It's no secret that Paramount Pictures desperately want to get a third 'Star Trek' film into theaters in 2016, to mark the 50th anniversary of the much loved franchise. When 'Star Trek' and 'Into Darkness' director JJ Abrams jumped ship to that other science fiction series, the studio turned to writer Roberto Orci to direct the third picture before he jumped too.
Now, according to a report from BadAssDigest, perhaps we know why. With the success of 'Guardians of the Galaxy' exceeding expectations earlier this year, grossing nearly $800 million worldwide at the box office, Paramount have looked over at Disney with jealous eyes, and have wondered 'why can't Trek be more like Guardians'?
'Star Trek 3' is undoubtedly coming at some point, but whether it moves back to a more cerebral and traditional science fiction, or a glitzy and fashionable take is anyone's guess.
