J.J. Abrams to Produce AND Direct New "Trek"

by | February 26, 2007 | Comments

We all kinda knew this was coming, didn’t we? Although he’s been attached as a producer for a few months, J.J. Abrams will also direct Paramount’s next "Star Trek" permutation. Cool.

Apparently the plot WILL revolve around the younger versions of James T. Kirk and his pal Spock as they become friends at Starfleet Academy and head off on an adventure together. One can only assume that the rest of the "Trek" crew will also appear as younger folks.

So the deal is finally sealed; Abrams will be at the (younger) Enterprise helm, and I do believe he’ll be working from a screenplay by Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, the guys who penned "The Island," "The Legend of Zorro," "Mission Impossible 3," and the upcoming "Transformers."
