It seems that the third installation in the rebooted Star Trek film franchise has hit a bit of a snag. The rebooted series lost its original director, J.J. Abrams, when he traded the Enterprise for the Millenium Falcon, and now the film’s new director, Roberto Orci, has jumped ship as well. So with an open director’s chair, rumors are circulating over who could take over the popular franchise. Here’s who we think could fill Abrams' lense-flared shoes.

Star Trek
Edgar Wright
Wright is heavily rumored to be on the top of the list of those being considered. Wright already has a love and respect for Star Trek and the sci-fi genre as a whole, and he’s proven he can take on unique, creative stories with films like Shaun of the Dead and Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. Even better? If Wright directed Star Trek 3 it would reunite him with Simon Pegg, which would be awesome.
