Lindelof not writing next trek movie?

I'm starting to hear rumors about Lindelof not returning to write for next trek movie. Orci and Kurtzman are in the works to return.

Does anyone have solid info on this?

And what does everyone think if this development turns out to be true?

Meh. Having any of them return leaves me feeling empty inside.

Apparently Orci & Kurtzman are back for ST13 now, so I can look forward to the next film having several good character beats, some unmotivated-but-good action scenes, and make zero sense.

If it's true, we'd might end up with a movie that won't borrow so much from previous [prime universe] Trek movies (i.e, no nuKruge trying to steal some nuFederation super weapon).

Re: Lindelof not writing next trek movie?

If they do get new writers, and even if they do not, I want to see something completely new and fresh without really any nods to the original series. Too many in the last film.

The second one made more sense than the first one.

Only if you assume Admiral Marcus and Section 31 are literally dumber than the prison warden in Escape from New York. Seriously, sticking a remote detonation bomb inside Khan would've been one of the first things I would've done if I recruited him for S31.

I won't miss Lindelof, if he's gone maybe there is hope the last movie won't end in a church with the characters preparing to go in paradise.

I don't know which parts of the script were written by Lindelof, but considering that I liked STID more than ST09 I don't view this as good news.

It was Lindelof's idea for the movie to feature Khan and other nods to the original Trek continuity.

I'm waiting for the headline that says "Lindelof Not Returning For Any Movies".

Is that indeed true? I know that was the case with Prometheus, and I always thought it might be Lindelof to blame for all the Khan stuff.

Re: Lindelof not writing next trek movie?

^Yeah.

“[Damon Lindelof] argued for Khan from the beginning and I argued against it,” said Orci.

The TBBS thread about that topic.

And an earlier statement by Orci led to this topic. Bob Orci's Comment: The Film Stood on its Own Without...[Spoilers]

I really wish Orci had stood his ground against Khan but o'well, water under the bridge now.

Re: Lindelof not writing next trek movie?

I'm more comfortable with Lindelof than I am with Orci and Kurtzman. Lindelof did some good stuff on LOST, but I've never seen anything written by Orci and Kurtzman that I thought was any good.

Re: Lindelof not writing next trek movie?

I have just noticed something really strange about Orci and Kurtzman when it comes to films.

Many all their films (transformers 1 and 2, cowboys and aliens) seems to get bad reviews when JJ Abram's is not the director of the film.


I wonder how the critics would have judged STiD if JJ wasn't the director. I doubt it would be sitting comfortably at an 87% fresh on RT.
