It's been months since we've heard an update on the next Star Trek movie but last night at we got this little tidbit from screenwriters Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman. Sounds like the next film is part one of two.


Last night at the Wrath Of Con party at Comic Con we got a few seconds with Trek and Transformers screenwriters Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, and eked out a little Trek update for everyone.

I know there was a meeting about Star Trek a little while a go, have there been any more additional meetings at all? Any little update you can give us about the next film?

Roberto Orci: Nothing was decided [at the last meeting]. It was really about, hmmm. You know what, I'll give you a tidbit. [They said to us] 'We thought maybe you could do that as like 2 and 3.'

Think about what it means! Could the second movie end on a cliffhanger that will directly lead into the third? Will there be a story arc that spans the next two films? Also if they are trying to incorporate an idea into both 2 and 3 this could mean that we could have a third movie quickly after the next. It's simply exciting that they are thinking that far into the future.



Splendid idea, considering how wonderfully this worked with The Matrix and Pirates of the Caribbean!
