BREAKING: Variety is reporting that Roberto Orci, co-screenwriter and producer of the previous two Star Trek films, has been tapped to direct the third film in the rebooted franchise.
When approached by Variety to confirm, Paramount, Skydance Productions, and Orci’s representatives had no comment.
Orci, who will be making his directorial debut, is collaborating with newcomers J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay on the screenplay. He had been lobbying to land the directing assignment, and needed to convince Paramount and it’s producing partner, Skydance Productions, that he could handle the demands of directing a major Hollywood blockbuster.
No details about the film are known, but the entire cast is expected to return. J.J. Abrams and Bryan Burke will produce along with Skydance’s David Ellison.
Roberto Orci in talks to direct “Star Trek 3″ May 9, 2014by Brian Drew , Filed under: Orci/Kurtzman,ST: Into Darkness Sequel , comments closed
Deadline Hollywood‘s Mike Fleming is reporting that Roberto Orci, co-screenwriter and producer of the previous two Trek films, has emerged as the frontrunner to direct the third feature and is currently in talks with Paramount and their producing partner, Skydance Productions.
According to Fleming, Orci has mounted “an aggressive lobbying campaign” to land the job, and should he get it,
…this would amount to another first-time director taking on a massive project, which has been hit (Snow White And The Huntsman) and miss (Transcendence, John Carter, 47 Ronin). Orci could be an exception on the positive side of the ledger because he has been involved for so long as writer and producer in shaping such big scale films as the Star Trek films as well as theTransformers and Amazing Spider-Man movies. I’m told that Paramount’s partner, Skydance Productions, has been in Orci’s corner, but Paramount needed convincing. Now it all could happen at warp speed.
