In order to deliver a Trek film by the Summer of 2016, Orci is going to be very busy for the next 21 months or so. And apparently this has caused Bob to cut some stuff from his to-do list. In July we reported that he had signed on as an executive producer for a Power Rangers reboot. But now Deadline is reporting that Orci has dropped out of the project “because his Star Trek 3 directing obligation has created a scheduling conflict.”
It’s happening. My fingers are crossed.
