Robert Orci will be directing Star Trek 3, and the good news is that the film will be set in space.

Star Trek Into Darkness was generally not that well received (at least among Trekkers), with the movie featuring Benedict Cumberbatch as a terrorist on Earth.

Now Orci says Star Trek is going back to its roots, and the current characters will more resemble the originals.

Via Humans From Earth podcast:

In [Star Trek Into Darkness] they set out finally where the original series started. The first two films – especially the 2009 [Star Trek] – was an origin story. It was about them coming together. So they weren’t the characters they were in the original series. They were growing into them and that continues on in the second movie.  So in this movie they are closer than they are to the original series characters that you have ever seen. They have set off on their five-year mission. So their adventure is going to be in deep space."

Paramount recently let it be known they intend on releasing Star Trek 3 in 2016.
