Roberto Orci Talks STAR TREK 3

Roberto Orci Talks STAR TREK 3

Roberto Orci recently sat down on the new Geoff Boucher podcast Humans From Earth and discussed Star Trek which he'll be directing. He dropped a few hints about what to expect from the film when it's released in 2016. Hit the jump!



It was really a surprise when it was announced that Roberto Orci would be helming the new Star Trek film. The news was met with mixed responses from fans. Well Orci decided to open up about the film , revealing a little about the planned setting.
 

"In [Into Darkness] they set out finally where the original series started. The first two films – especially the 2009 [Star Trek] – was an origin story. It was about them coming together. So they weren’t the characters they were in the original series. They were growing into them and that continues on in the second movie.  So in this movie they are closer than they are to the original series characters that you have ever seen. They have set off on their five-year mission. So their adventure is going to be in deep space."


So does this mean we won't be seeing earth at all in Star Trek 3?  It's certainly a major departure from the last two films which were set on earth or near earth, never really venturing deep into space.

Orci then joked about the movie's villians. "The Horta is actually the villain in the next one – no – they are in deep space now, so lets see what’s out there."

Are you looking forward to the next Star Trek film? Leave your thoughts in the usual place.
