Over the last couple of weeks, speculation has been rife on who exactly will direct the 3 installment in the latest Star Trek franchise, with it now confirmed that the Fast and Furious director  Justin Lin will take to the directors chair.

Justin Lin! Lin was set to direct the follow-up to The Bourne Legacy, however that was pushed back due to Paul Greengrass and Matt Damon’s renewed interest in the series.

He replaces Roberto Orci, who was initially set to helm the film before stepping down as director earlier this month. That move forced Paramount into a time-sensitive search to find a replacement if they were to meet the 2016 release date.

The shortlist for director of the scifi movie included Edgar Wright, Rupert Wyatt and Daniel Espinosa, with Justin Lin JJ Abram first choice.

With Justin Lin so firmly set on the action sequences of a movie, we are sure he will do wonders with Star Trek 3.

Star Trek 3 is set to be released on July 8th 2016.
