Entertainment Weekly caught up with Lost creator, J.J. Abrams, who spoke about his involvement in an 11th Star Trek movie. He confirmed that a draft to a script has been finished, although he wasn't clear on when the film might be released.
Early reports on the plot of the film suggest that it will focus on the young, post-Starfleet Academy days of James T. Kirk and Mr. Spock, but Abrams wouldn't specify. Still, he assured Entertainment Weekly that it's a story that even non-Trekkers can enjoy. ''On the one hand, for people who love Star Trek, the fix that they will get will be really satisfying,'' he says. "For people who've never seen it or know it vaguely, I think they will enjoy it equally, because the movie does not require you to know anything about Star Trek. I would actually prefer [that] people don't know the series, because I feel like they will come to it with an open mind."
There's no word on a director or casting yet, but Abrams is anxious to move forward. "I can't wait to do this," he says. "It is an absolute thrill to work on this project. We really are still like, 'How the hell are we able to do this?'"
