It is official (well at least as official as anything in Hollywood ever is), J.J. Abrams, fresh off X-Men 3 will direct the next StarTrek movie.

Viacom CEO Philippe Dauman said earlier this week that "Lost" and "Alias" creator, and Mission: Impossible III director J.J. Abrams is set to helm Star Trek XI, reports Variety.

Dauman noted that Paramount is targeting a 2008 or 2009 release date for the anticipated film. "We're revitalizing it in a new and interesting way," he said.

Abrams is teaming up with "Lost" creators-writers-producers Damon Lindelof and Bryan Burk on the 11th installment. Burk, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci will executive produce.
