Roberto Orci Now "Clear Frontrunner" To Helm STAR TREK 3

We had already heard that he was in contention, but now it seems that having split from longtime writing partner Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci is now officially in talks to direct the third installment in the rebooted Star Trek franchise. More past the jump.


After campaigning for the director's chair for months, it appears Roberto Orci has finally entered early talks to replace J.J. Abrams on the third Star Trek movie. According to Deadline, he is now a "clear frontrunner", having evidently convinced Paramount that he's the man for the gig. Orci recently parted company with longtime partner Alex Kurtzman (much to the delight of many fans it must be noted), so they could both focus on directing...and it goes without saying that this would be a very ambitious project for any first timer. Orci doesn't have the job yet of course, though Deadline reckon this could "happen at warp speed" -- so keep an eye on CBM for updates.
