We have a very love/hate relationship with Alex Kurtzman and robert Orci. As in, we at FTN love some of their work and hate some of their work. We just can’t always agree on which way around it is…
Starting out on TV shows Hercules and Alias, the pair have moved on to JJ Abrams’ Star Trek movies, Michael Bay’s Transformers movies (both of which have caused more tremors in the Force than Alderaan being blown up) and have also worked on another two TV shows,both of which we universally love here, Fringe and Sleepy Hollow.
They of course worked on many other things, including Cowboys and Aliens and Mission Impossible III. Has a partnership ever run as hit-and-miss as these two?!
Anyway, despite their break, their TV production house K/O Paper Products is unaffected. Orci is currently penning – and hoping to direct – Star Trek 3 while Kurtzman is currently sticking (ahem) with the Spider-man franchise after penning The Amazing Spider-man 2 and is working on the Venom spin-off.
