Over the past decade, the name pairing “Kurtzman and Orci” has become a loaded phrase: it connotes blockbuster-sized sci-fi and superhero properties which often make loads of dough, but which aren’t always realized in a manner that fans love. Now Kurtzman and Orci are breaking up their big-screen writing and producing partnership so that each can focus on directing. More important, however, is that Roberto Orci is now working hard to take the director’s chair of Star Trek 3.

Variety has a big piece on Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci breaking up their big-screen partnership.

The real news, however, is that Orci has been lobbying to direct Star Trek 3, which he is also writing with with Patrick McKay and John D. Payne. The report is that JJ Abrams and Bad Robot are in favor of him getting the job, as are David Ellison and Skydance Productions, the chief financiers.

Paramount, however, evidently isn’t ready to take the plunge just yet. And no wonder, as Orci doesn’t have a feature under his belt as a director. Hard to blame the studio, too, as fans don’t like Orci’s contributions to Trek. He’s not going to be a popular choice to direct, especially given that the release of Star Trek 3 will be timed to coincide with the franchise’s 50th anniversary in 2016.

Borys Kit of THR, meanwhile, paints Orci as being just a bit further along in the process to get the job:

Yes, Kurtzman and Orci are splitting up. But more interestingly, Orci is in early talks to direct STAR TREK 3. No negotiations yet but…

Kurtzman and Orci will continue to work together for television, and some of the projects the two already have in development together, such as Spider-Man 3, will continue.

But Kurtzman is already set to direct Venom for Sony, and at Universal he’s working on revivals of monster franchises such as The Mummy and Van Helsing. With all that, and Orci lobbying for Star Trek 3, both of the guys could be busy for a long time on those projects. That’s good news for those who, let’s put this nicely, don’t love their approach to fan properties. At this point I’m willing to cut loose my interest in this incarnation of Star Trek if it means the duo split up and step aside as screenwriters for future series.

Burbank, CA and San Francisco, CA, October 30, 2012 – Continuing its strategy of delivering exceptional creative content to audiences around the world, The Walt Disney Company (NYSE: DIS) has agreed to acquire Lucasfilm Ltd. in a stock and cash transaction.

The final consideration will be subject to customary post-closing balance sheet adjustments.

Disney to make new ‘Star Wars’ movies

By Associated Press, Updated: Tuesday, October 30, 3:45 PM

LOS ANGELES — A decade since George Lucas said “Star Wars” was finished on the big screen, a new trilogy under new ownership is destined for theaters after The Walt Disney Co. announced Tuesday that it was buying Lucasfilm Ltd. from him for $4.05 billion.

The seventh movie, with a working title of “Episode 7,” is set for release in 2015. Episodes 8 and 9 will follow. The trilogy will continue the story of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Princess Leia beyond “Return of the Jedi,” the third film released and the sixth in the saga. After that, Disney plans a new “Star Wars” movie every two or three years. Lucas will serve as creative consultant in the new movies.
