With JJ Abrams filming in a galaxy far, far away... Paramount isn't prepared to put the franchise in dry dock for the foreseeable future.
Step forward Roberto Orci. The Star Trek and Transformers scribe is directing the third movie with Abrams producing, according to Variety.
This is Orci's first time at the helm and marks a change in direction since splitting with longtime writing partner Alex Kurtzman. The trio of Abrams, Kurtzman and Orci brought us televisual masterpiece Fringe.
