INTERVIEW” ‘Transformers’ writers Robert Orci and Alex Kurtzman


Writers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman have a lot of experience writing for franchises that have fanatic fanbases, having gotten their start on the popular cult TV shows "Hercules" and "Xena" before moving over to J.J. Abrams' popular spy show "Alias." In the last few years, they've written a number of prominent summer movies including Michael Bay's sci-fi flick The Island and then teaming with J.J. for his first movie Mission: Impossible III. 

Superhero Hype! had a great opportunity to talk to the duo about their latest movie with Bay, a little thing called Transformers, and find out how they got involved in reinventing Star Trek from the ground up with J.J. Abrams. They had some great insights into working with Michael Bay on one of the summer's most anticipated films and how it compares to working with J.J., making it fairly clear that Transformers and Star Trek are both in really good hands. If you're a would-be writer looking into doing a bit of genre writing for TV or movies, you can also learn a lot from these guys.
