Fringe writing duo Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz are reportedly boarding the third Star Trek movie as scribes.
Per Badass Digest:
Alex Kurtzman and Bob Orci are still on as producers. I heard that they were instrumental in making the decision about going after Stentz and Miller. What their day-to-day involvement moving forward will be I couldn’t say.
Keep in mind this isn’t a done deal, so it’s possible that someone else could end up getting the gig. And there’s no guarantee they’re the final writers on the project. But as of right now it’s Stentz and Miller’s job to lose. And since Paramount wants this movie out in 2016 to mark the 50th anniversary of Star Trek, expect work to begin on it ASAP.
