Orci Responds To Star Trek 3 Rumors and Speculation December 12, 2014by Brian Drew , Filed under: CBS/Paramount,Feature Films (TMP-NEM),ST: Into Darkness Sequel,Trek Franchise , 541 comments
Ever since news broke last week that Roberto Orci would no longer be directing the next Star Trek film, there has been a great deal of confusion, speculation, and misinformation regarding Orci’s continuing role as well as the future of the feature film franchise. We don’t profess to have all the facts here, but we’re going to try and provide some clarity, using Orci’s comments here at TrekMovie, and elsewhere on Twitter.
REPORT: Orci out as “Trek 3” director December 5, 2014by Brian Drew , Filed under: CBS/Paramount,Orci/Kurtzman,ST: Into Darkness Sequel , comments closed
BREAKING: Deadline Hollywood’s Mike Fleming is reporting that Roberto Orci will no longer be at the helm of the next Star Trek film:
Roberto Orci is beaming off the bridge of the Starship Enterprise on Star Trek 3. Rampant rumors are swirling and I’ve confirmed there is fire behind the smoke that he won’t be directing. I even hear that Edgar Wright and others are on a short list to take the job. Orci stays on the project as producer, I’ve heard.
The film is intended to be Orci’s debut as a film director, as well as his first solo project after parting with long-time writing and producing partner Alex Kurtzman.
This story is very fluid at the moment, and TrekMovie will bring you more details as we get them.
UPDATE: Variety is also reporting that Orci is no longer directing.

Sorry, Netflix & CBS Not in Talks To Produce New Show June 10, 2014by Brian Drew , Filed under: CBS/Paramount,Rumor,Trek on TV , comments closed
A new story is making the rounds claiming that, while at Phoenix Comicon this past weekend, author Larry Nemecek (Star Trek: The Next Generation Companion, Star Trek Stellar Cartography) revealed that Netflix and CBS are “in talks” regarding a new Star Trek series. The story made a big splash, since it’s not so crazy to think that Netflix, who has hit it big with recent original shows Orange is the New Black and House of Cards, would look to Star Trek, one of its top performers in streaming TV, for a new series. In a blog post on his web site, Nemecek refutes the story:
…this non-bylined writer known only as “Starfleet Intelligence” is too wrapped up in tossing around jazzy phrases of TheBizSpeak in this post, and has the situation blown up way too big —though it makes a nice screaming headline…it’s in Netflix’s interest to be casting about for new shows—including those from known franchises. I understand Star Trek is one of them—especially as Trek’s 737 hours of “reruns” performs as a top draw ON Netflix. As I understand it, there have been overtures. But none taken. So far.

UNCONFIRMED RUMOR: Orci talked to CBS about Trek TV Show October 12, 2013by Matt Wright , Filed under: CBS/Paramount,Orci/Kurtzman,Rumor,Star Trek Into Darkness,Trek on TV , comments closed
Putting Star Trek back on TV has been increasingly talked about as of late. Out of nowhere a tweet from reporter Joe Michalczuk who was covering the Ender’s Game press junket for the UK’s Sky News claims Roberto Orci told him he had a meeting with CBS. This is to be considered a totally unconfirmed rumor and should be taken with a large grain of salt. We also do not know who else (aside from Bob) “they” refers to in his tweet:
Bob Orci just told me they’ve had a meeting with CBS to revive @StarTrek on TV…This made me v excited
— Joe Michalczuk (@joemichalczuk) October 8, 2013
Orci has commented here at TrekMovie in the past about his own personal interest in maybe, perhaps, if the stars align, thinking about doing an Abramsverse Star Trek TV show. But it was mostly just personal interest, the issues with CBS and Paramount being separate companies with differing agendas seemed to be a bit of a mess. So we’ll shall see if this gets confirmed in any way. Even if it’s true, don’t count on it being publicly acknowledged, preliminary meetings are just that, preliminary, often times it’s just feeling out the parties involved, in many cases doesn’t go anywhere, or doesn’t happen quickly, so things are kept under wraps until a more concrete agreement is made.Marketing/Promotion,Star Trek Into Darkness , comments closed
