Amazing Spider-Man 2 Teaser header

This past weekend, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 crossed $200 million in domestic gross. Add in another $500 million across the world, and $700 million seems like a huge success. But fan reactions to the sequel were tepid and it certainly feels like excitement is waining. That’s not good for Sony Pictures, who famously recruited an army of talented writers and directors to shepherd the character in an every expanding, connected world. Two more Amazing Spider-Man films were tentatively scheduled, along with Venom and Sinister Six films. It was an ambitious plan that was definitely less certain after the slightly disappointing reactions to part 2.

Now the plans for The Amazing Spider-Man are even more in flux. Roberto Orci, who was scheduled to co-write The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and Venom, revealed he’s left the franchise and isn’t quite sure what’s happening moving ahead. Read his quote about the future of The Amazing Spider Man franchise and more below. Read More »

Read his comments after the jump.

Orci directing Star Trek 3

So Roberto Orci will direct Star Trek 3. The man who co-wrote the first two new franchise films for J.J. Abrams has been lobbying to take over the director’s chair for the third installment. Despite his lack of feature experience (Orci has never directed a feature) Skydance Productions and Paramount have given him the offer, so it’s all but done. I mean the deal is all but done, not Star Trek. But that might be done now, too. Read More »

Star Trek 3 Roberto Orci

Over the past decade, the name pairing “Kurtzman and Orci” has become a loaded phrase: it connotes blockbuster-sized sci-fi and superhero properties which often make loads of dough, but which aren’t always realized in a manner that fans love. Now Kurtzman and Orci are breaking up their big-screen writing and producing partnership so that each can focus on directing. More important, however, is that Roberto Orci is now working hard to take the director’s chair of Star Trek 3.

Update: Word has hit that Orci has progressed a bit further in the process, and is now in early talks to direct. More below.
