Justin Lin Confirms Star Trek 3 Title

30 June 2015 7:29 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As he gears up to shoot Paramount and Skydance’s third Star Trek, director Justin Lin has simultaneously declared his love for all things Trekkie and revealed the actual title of his anticipated threequel: Star Trek Beyond.

Captioning the first image from the set, of the iconic emblem, Lin “Let the next Starfleet voyage begin! #StarTrekBeyond #Llap.” Of course, that second hashtag is a reference to the late, lamented Leonard Nimoy, who portrayed Spock in the original series and films. It stands for his catchphrase, “Live long and prosper.”

It’s been a long road to production for Star Trek Beyond. Producer Roberto Orci lobbied the studios to write and direct the pic, and they eventually gave him the green-light to write a treatment last year, only to kick him to the curb »

'Star Trek 3' Title Confirmed, First Photo from Set Revealed

29 June 2015 4:19 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

At one point it was thought Star Trek 3 would be titled Star Trek Forever, but then Star Trek Beyond become the go-to title for the upcoming film and today director Justin Lin took to Twitter to confirm the title and release the first set picture from the now-shooting sequel. "Let the next Starfleet voyage begin," posted Lin in his tweet along with a Starfleet patch. One could assume a lot from this as it most likely (and hopefully I might add) means we will officially begin the iconic five-year mission of the starship Enterprise to explore strange new worlds, seek out new life and new civilizations and boldly go where no man has gone before. Enough of Earth already, let's keep things moving in space shall wec Star Trek Beyond is set for a July 8, 2016 release.

Star Trek 3 to Start Filming as Zachary Quinto Gets in Character

25 June 2015 8:43 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Justin Lin's Star Trek 3 is set to open in theaters July 8, 2016, so the film should start shooting any day now. Star Zachary Quinto, who plays Spock in the franchise, gave fans a behind-the-scenes glimpse at his own preparation for the shoot as he gets into character. Despite popular fan-fiction to the contrary, Quinto does not spend his days sporting Spock's signature bowl cut, arched eyebrows, and pointed ears; it takes a fair bit of manscaping (Vulcanscaping?) to do the character justice. Star Simon Pegg has joined the screenwriting team for this untitled installment of the franchise and will join Quinto in front of the camera as well, along with returning stars Chris Pine, Zoe SaldanaKarl UrbanJohn Cho, and Anton Yelchin. Check out Quinto's behind-the-scenes image as he preps to shoot Star Trek 3: someone is preparing to emerge. A photo posted by Zachary Quinto (@zacharyquinto »

Director Justin Lin talks Star Trek 3, says it’s “all new and fresh”

6 June 2015 11:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With production on Star Trek 3 set to get underway later this month, Justin Lin (Fast & Furious 6) has been speaking to Deadline about taking over the director’s chair from J.J. Abrams and setting out to create strange new worlds and civilizations with next year’s threequel.

“As great as J.J.’s films were, there’s still a lot to be mined from these characters. They haven’t really gone on their five-year mission, so what we experienced in the TV show hasn’t been touched on yet. That sets up an opportunity for exploration and the deeper you go, the more you are examining humanity. Those are the things that I absorbed as a kid and hope to tap into and embrace and celebrate. By the time this movie comes out, Star Trek will have been around for 50 years. [This film] is all new and fresh. The Klingons, Romulans and other species are great, »

Exclusive – Damon Lindelof talks Star Trek 3 plot and Idris Elba for villain role

19 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

To promote the release of his new movie Tomorrowland, writer Damon Lindelof (the man responsible for Lost, Star Trek Into Darkness and Prometheus) sat down with Flickering Myth’s Oli Davis, where they proceeded to talk about his new movie, but also the new Star Trek 3 film.

Lindelof produced the first two films in the relaunched franchise, writing the second instalment, but working on Tomorrowland and his HBO TV show The Leftovers meant he had to step away from the third. In the interview, Lindelof talks about what he knows of Star Trek 3’s story so far:

“It’s really about the beginning of the five year mission. It’s establishing the crew after they’ve been out there and together for a while. But I don’t know anything about the plot.”

Which is…pretty much what everyone expected, seeing how Star Trek Into Darkness ends with »

Exclusive – Damon Lindelof: Working on Star Wars would be “a dream come true”

19 May 2015 4:32 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

To promote the release of his new movie Tomorrowland, writer Damon Lindelof (the man responsible for Lost, Star Trek Into Darkness and Prometheus) sat down with Flickering Myth’s Oli Davis, where they proceeded to talk about his new movie, but also the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Star Trek 3 movies. Because they’re both pretty geeky (and one of them is best buds with Star Wars director J.J. Abrams).

While getting excited about the impending return of Luke, Leia and Han, Lindelof spoke about whether he would ever take on a Star Wars movie down the line:

“Obviously Star Wars really made me want to be a filmmaker, so the possibility that I could work on one of those films in the future would be truly a dream come true.”

22 April 2015 11:57 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to fansite TrekMovie.com, which has a solid track record when it comes to Star Trek, the upcoming third movie in Paramount Pictures’ relaunched series is going by the title of Star Trek Beyond.

According to the site, Star Trek Beyond has been registered with the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), although the report does go on to state that it could be a decoy title, given Bad Robot’s penchant for secrecy.

Meanwhile, speaking to MTV, Pegg has also confirmed that Idris Elba is set for a “kick-ass” role, stating that: “It will be [an original character]. This is the five-year mission now, we’re out there. »

Kingsman Femme Fatale Sofia Boutella Lands Star Trek 3 Role

10 April 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After menacing Taron Egerton and Colin Firth with her deadly blade legs in February’s smashing spy caper Kingsman: The Secret Service, Sofia Boutella has landed a lead role in Star Trek 3.

No word yet on whether she’ll be on the side of the USS Enterprise or taking on a villainous role, but from the sounds of it, her involvement is a done deal.

Justin Lin (Furious 6) is directing from a script by Doug Jung (TNT’s Dark Blue) and co-star Simon Pegg. The threequel is a pivotal entry for Paramount and Skydance’s blockbuster franchise, which is currently revamping to be more faithful to the classic sci-fi series it was adapted from and is also the first new Trek film not to be helmed by J.J. Abrams.

Bubble-watchers can relax, as Fox has picked up New Girl for a fifth season (while that season is already in production, it's worth noting).

We absolutely love this show and we’re so excited to bring it back for Season Five.
