John Cho recently answered questions on Reddit AMA and was asked about Roberto Orci directing the next Star Trek film.
I’m absolutely confident in Bob. No one knows these characters better than Bob. And no one knows the Star Trek universe better than Bob. I think he’s going to blow people away.
And I don’t know anything about Star Trek 3.
Roberto Orci alongside co-writers J D Payne and Patrick McKay have written the first draft of the screenplay.
Paramount hope to release the film in time for Star Trek’s 50th birthday in 2016.
