Comment: What does LOST and Star Trek have in common? Okay, besides the 47s. The creator of LOST is in talks to take over the Star Trek Franchise. Read below…
((Young Kirk. Young Spock. Mr. Lost.
Those are the components Paramount Pictures has assembled to revive its sputtering Star Trek franchise.
A new big-screen movie, apparently featuring the early adventures of Trek forefathers James T. Kirk and Spock, and boasting the handiwork of Lost creator J.J. Abrams, is being primed for a 2008 release.
The studio wouldn't confirm the plot points, but did say Friday that the 39-year-old Abrams will produce, direct and cowrite the untitled project. His collaborators will be familiar names, to Abrams: Producers Damon Lindelof and Bryan Burk, both from Lost; and writers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, both from Mission: Impossible III, the upcoming Tom Cruise sequel that Abrams helmed. ))
This is good news indeed, As long as they can keep Shatner and Rick Berman out of the creative process. Keep in mind there might be some legal battles coming up over this, because Havre Bennett also had a concept similar to this as well.I wonder what Ron Moore thinks of this move…
