Trek talk follow up


Seems some of the information in the last article about the new Star Trek XI film was not completely accurate. It appears that the man behind the lens of MI:III is not jumping in to the directors chair, yet.

"The whole thing was reported entirely without our cooperation," says director J.J. Abrams with a hint of regret. "People learned that I was producing a Star Trek film, that I had an option to direct it, they hear rumors of what the thing was going to be and ran with a story that is not entirely accurate."

What story are they going to pursue? "We've made a pact not to discuss any specifics" So it seems the whole Academy days idea is out the door. The movie might not even contain know cast or characters.
