It might work out, if the casting is good.

I heard about this. I honestly don't know what to think ... I feel that they should be moving forward, but then again, without its creator perhaps Star Trek can only look backward. Still, yes, with decent writing and acting it could be good.

Hello, Entilzah. Actually JJ is Producing, but, isn't neccessarily directing (doesn't mean he isn't, but, it's not a fact).

It could be OK, but, there's alot they can mess up. At least by 2008, the Franchise will have rested for 3 full years.

Hey there.. you wise ole owl! Will be interesting to see how I, and other people, react to different people playing the roles of Star Trek, TOS characters. In the immortal words of Han Solo... "I have a bad feeling about this!". Oh wait.. I think Luke said it to. Oh well....

I read somewhere that the news story may have jumped the gun on this reguarding a young Kirk movie. I'll try to find the source. As for the thought of someone else playing Kirk, it's hard to imagine anybody doing worse than Shatner but never underestimate hollywood. Personally I'd rather see and entire movie about Jar Jar than see anything more about Cowboy Kirk.

Reeves. Please don't tell me! :lol:

That'll be the hard part; finding the right actors. They can't look to Hollywood.

Yes. :lol: He's one of those actors that would be much better suited for modeling.
