Spock found; Looking for Kirk

by | July 26, 2007 | Comments

Director JJ Abrams has announced at the Comic-Con Paramount panel that Leonard Nimoy and Zachary Quinto will both be playing the role of Spock in his Star Trek prequel. Since the latest in this long-running franchise will center on a young James T. Kirk and Mr. Spock, either a flashback (flash forward?) or time travel must be involved. He also told the attendants that he’s still looking of his Kirk. More reports from our team on the ground are forthcoming.

Tentatively titled Star Trek XI, the movie will begin filming sometime this fall for a theatrical release on Christmas Day 2008.
