    'Attack The Block' Helmer Joe Cornish Is Paramount's Choice To Direct 'Star Trek 3'

    For many, the goodwill from J.J. Abrams' mostly-very-good "Star Trek" reboot dissipated quickly with this summer's sequel, "Star Trek Into Darkness."

    Franchise Compromise Sucks: Neill Blomkamp On Why He Wouldn't Do 'Star Trek' Or Any Other Franchise

    Franchises and "edgy" visions just don't mix. See Darren Aronofsky's takes on "The Wolverine" or "Batman: Year One" (pre-Christopher Nolan takes), Joe Carnahan and "Daredevil," Joss Whedon's "Wonder Woman," etc. Studios are generally looking for something within the comfort zone of a property.
