After the many sins of ‘Star Trek Into Darkness,’ Paramount seems dead set on righting the course of the ‘Star Trek’ franchise with ‘Star Trek 3.’ They ditched controversial director Roberto Orci, hired the great Simon Pegg to co-write the screenplay with Doug Jung, and now, word that hit the internet suggesting that the film will contain three new female characters ... and a villain fit for Bryan Cranston.

Here’s even more good news for you regarding the previously troubled production of ‘Star Trek 3’: now that ‘Fast and Furious’ director Justin Lin has taken over directing duties following the departure of Roberto Orci, the upcoming ‘Trek’ installment has just beamed itself up a new writer to course-correct the screenplay.

A couple of weeks ago, we learned that ‘Star Trek’ writer and producer Roberto Orci would no longer be making his directorial debut on ‘Star Trek 3.’ Shortly after, ‘Fast and Furious’ franchise helmer Justin Lin was tapped to direct the film, while rumors swirled that Orci had been booted over issues with the script. Those rumors seem to have been confirmed now, as Orci has revealed that he is only acting as a producer on ‘Star Trek 3' and nothing else.

A few weeks back, Roberto Orci parted ways with ‘Star Trek 3,’ leaving the director’s chair vacant. While rumors about the reasons for Orci’s departure abounded (the script, clashes with Paramount), there was a much bigger concern: Who would step up to direct the third ‘Star Trek’ film, which is scheduled for release next year during the original series’ 50th anniversary? The answer is ‘Fast and Furious’ franchise director Justin Lin.

trueBoy, when they named the last ‘Star Trek’ movie ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ they weren’t kidding. The finished film received decent reviews from critics, but did only so-so in theaters, and quickly became Trekkies’ least-favorite movie in the franchise...

Last Friday news broke that writer Roberto Orci will no longer be making his directorial debut on ‘Star Trek 3.’ The sequel, which will be released the same year as the television show’s 50th anniversary in 2016, is now without a director as Paramount seeks to replace Orci. Although no details were given at the time, online reports suggest that Orci was booted due to the studio’s unhappiness with his script and vision. But what does the notoriously contentious Orci have to say about all of this? The former director popped up on a ‘Star Trek’ fan site to leave a few messages.

It’s been a while since we’ve heard much about ‘Star Trek 3,’ and it seems like that might be for a good reason: the upcoming sequel has just lost director Roberto Orci, who also co-wrote the first two films with partner Alex Kurtzman. Orci was initially given the job to replace J.J. Abrams when Abrams departed to direct ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens,’ and the third ‘Star Trek’ installment would have been Orci’s directorial debut. It looks like the sequel needs to beam itself up a new director, and fast.

While 'Star Trek' alum Leonard Nimoy make an appearance in both 'Star Trek' and 'Star Trek Into Darkness,' William Shatner, another one of the most recognized figures from days of 'Trek' past, hasn't, but this could all change for 'Star Trek 3.' Roberto Orci, who's been attached to the project for some time following J.J. Abrams' move to 'Star Wars: Episode 7,' reportedly wants to reunite these two buddies onscreen for the third installment.

We've been hearing buzz about some of Paramount's major plans for a while now, but the studio finally confirmed their 2016 release line-up recently at CineEurope (the European version of CinemaCon, a major theater convention), and included on the list are lots of sequels, like 'Beverly Hills Cop 4,' 'Transformers 5,' and -- wait, what's this? -- 'Paranormal Activity 5,' which has been bumped back once again.
