Star Trek XI‘s Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci have signed a new production deal with Universal Pictures.
The deal is a two-year, “first-look” production deal.
“Alex and Roberto are extraordinarily talented writers and producers who know the value of a great story in building successful tentpole films,” said Universal Pictures’ Adam Fogelson and Donna Langley. “They have been a major part of some of Hollywood’s biggest movies and television shows in recent history, and we’re eager to have them build on that success at Universal.”
Amongst the projects to be developed by the duo will be a modern reimagining of The Mummy, and of Van Helsing.
“We’re thrilled to call Universal Pictures our home,” said Kurtzman and Orci. “From the moment we sat down with Adam, Donna, Peter, Jeff and the entire Uni team, there was an instant flow of inspired ideas. They really understand the importance of building a strong creative team and giving our shared projects their full support.”
