A big rumor has been circling the ‘net that Jon M. Chu (Step-Up 2&3, G.I. Joe: Retaliation) is the current top contender to sit in the directorial captain’s chair for Star Trek 3. While this bit of information has rightfully been met with groans from most, we here at Cinematallica warn you to not get too upset just yet. According to an industry source, Chu’s name might be on the list, but he is NOT Paramount’s #1 choice to replace J.J. Abrams as the rebooted series’ helmsman. So why all the hubbub? While our source couldn’t confirm one way or another, it seems entirely likely that Jon’s name has been leaked as a prospective choice in order to coax their actual primo draft pick into finally signing a contract. So who’s the real golden boy?
