Kurtzman, known for his work on “Hercules: The Legendary Journeys,” “Fringe” and the 2009 “Star Trek,” has also worked with Michael Bay ’86 on several projects, including “The Island,” “Transformers,” “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.” Kurtzman’s directorial debut “People Like Us” was released last year.
The producing and writing duo of Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci is behind some of Hollywood’s biggest blockbuster films, including “Star Trek Into Darkness,” which opens today, and the highly anticipated sequel to “The Amazing Spider-Man.”
Kurtzman and Orci, who are producers of the magician caper “Now You See Me” opening later this month, as well as the sci-fi adaptation “Ender’s Game,” also co-wrote the 2009 “Star Trek” reboot, a project borne of their own childhood love of “Star Trek.”
While fans of the original television series, the first film both of them saw in the theaters was 1982’s “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan,” considered by many to be one of the best in the franchise.
