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.
I was too lazy to report a few weeks ago that Bob Orci had left the director’s chair for the upcoming Star Trek 3 due to unknown circumstances. Since then Hollywood has been abuzz as to who would be his replacement with names such as Duncan Jones and Rupert Wyatt bandied about. Now, according to Deadline and other websites it looks as if Paramount has found their man.
Well that was FAST. We haven’t seen much from Justin Lin’s next installment in the franchise for months until the sixty second Super Bowl spot a few days ago but now Universal has released a massive extended three minute and twenty one second trailer that basically spills the beans on most of the movie.
