Roberto Orci Really Wants To Direct 'Star Trek 3', and Other Directing News

April 22, 2014


- Total Recall remaker Len Wiseman is reportedly attached to direct Black Chapter, a spy thriller from The Incredible Hulk writer Zak Penn that sees an FBI agent pulled into a secret military program training agents to use paranormal abilities. The fantastical dream of mind-controlled drone attacks is here!

- Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are apparently disbanding their feature film union, a prolific partnership that penned the explosions of Transformers, Star Trek, The Island, and more. With Kurtzman already directing Sony's Venom movie, Orci is said to now be lobbying to make the next Star Trek sequel his directorial debut. Otherwise, he's the one who looks like he got screwed in the divorce.

- Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke will reportedly direct the Rachel Weisz-Toni Collette dramedy Miss You Already. The stars are attached to play lifelong friends whose relationship is torn apart when one becomes pregnant and the other gets sick. Any friendship that can't handle a little joint vomiting and hospitalization isn't much of a friendship really, though, is it?
