For all the recent talk surrounding Star Trek 3, there’s still no official word on who will direct the first post-J.J. Abrams installment in the rebooted franchise. Most of us expect it to be Roberto Orci. The writer and producer of the earlier films has long been linked to the job, and is obviously working on the film in some capacity, even though this would mark his first time in the director’s chair, in any director’s chair. One star, John Cho, shares this stance, and not only expects Orci to helm the picture, but also to do a bang up job.
Cho, as you’re probably well aware, plays Hikaru Sulu in the new films, taking over the role from his predecessor George Takei. The actor, who co-stars the new ABC sitcom Selfie with Doctor Who alum (and Guardians of the Galaxy star) Karen Gillan, did an AMA session on Reddit recently, and the subject of Orci came up.
