Fanboys is a film about a group of hardcore Star Wars fans who travel across the country to steal a pre-release copy of Episode I: The Phantom Menace so their terminally ill friend can see it before he dies. Although the film is about Star Wars fans, Star Trek makes an appearance in the form of original Captain Kirk himself William Shatner. Actor Jay Baruchel describes the Shatner cameo to MTV Movie News:
Captain Kirk? Chalk that one up to the great ‘Star Trek’ wars…there’s a big-ass battle between all the Trekkies and all the fanboys. We fight with lirpa, which is the Vulcan weapon with the sickle on the top and mound on the bottom.
I wonder who wins? Let’s hope they at least got the rights to the Gerald Fried composed music from "Amok Time".
The film also stars Sam Huntington (Jimmy Olsen in Superman Returns) and Veronica Mars herself, Kristen Bell. There are also a number of Star Wars star cameos including Carrie Fisher and Billy Dee Williams. Fanboys comes out this August.
