Remember that story about Harlan Ellison possibly working with J.J. Abrams on future Trek? Well, apparently Ellison wasn’t too happy about the way it was worded on SCI FI Wire, so he contact them to set the record straight – and threaten the correspondent (tongue-in-cheek, I think…)
Author Harlan Ellison – well known partly for his prolific writing, partly for his litigiousness, and partly for his vocality – and writer of one of the best known Star Trek episodes “City On The Edge Of Forever”, has said on his web site (you have to go back to a post on November 21st, but word is only getting out now) that he’d be open to working with “the inordinately-talented J.J. Abrams” on more Star Trek. It probably would never happen, but it could be interesting. Whether Paramount would let him anywhere near the project is another matter, since he sued Paramount earlier this year over revenues from derivative works from his original script.
