ALEX KURTZMAN and ROBERTO ORCI
ALEX KURTZMAN and ROBERTO ORCI
TUESDAY, MAY 26 - 7:30PM
At the Writers Guild Theater, 135 S Doheny Dr. 90211

Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci began their work together as innovative storytellers in a Los Angeles-area high school. Separately, penning original adventure tales and making ambitious home movies, they soon joined forces and dreamed of one day bringing their movies to a mass audience.

The two reunited after college to write for the popular television series Hercules and Xena: Warrior Princess, where they quickly became head writers at the age of 23.

In 2003, the two were approached to write for J.J. Abrams wildly popular television spy thriller Alias, and eventually ascended to be executive producers of the show.

Kurtzman and Orci also created the current FOX drama Fringe with Abrams.

In the film sphere, Kurtzman and Orci made a splash with the sci-fi thriller The Island, their feature film debut helmed by Michael Bay. Late 2005 saw the release of The Legend of Zorro, while in 2006, the duo re-teamed with Abrams to write the third installment of Mission: Impossible. 2007 saw the pair write Transformers, a live-action adaptation of the popular animated series.

More recently, the two are the authors of the blockbuster Star Trek, slated for a May, 2009 release with J.J. Abrams directing. The pair has written their own fresh take on the classic show, and are executive producers on the film.

In addition to their writing projects, Kurtzman and Orci are producing a continually growing slate of movies through their Kurtzman/Orci shingle at Dreamworks. The first picture in this series, DJ Carusos Eagle Eye, was released in 2008.  

Their next producing project, The Proposal, stars Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds. The film is directed by Anne Fletcher and is scheduled to open in June, 2009.  Additionally, they are producing Cowboys and Aliens (which they will also write); Nightlife; Deep Sea Cowboys; Atlantis Rising. They are also writing and producing 28th Amendment.
