We reported in October that both Roberto Orci and his writing partner Alex Kurtzman were on board to write the script, although their Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness co-writer Damon Lindelof is not involved. Now it seems that Alex Kurtzman has backed out as well.
The project does not have a title as of yet, or a scheduled production start date, although Paramount is hoping to have the sequel in theaters by 2016, a year which marks the 50th anniversary of the original Star Trek TV series, created by Gene Roddenberry. Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto and Zoe Saldana are expected to reprise their roles for the sequel.
Although J.J. Abrams is not directing this follow-up, he is still on board as a producer. We »

"What a dickhead. I mean, the amount of times we had to lie for him. The amount of secrets, the amount of times I had to not talk about it being my character. God damn him."
When asked if he thought it was the right choice to keep Khan's identity under wraps, the actor had this to say.
"No, I love him. I don't know if it's a bad or a good thing. It was his call. I was fine with it. The intention was to have the reveal for the audience that was going to be thrilling, »
From the moment that Benicio del Toro (Sin City) and Edgar Ramirez (Elite Squad) were linked to the role of the villain in Star Trek Into Darkness, the fact that Chris Pine's Kirk would find himself up against his nemesis Khan Noonien Singh in the sequel to the 2009 reboot was perhaps the worst kept secret in Hollywood history. Sure, the casting of Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) as 'John Harrison', the continuous denials from the cast and crew, and Karl Urban namedropping Gary Mitchell might have had us questioning ourselves, but let's face it, was there a Star Trek fan out there who didn't think "I knew it!" when Cumberbatch dropped his "My name is Khan!" line?
Well, in an interview with MTV, director J.J. Abrams has admitted that he regrets the decision to keep Khan's identity a secret in the run up to the film's release: "The truth is, I »

Ouch! That was certainly our first reaction when we saw Chris Pine looking a little worse for wear in Los Angeles on Tuesday, Dec. 3. Thankfully, though, the sight of the 33-year-old star looking all beat up was just the result of a little Hollywood makeup magic. (Phew.) It turns out Pine was simply shooting a scene for Horrible Bosses 2, the upcoming sequel to the very successful 2011 comedy. Pine will be sharing the screen with returning cast members Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, Charlie Day, Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Aniston and Kevin Spacey. Christoph Waltz has also signed on to be in the flick. Horrible Bosses 2 is slated to be released on Nov. 26, 2014. Fortunately, we »

“The Simpsons: Season Sixteen”
While the quality of the show itself has gone down, some would say notably, Fox continues to truly impress with the Blu-ray and DVD releases for the legendary hit. Not only do they include notable bonus material and great transfers but they have commentaries on every single episode. These are still the standard-bearers for television on Blu-ray and DVD. Go ahead, make fun of the quality of »

One of the biggest complains about J.J. Abrams, and one of fans biggest fears heading into Star Wars: Episode VII, is the director's propensity for secrecy. His 'mystery box' way of producing a film reached ridiculous heights with Star Trek Into Darkness, as he adamantly refused to reveal whom Benedict Cumberbatch was actually playing, referring to him only as the terrorist John Harrison.
This has lead to plenty of backlash in the months since the sequel debuted this summer. Many, including the director himself, think the movie might have been better received if the advertising had been trueful about the inclusion of iconic villain Khan in this sequel that has gone onto been called the worst Star Trek movie of all time (which including all entries in the franchise including the reboots, the originals and Star Trek: The Next Generation).
Speaking with MTV, the director goes onto place almost »

This is where we start a war. We'll lose friends, and cause controversy. Because somewhere on this list below is something you're dying to see. In fact, you might be fanatical about some of these inclusions (Christopher Nolan fans, we're staring straight at you). But it's inevitable. And unavoidable. Hollywood is releasing hundreds of movies in 2014. Some of them will be good. Some of them will be bad. And some will be box office disasters. In compiling this list, we're not declaring that all, or even any, of these movies will be unwatchable. Some will be quite good. Maybe even a masterpiece or a classic in the making. There are a few that we're desperate to see ourselves. We really want them to succeed. But every movie here is a risk taker. And some of this shit? Hollywood should clearly know better. These are the 14 Biggest Potential Bombs of 2014.
"My contribution dealt mostly with Spock's ship. I played a little visual pun in designing the cockpit - the triangle intersecting the circle is a reference to the Vulcan Idic symbol from the original television show. And since the character's identity is still a mystery at this point in the film, I wanted this to be a tip off to all the Trekkies in the audience." - Nathan Schroeder The greatest adventure of all time begins with Star Trek, the incredible story of a young crew’s maiden voyage onboard the most advanced starship ever created: the U.S.S. Enterprise. On a journey filled with action, comedy and cosmic peril, the new recruits must find a way to stop an evil being whose mission of vengeance threatens all of mankind. The fate of the galaxy rests in the hands of bitter rivals. One, James Kirk (Chris Pine), is a delinquent, »
