Re: Badass Digest says new writers for Trek 3; studio aiming for the 5
take that site with a grain of salt
I'll believe it only when an official announcement is made.
that said, if they choose other writers it's quite possible they are only handed the boring task to write the final script but the story and main ideas are still Orci&Kurtman's work.
It wouldn't be the first time and it would make sense since the duo has other scripts to write.
Orci & Kurtzman would still get story and executive producing credits while someone else gets credit for writing the screenplay based off their story.
