create genuine ensemble chemistry in movies that are openly dumb and mostly about cars falling off things; come to think of it, Better Luck Tomorrow and Finishing the Game also featured great ensemble work with multiple distinct characters. I think he might just do a good job.
