Star Trek XI!

J.J. Abrams is directing/producing. Shatner and Nimoy may or may be involved, but it seems more likely than not they'll have some bit part as themselves in it.

Apparently the story will focus on different points in Kirk's life, either leading up to or showing his command of the Enterprise.

It's been greenlit by Paramount and is going through pre-production/casting with rampant rumors over who will be who.

Rumored to be interested or approach:
Kirk: Matt Damon
Spock: Adrien Brody (???),
McCoy: Gary Sinise, Daniel Craig
Scotty: James McAvoy
Sulu: Daniel Day Kim (Jin from Lost)

and Greg Grunberg because he will be in anything JJ will ever do.

What do you guys think of it? Will this be like a Lost-type Star Trek since MI-3 was like Alias without Jennifer Garner? There's gotta be some Trekkies out there happy about this.

great site for anything Trek XI: http://trekmovie.com

Gary Sinise as Bones - holy shit that's a match made in heaven.
























Will Odo be in it?

After Nemesis, the poor Star Trek ship sank. It would be lovely to see them revive the franchise!

There have been questions about that, maybe they could use that "de-aging effect" used in X-Men III on Kirk and Spock and place it between the events of The Undiscovered Country and Generations.

The bulk of it will be in the past though.

"Team America World Police" refference:

MATT DAMON!!!



Anyhow, I really think they should let the whole Star Trek franchise die for the time being. Give it about a decade or so to cool off and then bring it back all fresh a la Next Generation...

Same goes for Star Wars, do we really need a TV show about bounty hunters and clones? Really?

If you haven't heard already, Leonard Nimoy will be back as Spock and Zachary Quinto (Sylar from 'Heroes') will play a younger Spock.

Anton Yelchin (not familiar with his work) is gonna be Chekhov and they're looking to recast the rest of the original crew with unknowns/lesser known actors. The villain and some minor characters might be played by bigger stars though (the big rumor was Russell Crowe as the villain and Tom Cruise or Tom Hanks as Captain Pike, but I doubt any of them will happen).

What say you, fellas?

It will be good hopefully. to ZQ as young Spock. I saw them both together at Comic-con... someone asked Nimoy why he would want to be involved in this and he said it seemed the logical thing to do. LOL He liked the casting for his younger self, and they said yeah they definitely don't have a Kirk yet and even asked us for suggestions.
I'll look forward to this.

I actually had a dream last night that I heard the audio for a trailer for Star Trek XI. It had Quinto and Nimoy both talking to Kirk as Spok, and it had a voice for Kirk that at first didn't really sound much like Kirk should sound like, but the more he talked, and keeping in mind how young he was, it started to feel more right, almost like the early days of the original Star Trek series withShatner.

But it was a dream. Oh well.

“Moriarty” is a fucking moron. Yeah, time travel/altering timelines; that sure is something fresh and bold for the Star Trek universe
