Roberto Orci Exits 'Star Trek 3', Edgar Wright Reportedly On Short-List

Talk about big Friday news! One of the big black marks on the upcoming 50th anniversary of Star Trek, which would see the third film of the franchise released, with Roberto Orci (co-writer of the two most recent Trek films) taking over as director.

Obviously, given that Orci was one of the bigger problem spots that many people had with the series and his lack of directorial credentials (he has none), fans were a bit upset with his promotion to the role.

According to Deadline though, this is no longer to be, as Orci has stepped away from the project. This is a fascinating development as Orci was working very closely with John D. Payne and Patrick McKay on the script, and Claudio Miranda (The Life of Pi) was hired on as the film's cinematographer. 

But, due to undisclosed reasons, Orci is gone.

On an enticing note, they also report that Edgar Wright, recently off of Ant-Man, is on a short-list to take over. Wright, who funny enough directed one single shot of Star Trek into Darkness, is a big fan of the franchise, and I can't express how much I'd love to see him take over this cast.

Great way to end a Friday!
