Star Trek Into Darkness
Those hoping for a 2011 release date for the sequel to J.J. Abrams "Star Trek" have to wait a bit longer. Paramount announced a tentative June 29th, 2012 for the opening of Star Trek XII. As reported by ComingSoon.com, it's the only movie scheduled for that time frame so far. We're pretty excited that Paramount and Bad Robot didn't decide on a quick turnaround. The sequel needs time to be made right. Plus, we're pretty sure that J.J., Roberto Orci, and Alex Kurtzman have lots on their plates.
According to a report from Wonderwall.msn.com, The Shat and J.J. recently "did lunch" at Spago (we made that last part up) and talked about The Shat returning to Trekdom. Hmmm, we love The Shat, but we're not sure who we feel about shoehorning him into Star Trek XII.
What do you think? Leave your comments below.
William Shatner is in talks to return to the world of Star Trek, despite attacking director J.J. Abrams for leaving him out of his 2009 blockbuster prequel.
Harlan Ellison and his dispute over "The City on the Edge of Forever" episode of TOS is a story of Star Trek lore. In fact, Harlan recently settled with CBS / Paramount over the issue of unpaid royalties for an undisclosed sum. Now, the famous Scifi author has made it clear on his web bbs. (yup, we said bbs)
As reported by ComicBookMovie.com, Ellison wrote...
Some headline, huh? Not that this isn't obvious... Anyway, one of our favorite Character's from Star Trek XI was the new Captain Pike played by Bruce Greenwood.
In a recent interview with the EOnline.com, Zoe Saldana reports that she received a call about the next Star Trek flick and "They were calling to see where we were going to be and how my schedule is next year."
She smiled, "Just that was worth me doing a cartwheel when I got the phone call, because I cannot wait to put on the suit and go back to the Enterprise, take my shirt off and be with all those yummy guys."
In a recent phone interivew with MTV Movie Blog, 'Star Trek' director J.J. Abrams talks about Star Trek XII needing to "evolve" and not become an "over the top, polemic, on-the-nose alegory".
Whew, we had to look a few of those up. Anyway, it's good to hear J.J. reassure us Trek fans that we're not in store for just any sequel.
More Star Trek XII news hits the web as we get closer to the Star Trek XI Blu-ray / DVD release. It makes since to publicize a future movie while it's predecessor gets ready to make a killing on home video. The only problem we're seeing is; that there isn't much actual news being released. We loved Star Trek XI and we are really looking forward to Star Trek XII but, all of the new "news" consists of of maybe(s), could-be(s), and we'll see(s).
As reported by Comingsoon.net, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman are hot commodities right now. Not only are they responsible for our beloved franchise, but they seem to be writing just about everything else in Hollywood.
As reported byMSN TV, Leonard Nimoy doesn't see any need for Original Spock to return in Star Trek XII. "Although, if they called me, I'd be happy to have a conversation about it." he explains.
