Hey all you Trekkies out there, there may be yet another reason to keep the conventions going. A while back we had reported on a rumor that Paramount Pictures was considering, or working on, getting together another Star Trek film (here). In our report we mentioned that the film would be a prequel to the original series and would be titled something like Star Trek: Academy. The character T'Pol (Jolene Blalock) was repeatedly suggested to star in the next film.
However, now we have received another rumor from 'milo' who claims that not all of the details were entirely correct.
New Star Trek Rumors
According to 'milo' we can forget about T'Pol and all the young actors unless Paramount decides to mix some old drafts of the script with the new. Here is the report sent over on Star Trek below:
Long Time Reader, First Time Writer, Blahdey, Blah, Blah….
I just worked as a stuntman on a film called “Honor”, by David Worth, starring Jason Barry and Roddy Piper. TV actress Linda Park was also in the film. She was in the TV show “Enterprise” playing Hoshi Sato.
Have I got some gossip for you? Potentially, ‘encouraging’ gossip. I was reading on a few sites that the plan for the next Star Trek movie is to do it as a prequel with young Starfleet commanders. I don’t know if that’s true, or was true, but it’s not anymore. The latest is that the new film is more of a sequel than anything else. SO WHATEVER YOU’VE BEEN READING OR REPORTING – FORGET IT. IT’S ALL CHANGED.
The current script – I ASSUME ‘ONE’ OF MANY - apparently has events set in what is called a “Mirror” Universe. It will enable Trek actors past and present to play roles, including William Shatner. Apparently Shatner was in talks to do a guest role on Enterprise, but it didn’t work out. Why? Apparently he wanted a) more money b) would rather do Trek films. Solution? The ideas for the episode of the “Enterprise” episode he was going to do will now be incorporated into a movie. Yep, Captain kirk’s back - SOMEHOW. The actress wasn’t unsure of her involvement or her show’s cast’s involvement but said she “thinks” it’ll be Shatner, Captain Picard and maybe Archer.
Sounds like it’s quite a WHILES OFF anyway.
Also, Can I put a plug in for Michael Keusch’s SHADOWS OF THE PAST. It’s a treat. It is Steven Seagal’s latest. I tell you, Steven is fantastic in this – I’m not exaggerating when I say this could be the one to return him to form. It is a War movie, and quite different to what you’re use to seeing him in. The visuals are also impressive.
One more chance to get William Shatner into a Trek movie huh? I think it would be a bit awkward if Paramount did try to pull this off, but then again I am not part of the Trekkie consensus (loved Kahn and Voyage).
