Early last year, we learned that the screenwriting team of Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman were tasked with bringing 'Van Helsing' and 'The Mummy' back to the big screen for Universal Studios. And since then ... silence. But now Orci, while on the road promoting the upcoming film adaptation of 'Ender's Game' (on which he's a producer), spoke more about the projects. Turns out, it seems that what Universal is planning may be bigger than we thought.

Given the increasingly negative press trail that follows 'Star Trek Into Darkness' the farther along we go, and franchise director J.J. Abrams' eventual ship-jump to 'Star Wars,' countless fans have wondered if 'Star Trek' might end up back on the small screen before long. Abrams himself recently refuted the idea, but have franchise writers writers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman gotten the idea back on track?

FOX's time-turning thriller 'Sleepy Hollow' got off to an exceptionally good start this past week in spite of only moderate critical reactions, but the modern headless thriller has really begun to hit the 'Fringe.'

Though J.J. Abrams won't be around to pilot the next episode of the 'Star Trek' franchise as he'll be too busy with 'Star Wars: Episode 7' (he'll just be producing), Paramount seems to want to keep some consistency and has hired Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman to pen 'Star Trek 3.'

Robert Rodriguez is someone who likes to keep busy. On top of the upcoming releases of 'Machete Kills' and 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For,' and his involvement with a 'From Dusk Till Dawn' TV adaptation, he'll also be directing the pilot for a series that will mimic the James Bond films, but give them a Mexican flavor.

Given the success of 'Star Trek' and its upcoming sequel 'Star Trek Into Darkness,' we wouldn't expect either film's stars to follow up with regular TV careers. Yet, shortly following news that Karl Urban had joined FOX's J.J. Abrams-produced drama 'Human,' we've learned that 'Go On' star John Cho has booked yet another NBC role for upcoming pilot 'Sleepy Hollow,' written by 'Star Trek' writer Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, but how long will Cho stick around?
