Two new writers board the next Star Trek movie, as Alex Kurtzman drops out of the project...

Paramount has brought in a couple of new writers to help put together the script for the next adventure in the Star Trek cinematic franchise.

Roberto Orci remains on board the project, although his regular writing partner Alex Kurtzman has now dropped out, due to the number of other projects his involved with. Damon Lindelof too, who co-wrote Star Trek Into Darkness, isn't on scripting duties this time around.

Instead, J D Payne and Patrick McKay have signed up for the new movie. The pair have done plenty of screenwriting work to date, although a film with their name on the writing credits hasn't yet made it to the big screen. That might just be a matter of time now.
