Re: 全tar Trek 3′: Roberto Orci Wants to Direct

^ I'm trying not to hope one way or another about Bryan Singer's troubles, since there's no way of knowing the truth. Even if it is resolved, it looks to me like he would have wayyy too much on his plate.

I didn't like his truther bullshit in a Trek, so having him possibly direct only crushes whatever optimism I had for TREK 3.
"Truther" bullshit?

^ Orci is a known "9/11 Truther," a conspiracy theorist about the 9/11 attacks. (You know, "9/11 was an inside job," that sort of thing.) Some people see his Trutherism as being hinted at in STID's conspiracy-laden storyline.

Quentin Tarantino's Star Trek. Phaser fire, even on stun, leaves a hole clear through a human torso. Spock says "fuck" about 300 times.
I'd give a week's pay to see that.

Honestly, making a film for yourself and not caring what the fans think is arguably the best way to make a good film that the fans will love. If you worry too much about pleasing other people, your work won't be as honest or meaningful or courageous as it will be if you just tell the story you feel you have to tell regardless of what anyone else thinks. The biggest mistake fans make is assuming that creators are obligated to do what the fans want. The best stories are those that show us something new, something we didn't realize we wanted until we saw it.
That's what Uwe Boll does all the time.

I'd say a little more than hinted at, given that the film ends with a dedication to 9/11 victims in the credits.

^ Yeah. There's good reason why a lot of people are not very sympathetic to Orci.

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.
I don't know, while I agree about a first time Director taking on such a big budget, high profile project, if J.J. has confidence in him, maybe he's up to the challenge.

Makes me wonder if he actually believes in the batshit Nibiru crap as well.

Note the TrekToday headline that went up a little while ago:

http://www.trektoday.com/content/201...-orci-go-solo/

Apparently both Orci and Kurtzman are pursuing independent directing and producing careers in film, though they'll continue to collaborate on TV productions. Kurtzman's already been picked to direct the Venom spinoff from the Amazing Spider-Man franchise, and he has only one prior movie directing credit, a Chris Pine film called People Like Us.

In all honesty, I wouldn't mind Orci directing XIII. Simply because I know there are worse choices.

And strangely enough, this is perhaps the most positive thing I've ever said about Orci.
