Justin Lin will direct the third instalment of the Star Trek movies featuring Chris Pine as Kirk. The news was confirmed on Monday. J.J. Abrams jumped runabout to move from Star Trek to Star Wars after directing the first two.
Robert Orci was originally pencilled in but stepped down. He will still be on board as writer and producer.
Lin's previous work includes Fast & Furious 6 which made a staggering $788 million!
The film is set for a 2016 release.
