The script for 'Star Trek 3' is nearing completion.

Roberto Orci, who is writing the script for the new flick alongside John D. Payne and Patrick McKay, confirmed an initial draft of the script has been completed and is set to be sent to bosses at Paramount, the studio behind the franchise.

The 41-year-old recently expressed an interest in directing the film, telling Collider: ''I don't want to count my chickens before they hatch. The studio has yet to even read the script. I'm in the middle of writing it, with the talented team of [John D.] Payne and [Patrick] McKay.

''They are true Star Trek fans, as well. So, I can't even think anything about the future until I give them a script and they greenlight it. Until that happens, everything else is just a rumour.''

Orci thinks he is a unique position to assume the role, saying: ''Having seen one of the best guys in the business [J\.J\. Abrams] direct two of them already, and to have seen it from the vantage point of a producer too, I know where a lot of the challenges are and where a lot of the fun is.''

'Star Trek 3' is expected to hit cinema screens in 2016.
