Roberto Orci not writing Star Trek 3, reminds fans why he makes movies and we don’t

2 minutes ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Justin Lin (Fast & Furious 6) now signed on to direct Star Trek 3 as Roberto Orci’s replacement, it had been reported that Orci would remain involved in the project in a writing and producing capacity. However, Orci has now taken to the message boards on TrekMovie to clarify that he is not involved with the script, stating that: “I’m producing. Nothing more or less.”

Meanwhile, the outspoken Orci couldn’t resist jumping to the defence of the rebooted series’ alternate time-line by commenting: “Stop blaming [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.”

So there. Orci knows best. It’s a shame he’s not writing and directing, as surely we’d be in for the greatest Star Trek movie of all time… »

Roberto Orci Confirms He Will Not Write Star Trek 3

33 minutes ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Star Trek franchise writer Roberto Orci has confirmed through Trek Movie that he will not be writing the script for Star Trek 3. After he dropped out of the film as director, we heard he would still be writing the script and producing, but he clarified his involvement with the movie saying, "I’m producing, nothing more or less."

He also took the opportunity to defend the alternate Star Trek timeline that he helped to create for the continuing adventures.

"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."

Seems like he's a bit frustrated at the moment. As you know, he was recently replaced as the director of the film by Justin Lin (Fast and Furious »

Movie News - July 2016 release date for Star Trek 3

1 hour ago | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Movie News - 'Star Trek 3' has been given a release date of July 8, 2016. The much-hyped release of the sci-fi film will mark the 50th anniversary of Star Trek's television series, which first hit screens on September 8, 1966, Variety reports. The news comes shortly after it was confirmed that Justin Lin is to direct 'Star Trek 3'. The 'Fast & Furious' director was chosen to replace Roberto Orci, who relinquished the role but opted to stay on as a producer of the film. A number of high-profile directors were linked to the coveted role in recent weeks, including Morten Tyldum of 'The Imitation Game', but Lin was the only person to have been offered the job. The move came after Lin's planned 'Bourne Legacy' sequel starring Jeremy Renner was delayed to allow Matt Damon to return to the Bourne franchise. And it's been confirmed he'll »

Roberto Orci Is No Longer Writing 'Star Trek 3'

2 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this month, it was reported that Roberto Orci had been removed as director of Star Trek 3. At the time, it was rumored that he'd been removed from the position because Paramount did not like the screenplay that was turned in by Orci, which was written alongside relative newcomers J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay. While it has not been confirmed that the script was, indeed, the reason Roberto Orci got the boot, he has now confirmed himself that he is only serving as a producer on the sequel.

Roberto Orci, who is a frequent commenter on TrekMovie.com, revealed the following information, clarifying that he is still onboard the sequel, but only as a producer.

""I'm producing. Nothing more or less,"

Last week, it was confirmed that Fast & Furious director Justin Lin will be taking over Star Trek 3 as director. At the time of the announcement, Roberto Orci »

Roberto Orci Confirms He Will Not Write Star Trek 3

17 hours ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

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.

Star Trek 3 Has a Release Date

24 December 2014 6:45 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Not long ago we reported that Fast and Furious director Justin Lin will be taking on the challenge of directing Star Trek 3. There seem to be mixed reactions from fans regarding the choice. Hopefully he has what it takes to deliver another kick-ass movie that we can enjoy.

Variety is now reporting that Paramount Pictures plans to release the film on July 8th, 2016. This will mark the 50th anniversary of the franchise, which launched on NBC September 8th, 1966. 

Even though I'm not completely on board with Lin, directing the movie, he's still probably a better choice than Roberto Orci, who has never directed a film. I'm looking forward to seeing what space adventure they tell this time around.  »

Star Trek 3 Set For July 8, 2016

23 December 2014 1:41 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Well, that was fast. Just one day after Fast & Furious helmer Justin Lin signed on to direct Star Trek 3, Paramount Pictures has set a release date for the anticipated threequel. Fans should mark their calendars for July 8th, 2016, two month’s before Star Trek‘s fiftieth anniversary.

It’s been an unexpectedly rocky road for Star Trek 3 since J.J. Abrams, who helmed 2009’s Star Trek and 2013’s Star Trek Into Darkness, jumped ship to take the reins on a different sci-fi franchise in a galaxy far, far away. Producer Roberto Orci campaigned hard to land the gig, which would have been his directorial debut. After eventually landing the job, though, he was sacked over creative differences earlier this month.

Lin, a favorite for blockbuster fare due to his work resuscitating the Fast & Furious franchise, then came into consideration alongside Rise of the Planet of the Apes helmer Rupert Wyatt, »

Justin Lin to direct Star Trek 3; here are 4 people who should direct Star Trek 4

23 December 2014 1:31 PM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

[N.B. This article started out as being about Star Trek 3, but then Justin Lin was announced as director before the article was published. Having directed four Fast and Furious films, including the terrific Fast Five, Justin Lin is a brilliant action director, who's bound to deliver on a blockbuster level, although the same could be said of basically any action movie he might work on.

The article follows, slightly reworked for Star Trek 4, seeing as Star Trek is a franchise with lots of potential to explore further, and Justin Lin is a highly sought-after director, who will probably go on to The Bourne Legacy 2 and then perhaps Fast and Furious sequels after finishing Star Trek 3. So this is probably the first article about who should direct Star Trek 4...]

Recently, Roberto Orci stepped down from directing Star Trek 3 (2016), which would have been his directorial debut. He's worked on the screenplays for all three rebooted Star Trek movies, and remains involved in Star Trek 3 as a producer.

The obvious question remained: who would direct Star Trek 3?

With Star Trek (2009) and Star Trek: Into Darkness (2013) director J.J. Abrams busy directing the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII (2015), Justin Lin is stepping in to direct Star Trek 3, now set for July 8, 2016.

The third instalment of the sci-fi reboot will be released on July 8, 2016, reports Variety.

The release date will mark the 50th anniversary of Star Trek's television series, which launched on September 8, 1966.

The news comes after it was announced that Fast & Furious 6 director Justin Lin will be directing the movie.

Roberto Orci was originally due to direct, after replacing Jj Abrams, but will remain as a producer on the project.

Abrams left Star Trek due to his commitment to Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Chris Pine, Zoe Saldana, Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin and John Cho are all expected to return for Star Trek 3.

Star Trek 3 Gets a July 8, 2016 Release Date

23 December 2014 12:14 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Even though it's only been a day since the new director for Star Trek 3 was announced, it seems as though the project is right back on track because Paramount Pictures just set a release date for the film.  A couple of weeks back, we learned that Roberto Orci vacated the position due to creative differences and now Fast Five’s Justin Lin is at the helm. We’ll get to see what Lin does for the film franchise when Star Trek 3 hits theaters on July 8, 2016, two months before Star Trek’s 50th anniversary.  It’s currently free and clear of competition, but that’s a prime summertime spot right there so that likely won't be the case for long.  Hit the jump for more on the Star Trek 3 release date news. After the director shake-up, revealing the Star Trek 3 release date is a nice show of confidence from Paramount. »

Briefly: Paramount has confirmed via Deadline that the next Star Trek sequel will be hitting theaters in July 2016. Yesterday it was revealed that Fast Five / Fast & Furious 6 director Justin Lin had scored the job of directing the highly anticipated sequel after Roberto Orci stepped down.

Now that he's on-board and ready to direct, they can confirm and announce the release date - July 8th, 2016, a week before The Bourne Betrayal and a week after David Yates' Tarzan is released.

Star Trek 3 has a director and release date

23 December 2014 11:53 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Justin Lin takes over from Jj Abrams on the Star Trek franchise, as Paramount confirms a summer 2016 release for the next film.

Typical. We try and have a day or two off, and post a big long letter about why we're doing so, and then the movie news just keeps on coming. Tsk.

This one couldn't wait though, as there's been a fair bit of Star Trek news.

Specifically, the next Star Trek film now has a release date, and it also has a director.

In reverse order, Justin Lin is the man who's going to take over from Jj Abrams in the Star Trek director's chair. Lin's main directorial claim to fame thus far has been the four most successful Fast & Furious films to date. He'll take on the Star Trek job that, until recently, did seem to be heading in Roberto Orci's direction.

‘Star Trek 3′ Sets July 8, 2016, Release Date

23 December 2014 11:42 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paramount Pictures will release “Star Trek 3″ on July 8, 2016 — marking the 50-year anniversary of the television launch of the landmark science-fiction series.

Star Trek 3″ is the first title to be dated for July 8, 2016. Steven Spielberg’s “The Bfg” and Warner Bros.’ live-action “Tarzan” open a week earlier.

The TV series debuted on Sept. 8, 1966, on NBC and aired for three seasons.

Tuesday’s dating announcement came a day after Justin Lin signed on to direct the third installment in Paramount’s rebooted “Star Trek” franchise. The hiring of Lin came two weeks after Roberto Orci backed away from the directing gig.

Orci had been hired for the helming job earlier this year after J.J. Abrams had to exit the sequel due to his commitment to direct Disney’s “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” Abrams directed the first two “Star Trek” reboots in 2009 and 2013.

"Star Trek 3" Hits July 8th 2016

23 December 2014 11:41 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Less than a day after it was announced that frequent "Fast and Furious" film director Justin Lin has been brought in to take the helm of the third "Star Trek" film, news comes today that Paramount Pictures has announced a July 8th 2016 release date for the next chapter in the rebooted film series.

Right now there's no competition for that release slot, though Spielberg's "The Bfg" & David Yates' "Tarzan" open the week before, and "Ice Age 5" and the Damon/Greengrass 'Bourne' reunion open the following week.

The news confirms the studio is on track to release the film to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the original "Star Trek" TV series. Lin takes over from the previously linked Roberto Orci who remains onboard as producer. No word as yet if his script with J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay has been entirely ditched as rumours suggest. »

Star Trek 3 Gets A Release Date

In the Summer of 2016, Paramount will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the original Star Trek series by releasing Star Trek 3. Today, Paramount Pictures has given the film a July 8, 2016 release date. The film will be directed by Justin Lin ("Fast and Furious"), who was announced as the new director after Paramount phased out Roberto Orci. As of right now, no other films occupy that release date, but at one time an untitled Marvel film did, but there was no mention of it when Kevin Feige outlined Phase 3 of the Marvel cinematic universe. Though, Star Trek 3 will have to contend with David Yates' live-action Tarzan and Steven Spielberg's The Bfg, which open a week before. For comparison, 2009's Star Trek and 2013's Star Trek Into Darkness both opened in April. When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror »
