Ender's Game is in cinemas this week, and we spoke to producer Bob Orci about the Sf epic. But he's also working on another Sf franchise at the moment - writing the follow-up to his Star Trek Into Darkness script, Star Trek 3. We asked him how far along he is with the project, he told us, then asked Ender's Game star Harrison Ford if he'd be in it. Ford's reaction may surprise you, and it can be seen below. Ender's Game is in UK cinemas on 25 October.

With "G.I. Joe 3" in the mix and rumors of "Star Trek 3" as well, it would appear that director Jon M. Chu had one blockbuster too many on his plate. So, sorry He-Man fans, you'll have to wait a bit longer for your movie. THR reports that while "Masters of the Universe" has landed yet another writer to try and get a script in order—this time Terry Rossio ("The Lone Ranger" and every "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie)—it will be moving on without Chu. No reason has been given for his departure, though perhaps he woke up one morning and realized he was attached to direct "Masters of the Universe" and came to his senses. In other director news: Deadline reports that "Parkland" helmer Peter Landesman has been slated to direct "Down By the River," an adaptation of the non-fiction book by Charles Bowden. Landesman will also »

No reason was given for the director's departure, but he had been attached to the languishing project since July 2012. The filmmaker signed on to direct G.I. Joe 3 back in June, and we also reported in August that the filmmaker was being sought to direct another Paramount sequel, Star Trek 3.
Little is known about the story, which was previously called Greyskull, except that it will be set on He-Man's home planet of Eternia, which He-Man defends from Skeletor. The original He-Man and the Masters of »
Star Trek has given us some awesome cinema moments. Be it the fight with the Reliant in the Mutara Nebula, or Kirk stealing the Enterprise in Star Trek III: The Search For Spock, some moments have become all-time classics within the sci-fi genre. But for every one of those moments, Star Trek has its fair share of duds. Scenes you can’t understand why they included in the film. What in Starfleet’s name prompted the writers to include them?
For every scene that is handled perfectly, such as Spock’s death in The Wrath Of Khan, we have Scotty bumping his head in Star Trek V: The Final Frontier. And although there are a few scenes that probably sounded good on paper, when it came to filming them, something happened during the production process that turned them full-on face palm.
Looking at the franchise though rational eyes, then, here »

Amazon has a fantastic deal today on the six-movie Star Trek: Original Motion Picture Collection" for only $29.99, which means you're only paying $5 per film. Included in the set are Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, Star Trek V: The Final Frontier and Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. I own this set and love it, but then again I'm a huge fan of the original Star Trek cast. Of course, Star Trek V and VI are stinkers and the first film isn't an all-out hit, but Khan, Search for Spock and Voyage Home are great in my opinion and as a fan of the franchise I can watch the others just as easily. I reviewed this set back in 2009 where I concluded the review saying, "This Blu-ray set makes watching »

Anthony Stokes is frustrated by franchises shooting themselves in the foot....
Franchises are a big part of the Hollywood model. Every movie is tailored to have a sequel, in the hope of becoming the next Harry Potter or Twilight. But sometimes a director, screenwriter, or producer will make a creative decision that severely handicaps a sequel to a popular movie - be it by trying to add emotional impact, keeping a popular character around, fan service, or whatever other reason. Recently I've noticed a trend of this occurring more frequently, with someone calling the shots not thinking things all the way through. These are the most frustrating cases in my opinion. Spoilers Ahead...

"It's about time Star Trek returned to TV" - Matt Littledyke
"A new Trek TV series would be excellent" - David Ryan
"Hell yeah! Bring it on!" - Carl Waring
And they're not alone - Captain Kirk himself, William Shatner, has voiced his support for Trek's return to the small screen, saying: "You get a lot of... CGI effects [in a film], which is the epic movie-making aspect of today. But when you get into the small screen, you need stories - entertaining, interesting, vital stories."
But is The Shat correct? Should Star Trek be back on television? Could the iconic franchise hope to flourish in the current Us TV climate? Or is it best left to the multiplexes, »
With the release of the second Star Trek feature from director J.J. Abrams, Star Trek Into Darkness, earlier this summer it seems like as good a time as any to have some fun and remember the best Star Trek movie scenes from earlier films that are, well, just plain fun. I would assume that by now, you’ve at the very least seen one of the Abrams-helmed Star Trek films. Critical reaction for Star Trek (2009) and Star Trek Into Darkness was almost universally positive and each film found a receptive audience in both fans and non-fans alike. But, that wasn’t how most Star Trek films have traditionally been received. Apart from Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, the series hadn’t really produced an entry that could readily appeal to non-fans. While it’s true that Wrath of Khan and First Contact were popular movies, they were still mostly »

Some of the old guard is starting to return to "Star Trek 3." There had been some rumors that Paramount and Skydance Productions would bring a pair of younger screenwriters to pen the upcoming "Star Trek Into Darkness" sequel, but instead they opted to stick with Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman once again.
The Hollywood Reporter has learned the screenwriting duo is in negotiations to pen the next installment of the "Star Trek" franchise. Unlike "Star Trek Into Darkness," Damon Lindelof likely won't share a writing credit.
Meanwhile the site is reporting that Abrams is in negotiations to produce "Star Trek 3." There was some doubt about that considering his involvement with "Star Wars: Episode VII," but it would have been surprising for him to not even be involved on a producer level with the "Star Trek" franchise as it seemingly boldly goes on without him. In other words: don't expect to see Abrams directing this movie. »
The director of "Star Trek 3" remains a mystery at present time, but not the film's screenwriters. According to THR, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, the writing duo behind the first two films (albeit with help on "Star Trek Into Darkness" from Damon Lindelof), will write "Star Trek 3" for Paramount and Bad Robot.
Whether Kurtzman and Orci, who also wrote the scripts for "Transformers," "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" and "The Edge of Tomorrow," would return for another tour of duty on the U.S.S. Enterprise was up for debate as recently as last month. A July 22 report from Badass Digest claimed that Ashley Edward Miller and Zack Stentz ("X-Men: First Class" and "Thor") were on the verge of being hired for the job. Per THR, Miller and Stentz were discussed for the project but apparently Paramount decided to go with Kurtzman and Orci.

Good news everyone! Looks like those rumors yesterday about Jon M. Chu directing Star Trek 3 are not true. A representative for Chu talked to the Huffington Post and told them that the director has not been contacted by the studio for the project. The list of other possible directors from yesterday didn't have one filmmaker that (according to Cinematallic) is now a "lock" to helm the new Star Trek film: Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes director Rupert Wyatt.

Despite earlier reports, Rupert Wyatt appears to be the frontrunner to direct Star Trek 3, not Jon M. Chu. This news come to us via Collider, who are reporting that the rumors that surfaced a few hours ago appear to be just that, rumors.
What leads them to believe this is a couple of things. One, Chu has G.I. Joe 3 on his plate, which would make it tough to helm Star Trek 3 as well. More importantly, however, is that Chu’s reps deny any involvement with the project, stating that the director hasn’t even been contacted yet. Finally, Collider editor-in-chief is hearing from his sources that Rupert Wyatt is in fact up for the job.
Now, this could just be yet another rumor that proves to be untrue, but Cinematallica is also reporting the same thing, that sources are pointing to Wyatt being “virtually a lock” for the gig. »

Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness writers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman are in negotiations to write the screenplay for Star Trek 3, with J.J. Abrams in talks to remain aboard the franchise as a producer.
Star Trek Into Darkness co-writer Damon Lindelof is not going to be a part of this sequel, which Paramount is hoping to release in 2016, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the original Star Trek TV series created by Gene Roddenberry. The studio had flirted with bringing a new writing team on board, recently meeting with Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller (Thor, X-Men: First Class), before coming back to Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman.
Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto and Zoe Saldana are expected to return as Kirk, Spock, and Uhura. Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman also wrote The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and are producing the Untitled Mummy Reboot and Van Helsing remake through their first-look deal at Universal Pictures. »
It’s been a while since we’ve seen a trailer for a trailer, but Summit Entertainment is here to fill that void with a preview look at tomorrow’s new Ender’s Game trailer. The film tells the story of Andrew “Ender” Wiggin (Asa Butterfield), a young boy sent away to Battle School to hone his military skills in order to save the world from an impending alien invasion. With the release date looming closer, a larger portion of the film’s visual effects are ready for public viewing, so this trailer smartly appears to be selling the pic’s impressive visuals, along with more Harrison Ford growling. Hit the jump to watch the trailer preview, and check back here tomorrow, August 6th at 9am Pst to watch the full new trailer. The film also stars Hailee Steinfeld, Ben Kingsley, Viola Davis, and Abigail Breslin. Ender’s Game opens November 1st. »

How do you say "whoops" in Klingon?
Netflix removed "Star Trek III: The Search For Spock" from its site temporarily on Tuesday morning because there were issues with the translations of Vulcan and Klingon in the movie's subtitles, the company told The Huffington Post on Thursday. The movie returned to the site Wednesday evening.
"We were able to quickly track down translations and the title is back up and available for streaming," a Netflix representative emailed.
"Star Trek," believe it or not, is the most-watched TV show on streaming sites, according to market research group GfK's 2013 report on how people use media. GfK had 502 regular online streamers keep a diary of their streaming habits over a period of time, and the winner, with 4 percent of TV watched, was "Star Trek." The next-most popular shows "Breaking Bad" and "Mad Men" each garnered 3 percent of viewing time.

Opening on November 1st is Gavin Hood‘s adaptation of Orson Scott Card’s award-winning sci-fi novel Ender’s Game. The film tells the story of Andrew “Ender” Wiggin (Asa Butterfield), a young boy sent away to Battle School to hone his military skills and, hopefully, save the world from an impending alien invasion. The film also stars Hailee Steinfeld, Abigail Breslin, Viola Davis, Khylin Rhambo, Moises Arias, and Ben Kingsley. For more on the film, here's the trailer, our Comic-Con recap, and all our previous coverage. While at Comic-Con, I sat down with Hood and producer Bob Orci. We talked about how they decided on the footage they'd show at Comic-Con, the debate and controversy surrounding Card’s homophobic comments, the editing process, the current running time, and more. In addition, with Orci co-writing and producing the recent Star Trek films, I asked about the current status of a »

As long as Bob Orci and Alex Kurtzman are attached to write new Star Trek movies, I have no faith in the franchise. While they’ll likely be on board in some capacity for years to come (sigh), it looks like a new writing duo is coming on board for Star Trek 3. According to Badass Digest, screenwriters Ashley Edward Miller and Zack Stentz (Thor, X-Men: First Class) are close to a done deal on penning the next Star Trek movie. Miller and Stentz are in the Bad Robot family from their work as writers and producers on Fringe, and their Trek bonafides are marginally boosted by their work on Andromeda, a series based on unused material by the late Gene Roddenberry. Hit the jump for more including the rumor that J.J. Abrams might drop out of directing Star Wars: Episode VII. Before you get too excited about new writers joining Star Trek 3, »

James Bond (the movie version) turned 50 last year, and James Tiberius Kirk – along with his loyal crew members of the original U.S.S. Enterprise – will join the half-centennial club in 2016. It’s feasible that a followup to this past May’s Star Trek Into Darkness, a.k.a. Star Trek 3, could reach theaters in times to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Gene Roddenberry’s original Star Trek TV show (much like Skyfall was released in theaters in 2012 to celebrate 007′s birthday).
Star Trek producer Bryan Burke previously claimed that a 2016 release date for the next Star Trek movie is not guaranteed, but he and fellow producers Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and J.J. Abrams do not want to ...
