全tar Trek 3′: Roberto Orci Wants to Direct
 
From Slashfilm.com

Quote:

The real news, however, is that Orci has been lobbying to direct Star Trek 3, which he is also writing with with Patrick McKay and John D. Payne. The report is that JJ Abrams and Bad Robot are in favor of him getting the job, as are David Ellison and Skydance Productions, the chief financiers.

Were this to happen, Orci's tumultuous relationship with fans would probably go to the next level.

I don't think he's a bad choice either. He's hinted that he didn't agree with a lot of the decisions that were made on STID.

I'm skeptical. Orci doesn't have a single directing credit on his rap sheet. I certainly wouldn't trust a novice first-time director on a high budget franchise, regardless of his success in producing or writing.

Devin Faraci of Badassdigest.com doesn't want Orci to direct Star Trek 3, either.

Frankly, though I still believe it was unprofessional and beyond the pale for Orci to tell fans to "fuck off" - no matter how much fans deserved it, I think he would be an interesting choice.

He's clearly passionate about Trek and there's some part of me that is happy to see a dyed-in-the-wool fan ascend to the very top of Trek. I don't think this has ever happened before.

Since this is the third film in the franchise the only other kind of director they'll probably get is either a no-name commercials guy or a journeyman. Why not just let Orci make the movie when he has been working on the property already for years.

I think Orci is a good choice. Plus, Abrams is still producing and will be available to offer advice, criticism and encouragement.

Well, if Orci falls through I hear William Shatner is available.

I think Duncan Jones would be a great fit. He's already proven he can do solid science fiction (Moon, Source Code) and he still hasn't had his big break yet.

An arrogant fanboy (Orci) directing? Oh hell no. Might as well have Lindelof direct Prometheus 2.

Well, if Devin Faraci doesn't want it to happen, then I say:

OR-CI, OR-CI, OR-CI!!!!! YEAHHH!!!!

(not my first choice, but I doubt the world is ready for a Tarantino take on Trek :lol:)

Quentin Tarantino's Star Trek. Phaser fire, even on stun, leaves a hole clear through a human torso. Spock says "fuck" about 300 times.

wonder if Singer could be a possible? (maybe XMA might get another director now)

It's almost worth it for that reason alone.

I can't think of a good reason why he shouldn't do it. He's clearly passionate about Trek and has been deeply involved in both films.
