Screenwriters Talk ‘Star Trek 2’

Screenwrtiers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman were at a recent WGA screening of Star Trek, and spoke about the sequel. Roberto Orci said, “We would never do a remake. It will be some time in the five-year mission. But that is a question. Should we pick them up immediately the next day or should it be later? We are still discussing that.”

Alex Kurtzman said, “I think our idea on this is that the first of any series is about them coming together or the formation. I couldn’t really tell you what Jeff Bridges was doing in Iron Man, but it doesn’t matter at all because it is all about Iron Man becoming Iron Man. Whereas I think sequels are very much about the villain. Because while [in the first one] the villain serves to bring the crew together, the second one I think has to be a true challenging of what that family is about. That is why Wrath of Khan was so amazing. Khan tested each one of them and ultimately asked for the ultimate sacrifice, and that is why that movie held up so well.”
