Why Did 'Star Trek' 3 Lose Its Director?
Roberto Orci is out as the director of the next Star Trek movie and even though no one knows why, no one seems that upset either.By Ben Lawson | December 6, 2014
The reason for Roberto Orci leaving the director's seat for the next "Star Trek" movie has still not been confirmed, but whatever the reason, everyone seems pretty cool with it.
Orci had a producing credit on the last two "Star Trek" movies and was set to take the helm for J.J. Abrams after he left the franchise to work on the new "Star Wars" movies.
But Friday, Deadline reported that Orci was out as director and he will stay on the project as a producer.
