With the internet ablaze with rumours last night that JJ Abrams was close to walking from the Star Wars Episode VII gig, another story has added a little fuel to the flames…
According to Dark Horizons, Thor and X-Men: First Class writers – who also were producers on Fringe – Edward Miller and Zack Stentz may be coming on board to write Star Trek 3. However, the writers of the first two Trek movies, Bob Orci and Alex Kurtzman, are still officially attached, so this is a rumour – albeit an interesting one.
Apparently the change, that was actually arranged by Orci and Kurtzman, is to accommodate Paramount who want Trek 3 in cinemas in 2016 and to allow JJ Abrams to direct. If this is true, it supports the rumours that JJ’s leaving Star Wars.
What say you all?
