The Scoop on Star Trek
Tuesday, August 14, 2007

A post especially for my husband, so I can get him to read this blog.

The new Star Trek movie is being directed by J.J. Abram's (whose Bad Robot is responsible for Alias and Lost; he directed Mission Impossible III ) and will star SylarZachary Quinto and Leonard Nimoy as Spock. Release date is Christmas Day, 2008.

Set before "The Original Series" Kirk and Spock are newly graduated Cadets fresh from Starfleet Academy and are sent on their first space mission.
In other words, the script isn't finished yet- this sounds more like a pitch than a fully formed script to me!

You might not be aware that J.J. Abrams started out as a writer, responsible for films such as Forever Young, Regarding Henry, and Armageddon.

Script by Alex Kurtzman and and Robert Orci (Transformers, Mission Impossible III, The Island, Xena: Warrior Princess... perhaps we shouldn't mention the last one)

Scheduled to start filming Nov. 5; so far only two actors are officially cast.

That is all.
