This is a story that keeps on giving so once again we’ve got news via other sources that Roberto Orci, the original director and screenwriter of Star Trek 3 (2016) who, vacated the captain’s chair a few weeks ago, also has apparently left the writing process as well. About the only hat he has left, though it is still a big one, is being one of the film’s producers.

Breaking – New Director to take over Star Trek 3 (2016)
