Abrams: Trek XI Story Is ‘Incredibly Cool’ October 30, 2006by Anthony Pascale , Filed under: Abrams,STXI Status , trackback
TV Guide has an interview with JJ Abrams that focuses on M:I:3, which is released this week on DVD. However, they do throw in a couple of Trek questions
TVGuide.com: Changing topics, where do you stand on the Star Trek feature? Is there any framework in place, a setting, characters…?
Abrams: The framework is firmly in place, the script is being written now, and we are incredibly enthusiastic about it.
TVGuide.com: Do you have any thoughts yet about going with unknowns versus established TV or film actors?
Abrams: It’s way too early to talk about casting, but the story is incredibly cool. All of us working on it are just giddy about it.
Well it is not much, but that is the first thing he has said to the press about Trek in a couple months. It is in line with TrekMovie.com’s recent update stating the first draft of the script is due shortly. Hopefully Abrams does some more press for the M:I:3 release and we will get a few more nuggets. He also talks to TV Guide about Tom Cruise and the ratings slide for Lost, see TV Guide for the full interview.
