S.J. Clarkson is the director. She'll be the first female director of the film franchise. Seeing a lot of goodies in her IMDB. Dexter, Jessica Jones, Defenders, House... Trek TV of course, Roxanne Dawson did a crapload of Voyagers and Enterprises. The Google headlines act like there's never been female Trek directors EVER. Simon Pegg revealed it, so it looks like we're getting the JJ-verse cast again.
