After nearly ten years, the writing/producer team of Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are going their separate ways — related to big screen projects.
In addition Star Trek (2009) and Star Trek Into Darkness, the duo has worked on Mission Impossible III, People Like Us and The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
With more than a dozen projects currently in development, their production company “will most likely be reconfigured to accommodate their separation in the feature arena”, according to Variety.
In addition to writing it with Patrick McKay and John D. Payne, Orci is said to have his sights set on directing the next Star Trek film.
Kurtzman will be working on projects outside of Star Trek, including the Spider-Man spinoff film Venom and a deal with Universal to oversee monster movie franchises, including The Mummy and Van Helsing.
