The website Deadline reports that Roberto Orci has dropped out of directing the upcoming Power Rangers movie due to his prior commitments to direct Star Trek 3. He’ll no longer be exec producer of the film as well. The film is still expected to be released worldwide on July 22, 2016.
Last month Roberto Orci confirmed that the first draft of the screenplay had been completed. Star Trek will be Orci’s first time directing a feature film.
Paramount hope to release the film in time for Star Trek’s 50th birthday in 2016.
