After two successful films of the completely envisioned Star Trek universe, it appears there has been some issues with the third upcoming installment. First the original director, Roberto Orci, stepped down last year and was replaced by Justin Lin of Fast and Furious fame.
And now there is apparently a completely new script being written just weeks before pre-production begins. Writer Simon Pegg explained the situation saying that they are trying to bring back the spirit of the original TV show, and that the studio (Paramount) wanted something similar to Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy in regards to tone.
Star Trek 3 (not the official title) is currently scheduled to be released on July 8th 2016.
