Roberto Orci announced this week that plans are set for a third Star Trek film that will feature the JJ Abrams cast fully involved in their five year mission. And while not much else is currently known about this next film, its release is set to coincide with the science fiction franchise’s 50th anniversary in 2016.
Orci revealed that this third film will find the Trek crew in deep space and immersed in their legendary “five year mission,” which is in stark contrast to the Earth-centric plots of the previous two installments. Orci also states that this time out our cast will be much more similar to the iconic characters we know and love, now that their course for space exploration has been set in motion.
