“Star Trek 3” to be Directed by Roberto Orci

A lot of rumors and speculations are circulating in the media that Roberto Orci is going to direct “Star Trek 3.” But now sources confirmed that Skydance and Paramount have indeed tapped Orci to direct Paramount and Skydance’s “Star Trek 3.”

Roberto Orci will become director in place of J.J. Abrams who is currently busy filming “Star Wars: Episode VII”. Orci is said to be working with J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay on the story of “Star Trek 3” these days. 

This will be the first solo project of Roberto Orci as director. Previously, Orci and his friend Alex Kurtzman worked together. They remained longtime writing partners and also launched a TV production company.

Recently, both Orci and Kurtzman decided to work separately on their future projects. Sources had told Variety that both "were looking to direct more pics and that going solo would be in the best interest of both parties." However, they will remain partners for the sake of their TV production company.

Meanwhile, the plot of “Star Trek 3” remains unknown. However, Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto are expected to return in the cast of this film. J.J. Abrams, Bryan Burke and Skydance’s David Ellison will produce the movie.

Both Paramount and Skydance have not yet commented on the news regarding making Roberto Orci the director of “Star Trek 3.”

Despite the fact that Mighty Morphin Power Rangers was a thing that some people liked when they were kids, the colorful team of monster-fighting teenagers hasn’t desperately grabbed for anyone’s nostalgia-filled wallet yet.
