Roberto Orci Aiming For Directing Gig on Star Trek 3
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 04.22.2014

If Roberto Orci and Bad Robot have their way, he'll be in the director's chair for the next Star Trek film. Variety notes in an article reporting on Orci and longtime writing partner Alex Kurtzman's professional split that Orci is shooting for the job of directing the film, which is currently rudderless with J.J. Abrams having headed over to helm Star Wars: Episode VII. The site notes that Abram's Bad Robot production company is throwing its weight behind Orci but that Paramount isn't entirely on board due to Orci's lack of big-budget directing experience.

Orci and Kurtzman are splitting creatively (and amicably) so that they can go do their own things. The two have been involved in some of the biggest genre films over the last several years including Mission: Impossible III, both Star Trek films, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and Cowboys & Aliens. Obviously, they haven't all been great or successes but they have shaped the direction of tentpole genre films. The two will remain together on their TV properties, which include Sleepy Hollow and Hawaii Five-0. Kurtzman is currently on board to direct Sony's Venom spin-off from the Spider-Man franchise.
