The co-writer and director of the next Star Trek movie, Roberto Orci, has been talking about his plan for the film...

Very early work has begun on the new Star Trek movie it seems, with screenwriter and now director Roberto Orci offering one or two hints as to where the new movie will go. Turns out, the answer to that is deep space.

Chatting to the Humans From Earth podcast, Orci said that "in this movie they are closer than they are to the original characters that you have ever seen". He added that "they have set off on their five year mission. So their adventure is going to be in deep space". See: told you.

Paramount is expected to release the film in the summer of 2016, to tie into the 50th anniversary of Star Trek. The main cast, led by Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto, are expected to return. Orci will be making his feature directorial debut with the movie.
