Kurtzman And Orci On Upcoming Movies

Although still editing Star Trek XI, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci have other irons in the fire.

As reported by Comingsoon.net, Eagle Eye, the first feature film from a new production company set up by Kurtzman and Orci, will release in September. Eagle Eye, an action-thriller about two strangers on the run from the FBI, stars Shia LaBeouf (Transformers) and and Michelle Monaghan (Mission: Impossible III).

Orci spoke about producing Eagle Eye. "This is the first thing we were lucky enough to get to produce under our K/O banner at DreamWorks, so it's our first sort of movie as producers. Steven [Spielberg] just kind of tapped us with, 'Okay, producers, produce this thing. Hire writers, develop a script, use the kernel of the idea that I like and if you're lucky, we'll shoot it when it's perfect.'"

According to Kurtzman, "Steven actually developed the idea like ten years ago. It was something that had been brewing in his mind. The world had not quite caught up to what he had in his head at that point, and I think time took its course, and ultimately, the movie felt very timely now and it felt like the right time to make it. When Steven brought it to us and said 'Here's this idea and what do you guys think?', it was a matter of figuring out how to take that and run with it."

Kurtzman spoke about plans to promote Star Trek XI at the upcoming Comic-Con in San Diego later this month. "We are trying to get our act together here in the last moments," he said. "We're so focused on editing the movie that we've forgotten about promoting it. We're not sure what we're going to release it with. We're trying to figure it out. We're going to be there for 'Fringe' and 'Eagle Eye' and for other things. We're all going to be there, so I'm sure we'll figure out something before we get there.

Re: Kurtzman And Orci On Upcoming Movies

Interesting, I had heard that there were no plans for any Star Trek XI stuff at Comicon, which is only weeks away. I'm curious to find out what they come up with at the last moment.

Gee that's encouraging. Isn't this the whole problem Trek has had in the past, lack of promotion?

No wonder we havent seen so much as a peep out of them regarding further trailers or clips or tidbits. I personally think that while all the secrecy and stuff is fun, there's a point at which it's getting old and they need to start spilling at least some beans without spoiling all of it for us. Me not knowing anything for this long is going to get me a "okay, I'm way past caring" mood. I could handle it if I knew they were releasing it this Christmas, but considering the movie is a whole 5 months past that... that's not good.

I have to agree with everything you said. There reaches a point, I think, where the complete secrecy surrounding this film could work against it to some degree. With the film moved back five months after Christmas, I really think that we need a slightly longer teaser NOW, then a full trailer around January.

Whether that will happen is anyone's guess. But some kind of promotion is in order here, to keep interest alive.

I wouldn't be to concerned. While Kurtzman and Orci may have been wrapped up in post production, I'm sure the marketing department of Paramount hasn't forgot. There is still 10 months until the release -- we'll get the onslaught of marketing don't fret.
