Roberto Orci Confirms He Will NOT Write STAR TREK 3

Roberto Orci Confirms He Will NOT Write STAR TREK 3

Roberto Orci, the man who co-wrote the first two Star Trek films in J.J. Abrams' alternate universe, left a comment at trekmovie.com to clarify he is NOT writing the script for Justin Lin's Star Trek 3. Hit the jump to check it out.


Several days ago when it was reported that Justin Lin ("The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift") replaced Roberto Orci as the director of Star Trek 3 many websites such as The New York Times, The Daily News, TrekMovie.com, and about a thousand more, added this bit of info, "Orci will still serve as a writer and producer on the film," I'm assuming that information originated from Deadline, which was the site that broke the story, but their article currently doesn't mention that information. Anyway, this caused a bit of confusion for Star Trek fans and Orci decided to visit trekmovie.com and leave a message in their comment section to clarify his involvement. "I’m producing, Mothing Nothing more or less," Orci wrote.

He also took a moment to defend the alternate Star Trek timeline he helped to create, which some fans still haven't embraced. Orci wrote, "Stop blaming BR (Bad Robot). It was my idea so that you would not know what was gonna happen next. Nothing more or less. I Stand behind it. And it, again, is the reason why I make movies and you don’t."
When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organisation has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis. With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction. As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.

STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS was directed by J.J. Abrams ("Super 8"), from a screenplay written by Damon Lindelof, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci. Returning for the sequel are Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, John Cho, Bruce Greenwood, Simon Pegg, Zoë Saldana, and Anton Yelchin. Joined by new cast members Benedict Cumberbatch, Alice Eve and Peter Weller.
