William Shatner to Direct New Doc About William Shatner

16 June 2010 9:15 AM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

William Shatner isn't going to do his reputation as an egotistical blow-hard any favors when he goes behind the lens for The Captains, a feature-length documentary on a subject near and dear to the Canadian actor -- himself. Can the actor remain objective when he's got himself as the subject? Does he really need to?

The Captains pinpoints a specific time in Shatner's life, chronicling his early days as an actor until his star-making role as Captain Kirk, replacing Jeffrey Hunter's Captain Pike right when Gene Roddenberry was trying to get Star Trek off the ground. Shatner is also executive producer on the project, which will air in 2011 on Canada's Movie Central Channel according to Trek Movie.

The older Shatner gets, the more willing he is to be self-deprecating, but he's still pretty bull-headed when it comes to Trek. Check out his amusing interactions with Leonard Nimoy in "The Captain's Summit »
