Kurtzman and Orci

We don’t know who’ll be piloting the starship Enterprise now that J.J. Abrams is working on Star Wars, but two major crew members will remain the same. Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, who wrote the 2009 original and co-wrote the 2013 sequel, will return to pen Star Trek 3, possibly for a 2016 release date. Read More »

Jon M Chu

With J.J. Abrams in a galaxy far, far away, the final frontier is wide open. After the success of this year’s Star Trek Into Darkness, Paramount is getting ready to prep a third Star Trek film and the hunt for a new director is underway. The studio has yet to make a decision, but Latino Review is reporting the frontrunner is Jon M. Chu, the director of G.I. Joe: Retaliation.

Update: The director’s reps deny that Chu is connected to the film. Via email, they said “No one has contacted Jon or his reps about this project.” Now, Paramount could still be interested in him, but that may be all it is right now. Other rumors paint Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) as the next likely choice.

Rumors and speculation continue to swirl about what’s going on in both “Star” universes. On the Star Trek side, Badass Digest is reporting Bad Robot could go out to Ashley Edward Miller and Zack Stentz for help on the script for Star Trek 3. They’re the team who had a hand in writing Thor, X-Men: First Class and Fringe. If it happens, they’d work closely with the co-writers and producers of the first two films, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci.

That, of course, begs the question of who is going to direct? J.J. Abrams is well into pre-production for Star Wars Episode VII, which means he’d be unavailable, but now rumors have begun to rise that he’s considering leaving that project. Read More »

Star Trek Into Darkness - Pine, Quinto, Abrams 1

J.J. Abrams‘ decision to take the Star Wars Episode VII helming gig seemed to leave Paramount’s Star Trek franchise with a pretty significant gap. Someone has to direct Star Trek 3, after all, and with Abrams off exploring the further adventures of Luke, Han, and Leia, it didn’t seem like he’d have much time left over for Kirk and Spock.

Still, the director’s been reluctant to totally rule out the possibility of returning for Star Trek 3. And if Trek star Zachary Quinto‘s latest comments are be to be believed, that may be because he’s still hoping to fit the movie in sometime next year. Hit the jump to see what Spock said.
