Sci-Fi Storm

Trek XI details finally given

by on Oct.10, 2007, under General News

TrekMovie.com has an interview with Roberto Orci, who is working on the script for the upcoming eleventh movie installment of Star Trek. He gives details on the characters, some casting, and more. It looks like it focuses on the Big Three of Kirk, Spock, and McCoy (with Spock being a focal point of the story), but Chekov and Uhura have been cast as well, with Anton Yelchin (Alpha Dog) and Zoe Saldana (Premium) respectively. It does seem that they are squeezing a few too many of the original characters in…and I head rumors of former Stargate Atlantis regular Paul McGillion may be up for the role of Scotty. Unlike the late James Doohan, he was actually born in Scotland, although he moved to Canada when he was 2, so he also puts on the accent when needed. Update 10/10: The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Chris Pine (Smokin’ Aces) is in talks to take the role of Kirk, and Eric Bana (The Hulk) has already signed as the villain, Nero.

    Get rid of the lot!

    I wonder why they are so set on making a series about the classic characters with new actors. I don’t want more trek crap close to our time, I want FUTURE – set some stories after TNG for christ sake!
