Orci & Kurtzman "Multitask", Working On Star Trek XII During Lunch

Orci & Kurtzman "Multitask" Working On Star Trek XII During Lunch

The writing duo of Robert Orci & Alex Kurtzman are a hot commodity in Hollywood these days.  Working on "Aliens & Cowboys" plus the new "Hawaii Five-O" television show and several other projects on top of writing the sequel to J.J. Abrams's "Star Trek" has the writers' days "regimented by the hour".  According to an interview MTV News at SDCC Orci & Kurtzman are spending time on their various work sets writing the next installment of Star Trek.

"Our [work] days are regimented by the hour, it's the only way to get through it," Kurtzman explained. "The good news is that on [the set of whatever we're working on] we can step into the trailer and do work on 'Star Trek.'" Orci added, "It's been kind of a noon to 2 kind of thing for some reason. Lunch is nice."

The two were unsurprisingly tight lipped about the upcoming sequel.  No news about Khan or if Harry Mudd would be making an appearance, they did say though that they're making "significant progress" and that all Enterprise crew members will be in the picture from start to finish.  I wonder if this includes Lt. Leslie?

"Now that we've set up everybody-- there were new characters in the last one, so we really want to focus in on them," Orci said. "For example Scotty, who you met at the end of the last movie, who [was] so important to the crew but had the shortest screen time, now is going to be in the movie from the very beginning. In fact, the whole crew is in it from the beginning."

One interesting tidbit that Orci & Kurtzman did reveal was the new movie's focus will be on the main characters, first & foremost. 

"Now the whole family is there and you want to focus on them first. Before you worry too much about new characters, make sure you have them taken care of."
