First Script For Roberto Orci's STAR TREK 3 Has Been Completed

First Script For Roberto Orci's STAR TREK 3 Has Been Completed

In July, screenwriter Roberto Orci, who is making his directorial debut with the next Star Trek film, revealed that a first draft of the script wasn't even completed, but has now informed that it is completed. Yahoo!

Roberto Orci ("The Amazing Spider-Man 2"), who has never directed a can of corn let alone a feature film was given the reins on the next installment of the Star Trek film franchise that J.J. Abrams ("Star Wars VII") nurtured for the past two films. In July, Orci gave fans pause as he revealed that Paramount hadn't given a greenlight to the project because not even the first draft was completed. But a few days ago, Orci dropped by and left two messages confirming the first draft was completed. His first post, "p & m & I wrote, "fade out" yesterday on first draft. things are moving." The "P" and the "M" are referring to his two fellow screenwriters Patrick McKay and JD Payne. Orci's second message clarified any confusion by stating, "First draft is done."

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. Now available at your local Blockbuster.

I have a feeling that this will be Star Trek's X-Men The Last Stand.

Let the games begin...

"I have a feeling that this will be Star Trek's X-Men The Last Stand"

Sadly I Agree..

With Star Wars and GotG, don't really need another Star Trek...
*runs for cover from the Trekkies*
Doopie - 8/17/2014, 1:54 PM
if it involves bringing in the TNG crowd I am for it. I'll watch it anyway I do like a bit of Star Trek
Knightrider - 8/17/2014, 1:55 PM
I kinda wish they had kept let Khan escape, and gave Star Trek their type of Vadar in which a villain recurs over a few movies. Plus Benedict was just awesome.

However, that being said, seeing as they ain't doing that I hope we get an original villain. Oh and I want the Enterprise to not get owned so much in this one. Show off what it can do,.

If they do go for reusing an old villain, I would love to see them handle the Borg, well, Kirk's way of handling the Borg.

charlie2094 - 8/17/2014, 2:00 PM
Sure this will turn out ok, really enjoyed the last two films. Interested in seeing what they do, though being a directorial debut is a bit strange.

Confident it will turn out ok, sure they could have gotten a different director if they really wanted, clearly trust him for a reason.
Doopie - 8/17/2014, 2:01 PM
yeah i really don't understand how he got the job having zero directing experience

In Hollywood the only thing that matters liberal ideology. It doesn't matter if you have no talent. And so people like Rattner, Orci, Affleck, Shane Black, Singer, Clooney, Schumacher can suck but still have careers.
JorL5150 - 8/17/2014, 2:02 PM
Buckets of shit.
Doopie - 8/17/2014, 2:04 PM
if you think clooney is talentless you really can't have seen Batman and Robin
typicalfanboy - 8/17/2014, 2:04 PM
who was the villain in the original star trek 3? that's who will be the villain here.
BlackBolt72 - 8/17/2014, 2:05 PM
I'm a trekkie and all I have to say they better remember thier roots. They have a good cast wasted on the Into Darkness mess. This one better be good or I'm done with it.
Hellboy6666 - 8/17/2014, 2:07 PM
I guess I'm the only one on my lonely little island. It's nice, peacefull-like.
Facade - 8/17/2014, 2:09 PM
I've seen them all since the beginning...good and bad...I'll see the next, too.

Biased articles is biased. But of course, you can get away with it.
DrDoom - 8/17/2014, 2:12 PM
The only articles that should be biased are Josh's TASM articles, because TASM deserves it :D

I think we have reached the point in the history of society when most understand how entirely distasteful it is to call anyone a "faggot." That word, much like the "n-word" is a sign of oppression and prejudice, and it would be much appreciated if you would refrain from using such language on this website. Whether you realize it or not, there are many LGBTQ comic fans, and you represent the community of superhero fans poorly when you stoop to using such epithets.

now with even more lensflares
Dingbat - 8/17/2014, 2:21 PM
Should have used this gif instead.

EhMaybeSays - 8/17/2014, 2:23 PM
I'm excited as well, if the Russos could have a career shift then so can Orci.

We're past the days where faggot was solely a derogatory term referring to homosexuals.
InfiniteMonkey - 8/17/2014, 2:24 PM
Yup @typicalfanboy, You are right, its going to be the Klingons that will be the villains. It so predictable with all the copy paste bullshit that lasted for four years. LOL

The sooner this movie pops out the better and faster it may be rebooted for better writers and directors. What a bloody waste.
EhMaybeSays - 8/17/2014, 2:25 PM
As well as the Russos, Gunn, Taylor and Whedon.
CaptainObvious - 8/17/2014, 2:26 PM
How could people not acknowledge that line at the end of the article?

"Now available at your local Blockbuster."
Niklander - 8/17/2014, 2:26 PM
I liked Into Darkness despites some stuff so .........bring it
MrFridayNights - 8/17/2014, 2:44 PM
ChrisEl I can say whatever the [frick] I want
Alphadog - 8/17/2014, 2:45 PM
@MrFridayNights @Neek2086 Well X-men 2 was much better than the first movie which isn't the case with the Star Trek movies so...
Alphadog - 8/17/2014, 2:46 PM
@batz11 Star Trek should be nothing at all like Star Wars or GotG. The theme of Star Trek is exploring space and seeing different societies interacting.
batz11 - 8/17/2014, 2:58 PM
I know, just messing, I actually like Star Trek, grew up with it...Even liked both of the most recent movies...
ChowdaHead - 8/17/2014, 3:08 PM
@MrFridayDouchebag, i dont know if your parents dont love you, if your girlfriend broke things off bcuz of how distasteful you were in bed, or if youre insecure about the fact that you just cant seem to grow hair on your genitalia, but using all those homophobic insults really make you look gay. If this is your coming out party, i just want you to know we will accept you for you. Its totally okay to be gay, its normal, so no need to use slander or hide. Be FREE. You big gay bird you!
ChowdaHead - 8/17/2014, 3:10 PM
@mrfridaynight no but on a real note, thank god you arent gay. you would give homosexuals a bad name.
MexicanSexyman - 8/17/2014, 3:10 PM
@ChrisEl, don't be sensitive.
CaptShipwreck - 8/17/2014, 3:19 PM
Lets give it a chance least till the first trailer
ChowdaHead - 8/17/2014, 3:19 PM
i look forward to seeing Orcis take. he was the real trekker of the group that jj brought on to reboot this thing. i think lindelof was the big issue. it was a miracle trek 09 turned out well. financially and critically. the writers strike made it impossible to revise any quibbles they had with the script, and yes jj dumbed it down for the g/a( read orcis script to see differences from final film) but i think thats why nongeek folk got onboard, it was "accessible". i think orci plans to make this a more trekkish trek film, more exploration based.
Darkknightman - 8/17/2014, 4:00 PM
His writing is so lazy. Things just happen because the script needs it to happen. Red Matter, magic blood, and other such foolish plot devices that have no logic is just insulting to it's audience.
