British writer-director Joe Cornish is reportedly Paramount's pick to direct Star Trek 3 now that J.J. Abrams is firmly entrenched in helming Star Wars: Episode VII.

While Deadline claims it's "early days on this," Cornish -- the director of the low-budget sci-fi flick Attack the Block -- is the one Paramount and financier Skydance Productions want to direct Trek 3, which is slated to begin filming summer 2014.

Many of you may know Cornish as the writing partner of Edgar Wright on The Adventures of Tintin and Marvel's Ant-Man, which Wright will direct.

Cornish's name first surfaced as a Trek 3 candidate this past summer. Cornish recently dropped out of directing the graphic novel adaptation Rust, is attached to the sci-fi film Snow Crash, and had been a contender to replace Gary Ross as director of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
