Robert Orci In Talks To Direct Next Star Trek Movie
Robert Orci, the co screenwriter on J.J Abrams’ first two Star Trek movies is currently in talks to direct the third chapter in the rebooted franchise.
If a deal is eventually made, this would be Orci’s directorial debut.
Orci scripted the first two Trek adventures with Alex Kurtzman, his former writing partner, and Damon Lindeloff.
Abrams just doesn’t have time to direct the third outing. He’s way too busy working on Star Wars: Episode V11, which he will direct. Instead, the filmmaker will be serving as producer when the USS Enterprise embarks on its next voyage “to seek out new life and new civilizations.”
Together with Kurtzman, Orci has written heavy duty titles such as the Transformers pics, Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Cowboys and Aliens.
