Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are in negotiations to write for the third rebooted Star Trek movie.
Paramount had been looking for other writers, and some of the possibilities mentioned were Ashley Edward Miller and Zachary Stentz.
One writer who will probably not be returning is Damon Lindelof, according to unnamed sources.
J.J. Abrams is also in negotiations to produce Star Trek 3. He will probably not be directing the movie. One rumor had G.I. Joe: Retaliation‘s Jon M. Chu as the top candidate for the director’s chair, which was denied. Another report claims that an “industry source” names Rupert Wyatt (The Rise of the Planet of the Apes) as a “lock at this stage of the game.”
