JJ Abrams Says Beam Me Up!
After months and months (and months and months…) of speculation, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that JJ Abrams is taking the helm and directing the 11th Star Trek big screen outing (he’d been attached as producing and possibly writing for a while).
The plot supposedly revolves around Spock and Kirk’s first meeting at Star Fleet Academy, and their first space mission. As for casting, there were rumours that Abrams was after Matt Damon for Kirk and has even gone as far as to get Shatner’s blessing for the casting… But who for Spock?… Well, there is the obvious choice… 😉
