TrekToday is linking to a Variety article (I’d link it direct but it’s got mad subscription foo), which reckons that J.J. Abrams will co-write, produce and direct the eleventh Star Trek film, set for release in 2008. And here’s the biggie: it’s going to be a prequel.
Now, this has been mooted for a long time (even way back when Harve Bennett was doing Trek 6) and we had a big discussion on whether Fred Savage would play a young Kirk. Seems to me that he’s the right age now 🙂
But come on chaps, a prequel… that’s just bandwagon-jumping (and I can’t help thinking of Spy Kids).
