Rumor Mill: Orci Trek Director TalksPosted by T'Bonz - 09/05/14 at 11:05 am
Word has emerged today that Star Trek into Darkness‘ Roberto Orci is in talks to direct the next Star Trek movie.
Orci has not directed a movie before, but has written and produced movies.
According to Deadline, Paramount “needed convincing,” although their partner, Skydance Productions, was “in Orci’s corner.” Orci has supposedly emerged as the “clear frontrunner” to direct Star Trek 3.
Earlier this year, Orci and longtime work partner Alex Kurtzman went their separate ways when it came to movies, although the duo continues to work on television projects together.
