Trek 3: New Writers Beam Aboard JJ Leaves "Star Wars"?

Badass Digest is reporting that "Thor" and "X-Men: First Class" writers and "Fringe" producers Ashley Edward Miller and Zack Stentz might take over scripting duties on Star Trek 3.

The duo have familiarity with Trek creator Gene Roddenberry's work, having worked on the now defunct cult sci-fi series "Andromeda".

The site is quick to add that Roberto Orci, and Alex Kurtzman, who wrote J.J. Abrams' "Star Trek" '09 and "Star Trek Into Darkness", remain officially attached as the writers of Trek 3.
In fact, Orci and Kurtzman were responsible for Stentz and Miller being considered.

Paramount targeting a 2016 release for the film to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the "Star Trek" franchise.

The same article also suggests that Abrams might be coming back to the big chair on Trek 3 after all. Rumors are aplenty that Abrams might be dropping out of doing "Star Wars: Episode VII" due to a variety of reasons.

Disney/Lucasfilm has denied the talk and say Abrams is enjoying working on the script...
