Roberto Orci Will NOT Direct "Star Trek 3," Edgar Wright May Replace Him

Posted: December 6th, 2014 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Roberto Orci Will NOT Direct "Star Trek 3," Edgar Wright May Replace HimSubmit Comment
After JJ Abrams left the "Star Trek" franchise to direct "Star Wars: Episode VII," Roberto Orci was brought on to replace him on "Star Trek 3." Orci and his writing partner Alex Kurtzman provided the screenplays for the first two "Star Trek" installments.

Now comes word that Orci has officially dropped out of directing "Star Trek 3," which will move forward with the screenplay, written by Orci, Patrick McKay and JD Payne. A release date has yet to be announced, but the plan is to have the movie in theaters in 2016, which is the 50th anniversary of the franchise.

Regarding who will step in to replace Orci as the director, there are several reports indicating that Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead) is in talks.

"there are several reports indicating that Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead) is in talks."

Only until he gets pissy because he has to make the movie the way the studio wants and walks off the project. You know, like Ant Man.

Whatever. Franchise died the day Roddenberry croaked.

Thank Jeebus.
Orci and Kurtzman ruined INTO DARKNESS, not Abrams.

What a relief. At least there's still a glimmer of hope that wright will make this movie a little bit better.

Orci dropped our due to rectum problems. Dustin Putnam has made no comment so far.

Thank f*ck for that! Hopefully he'll nip this wannabe directing in the ass now. He's had a bad run writing, so perhaps he should just quit Hollywood full stop.

Edgar Wright needs to do a re-write and cast Nick Frost as Harry Mudd and make it entirely in his style and an actual fun and funny Star Trek film more in the tone of an original series episode. Make Scotty a central character.

Not this dark, maudlin bullsh*t we got with the last 2 heaps of sh*te.

Imo, that would be the very best way to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the franchise. A film that is very much like the orignal series.

Why does every adaptation have to be dark? When I look around, there are black people everywhere! It's crazy

The 2nd one was f*cking pointless anyways because it was a bad remake of The Wrath of Khan which is the best Star Trek film and one of the best sequels of all time.

It was also brilliant because it was also a sequel to the original series episode, "Space Seed".
