Kurtzman & Orci Video Interview

Kurtzman & Orci Video Interview

Collider has a great interview with Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci. In the interview they discussed the preasure they feel for a good sequel to 'Star Trek', Transformers 2, and a few more items listed below

While I can often sum up everything that was talked about, if you’re a fan of director J.J. Abrams “Star Trek”, this is one of those must watch interviews. Especially seven minutes in till the end.

But if you just want to know some highlights…

* They don’t know if J.J. is directing the sequel - he’s still undecided

* They want to finish the sequel script by Christmas

* Paramount wants to make the film as soon as possible

* They’ve been reading what the fans have been saying online

And here’s the big info:

you watched my “Star Trek” video blog with Peter from Slashfilm, we discussed what we wanted to see in a sequel. I brought up what we talked about and asked Bob and Alex what kind of villain we’d get in the sequel. I also asked if they’d set anything up in part two that might pay off in another film. They say they’re debating between “the exploration sci-fi plot where the unknown and nature itself is somehow an adversary or the villain model. That’s an active discussion we’re having right now. In terms of thinking about more than one movie, we want the movie to be self-contained in a way, but we’re discussing the idea of having a couple of threads where if the second movie works, you could pick up into a cohesive whole. No thread more exciting and shocking for me when in “Star Trek III” you realize that Spock grabbed Bones and downloaded his Katra into him. When I saw “Star Trek II” I was like, “What’s going on here?” and two years later, you’re watching it and you’re like “They’re geniuses! They’re geniuses!” So we’re trying to think is there a version of that but again, “Star Trek II” does not rely on that thread, even though it turns out to be a thread. So we’re thinking in those terms.”

What that means is, we might get the “Star Trek” film I so desperately want. I’m tired of the typical “Star Trek” movie villain. The person bent on destruction and not willing to listen to reason. I want the crew of the Enterprise to have to use their ingenuity and skill to solve a big problem and the way Bob and Alex were talking, that might be the direction they’re going. Obviously they haven’t written anything yet, so who knows. But the fact that they’re even putting the idea forward is awesome. (source Collider)
