Leonard Nimoy's son is boldly going where no filmmaker has gone before: A feature-length documentary based on his late father and his beloved Star Trek character Mr. Spock. Adam Nimoy has launched a Kickstarter for his film For the Love of Spock, "a project that was important to my dad and has become extremely important to me," he writes.
"Last year, my father and I began working on a documentary about the life of Mr. Spock," Adam Nimoy says in a video on the film's Kickstarter. "We were both »
Project "Captain Worf" apparently still lives! It was in mid-2012 when we announced that "Star Trek: The Next Generation" & "Deep Space Nine" star, Michael Dorn, revealed that he was pitching a movie/TV series centered around the character we all mostly know and love him for, Lt Commander Worf. "I am serious. I think there is a place for it. Straight to DVD or straight to cable. Who wouldn’t want to have this kind of thing going on? It is going to help their movie [J.J. Abrams' then upcoming 'Star Trek' movie]. The fans aren’t going 'we are going to see this movie, but we aren’t going to go see the big movie in the theater," Dorn »

Three months after the death of Leonard Nimoy, his son Adam Nimoy is launching a Kickstarter campaign to raise $600,000 for a documentary about his father titled “For the Love of Spock,” Variety has learned exclusively.
The project is aimed at celebrating the 50th anniversary of “Star Trek,” which aired for the first time on Sept. 8, 1966. Zachary Quinto, who portrayed the Spock character in last two “Star Trek” films, will narrate the film. David Zappone, the owner and president of Paramount-based 455 Films, will produce.
“The funding of this film through Kickstarter will enable us to continue with production — which will mostly take the form of filming interviews of dad’s friends, colleagues and family members,” Adam Nimoy said. “It will also enable us to license the hundreds of film clips and still photographs of Mr. Spock as he has appeared on television and in feature films over the last 50 years.”

Even before his father’s death in February, Adam Nimoy – son of Leonard – had been planning a documentary called For The Love Of Spock. Now he’s looking to raise $600,000 to cover the costs. Take a look at the pitch video.Talking to Variety, Nimoy said that the additional funds will be used to help finish the film, which has Zachary Quinto – no stranger to the ears, eyebrows and logical disposition himself – narrating. “The funding of this film through Kickstarter will enable us to continue with production — which will mostly take the form of filming interviews of dad’s friends, colleagues and family members,” Nimoy says. “It will also enable us to license the hundreds of film clips and still photographs of Mr. Spock as he has appeared on television and in feature films over the last 50 years.”The aim is to celebrate Leonard Nimoy’s work and life around and beyond Star Trek, »
And now another summertime staple appears at the multiplex: the feature film version of a television series. It’s not a recast movie adaptation of a beloved series from TV’s “golden” or “silver age” like Get Smart or The Fugitive nor one with an intense cult following that like Star Trek, which has inspired a long-running (over 35 years now) franchise (but who knows?). This series isn’t currently in production as with “The Simpsons” or “The X-Files” (which was still running on Fox TV when the first film premiered). This could be closer to Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, which hit theatres mere months after ABC TV’s show left the airwaves. But it’s closest, perhaps, to Sex And The City which made its movie debut just a few years after wrapping a successful run on “premium” cable channel HBO (as in “It’s not TV…it »

Neil deGrasse Tyson, astrophysicist and host of Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, is a well-known Star Trek fan. You might even go so far as to call him a Trekkie. That allegiance has also made him a pretty big Star Wars hater. "I never got into Star Wars. Maybe because they made no attempt to portray real physics. At all," he once told Business Insider. So imagine deGrasse Tyson's probable shock when one lowly Star Wars: Rogue One writer, Chris Weitz, waved the white flag and tweeted him for help with an astronomy question. More than just help, he requested an actual miracle — or, as he calls it, a "twitter hail mary."DeGrasse Tyson doesn't appear to have publicly responded to Weitz's tweet just yet, so we'll just give the frustrated screenwriter three words of advice: "zero-g hair." »

In exactly two months, Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation officially lights the fuse! For the fifth mission, Christopher McQuarrie (Jack Reacher) took on directing duties with megastar Tom Cruise (Edge Of Tomorrow) reprising his role as Imf Agent Ethan Hunt and leading an ensemble cast that features Jeremy Renner (Avengers: Age Of Ultron), Simon Pegg (Star Trek), Ving Rhames (Mission: Impossible 3), Rebecca Ferguson (Hercules), and Alec Baldwin (The Departed). Not much has been revealed about the film's plot yet, but if we've learned anything about Cruise over the years, it's that he rarely disappoints, so on July 31st, be ready to gear up for the wildest ride of the summer! And if I had to make an educated guess, I'd say we should expect to see a new action-packed trailer within the month as well as a variety of other promotional material. Additionally, thanks to the Tom Cruise Blog, »

Wonder Woman may have found her man. Chris Pine is in talks to co-star in Warner Bros.’ upcoming big screen take on the DC Comics superheroine, according to Variety. And now nerds everywhere have been inspired to write Captain Kirk/Diana Prince fan fiction. The “Star Trek” actor would play love interest Steve Trevor, who has a long history with Wonder Woman in the comic books. The character’s first appearance was 1941’s “All-Star Comics” No. 8 when his U.S. Army plane crash-lands on Paradise Island, home to Diana and her fellow Amazons. Gal Gadot of the “Fast and Furious” franchise is playing the title hero. Set to direct the film is Patty Jenkins (“Monster”).

Who loves Joe Dante? Trick question: Everyone does. The legendary director cut his teeth editing trailers for Roger Corman, before doing an excellent job at transitioning into a director himself, helming such classics as Piranha, Gremlins, The Howling, The Burbs and Matinee just to name a few. While Dante’s last offering, The Hole didn’t exactly connect with a lot of its audience (F that, I loved it), it looks like Joe’s back and better than ever with Burying The Ex, a film filled with a stunning young cast such as Like Crazy/Star Trek‘s Anton Yelchin, Texas Chainsaw 3D/True Detective‘s Alexandria D’Addario (Did I mention True Detectiiive?) and Ashley Greene (Twilight). Throw in some zombie gore, a few laughs to round it out, and from what the trailer gives, it looks like a fun time. Rlje/Image Entertainment is unleashing the film to VOD/iTunes beginning June 19th. »

The actor and writer revealed a few weeks ago he had been asked to make the film "less Star Trek-y", and that the studio was looking for a more Avengers-style story.
Pegg has now said that work started afresh on a new script six months ago, but he and co-writer and Doug Jung are facing a tight deadline to completely finish it in time.
He told the Radio Times: "We started again six months before we were due to start shooting, which is insane!
"In fact we start shooting in Vancouver in four weeks – and we're only handing in our first draft today."
With a release date already scheduled for next summer, we figured Star Trek 3, or Star Trek Beyond, would begin filming before too long. It.s now on the horizon, but what about the script? Simon Pegg and Doug Jung took that on fairly recently, and though they.ve now finally turned in a draft, a big part of their process included shaving the screenplay down significantly. Talking to Radio Times, Pegg revealed that he and Jung just turned in their first draft of the script to execs, and that it was kind of a monster that they had to tame. The general rule of screenplay writing is that one page is roughly equivalent to one minute of screen time. Pegg and Jung had to wrestle theirs down from 180 minutes to 135. Talking about the time crunch, Pegg said: We started again six months before we were due to start shooting, »
Paramount may want to kindly advise Simon Pegg to stop talking so much about "Star Trek 3" already. The actor and screenwriter for the next installment of the sci-fi franchise recently revealed that before he came on, the studio had rejected a draft of the screenplay of the movie for being too "Star Trek"-y, and that they were aiming for something with more four-quadrant appeal (think "The Avengers"). Now Pegg reveals that, mere weeks from shooting, the script he's co-writing with Doug Jung is only now crossing the desk of executives. “We started again six months before we were due to start shooting, which is insane! In fact...we start shooting in Vancouver in four weeks – and we’re only handing in our first draft today,” Pegg told Radio Times. They don't say when the interview took place, but it was presumably around the same time he made his »

George Miller is riding a wave of adulation right now thanks to the critical and commercial success of Mad Max: Fury Road, but eight years ago the filmmaker came this close to making a superhero movie that would've resulted in an entirely different DC Cinematic Universe.
Back in summer 2007 a script titled Justice League Mortal, by Michele and Kieran Mulroney, impressed Warner Bros bosses and the studio quickly enlisted Miller to make it a reality for a summer 2009 release. However, the movie - which was due to shoot in Australia - was plagued by behind-the-scenes issues that eventually led to the plug being pulled.
