Star Trek series: teaser poster and promo

According to this ONTD post, CBS released a teaser poster and promo for the Fuller Star Trek TV series.

This is the poster,

Which I could basically mock up in Power Point in 2.7 minutes.

And you can see the promo at the source, here. Which tells me they haven't started shooting anything yet. Still, we have a date and not long to go now (I'm waiting for new Sherlock, another year is a short time for me, ok?).

UPDATE: chienne_folle gave the heads up that the poster is basically just a sales pitch, according to Trek Core.

As we enter Star Trek’s fiftieth year, it’s a good time to look back on the early days of the show. Gerald Gurian has recently released a book that does just that: To Boldly Go: Rare Photos from the TOS Soundstage ($40), which gives us a good look at the behind the scenes making of the original show.

Gurian’s book has hundreds of pictures of all aspects of the creation of the original Star Trek, giving us a great look at the sets, models, actors and work that went into bringing the science fiction show to life.

Lots of pictures at the source.

Bryan Fuller does Star Trek!

He's been tapped to work on the new Star Trek TV series that CBS is going to use as cannon fodder to launch a new streaming service. He most recently was the creator and show runner on the Hannibal TV series. From what I've seen he likes horror, gayness and casting Lee Pace in things. This could get interesting!

Friday Weekly Update

Hello GQMF's!

This week the "For the love of Spock" documentary got its full funding on Kickstarter. You can read more about it in our previous post. I pledged. Yay.

Also Justin Lin (the director) tweeted

Star Trek Beyond?

How was your week?
Adam Nimoy has begun a Kickstarter campaign to fund the production of the documentary he and Leonard began developing before Leonard's passing. Rather than talking about it myself I'll just let some excerpts from the Kickstarter campaign speak for themselves:

YOU can help make Adam & Leonard Nimoy's plan to create a Spock Doc come true! Watch the video, share the vision & pledge what you can!

How It Started

Last year, just before Thanksgiving, I approached my dad, Leonard Nimoy, about the possibility of working together on a film about Mr. Spock. I had skimmed through some of the books on the making of Star Trek and felt there was so much more to explore about the birth and evolution of Spock. And the timing seemed right, as the 50th anniversary of Star Trek: The Original Series was not that far away. Dad agreed that now was the right time, and that he was 100% committed to collaborating with me on this project. He also reminded me that we were (then) just days away from the 50th anniversary of the start of production on “The Cage,” the original pilot for Star Trek in which Dad first appeared as Mr. Spock.

Please participate in my Kickstarter campaign and help me complete a project that was important to my dad and has become extremely important to me.

Thanks again for your time and consideration.

LLAP,




Who Is Involved With This Project?

Earlier this year, my father and I reached out to 455 Films to help us produce this project. 455 Films is made up of producers David Zappone, Kevin Layne and Joseph Kornbrodt. Dad chose this company because he was familiar with the Star Trek related films they have produced with William Shatner and was impressed with their work. David, Kevin and Joseph are also very well versed in the Star Trek tradition, and have worked previously with all of the important players in the world of Star Trek.

With their background in production and my experience in directing over 45 hours of network television, I'm very confident that we're going to deliver an entertaining and enlightening film about the lives of Leonard Nimoy and Mr. Spock.

In addition, I'm excited to announce that Zachary Quinto has generously agreed to narrate the film about the famous Vulcan, a character he now knows quite well himself.

For more information on the project and Adam's video introduction, please visit the Kickstarter page.

Leonard Nimoy, Spock of ‘Star Trek,’ Dies at 83





By VIRGINIA HEFFERNAN



Leonard Nimoy, the sonorous, gaunt-faced actor who won a worshipful global following as Mr. Spock, the resolutely logical human-alien first officer of the Starship Enterprise in the television and movie juggernaut “Star Trek,” died on Friday morning at his home in the Bel Air section of Los Angeles. He was 83.

His wife, Susan Bay Nimoy, confirmed his death, saying the cause was end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Mr. Nimoy announced that he had the disease last year, attributing it to years of smoking, a habit he had given up three decades earlier. He had been hospitalized earlier in the week.

But that wasn’t such a bad thing, he discovered. “Given the choice,” he wrote, “if I had to be someone else, I would be Spock.”

Simon Pegg to co-write Star Trek III

Simon Pegg has confirmed that he will co-writer of the third entry in the rebooted Star Trek franchise, set for release in 2016.

Pegg, who plays miracle-working, Enterprise-anthropomorphising chief engineer Montgomery “Scotty” Scott in the films, will pen the script alongside Doug Jung, whose past work includes crime caper Confidence.

Pegg’s only solo cinematic writing credit to date is Run, Fatboy, Run, which received lukewarm reviews, although he co-scripted the Cornetto trilogy - Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World’s End - with Edgar Wright.

Following the departure of JJ Abrams, who helmed 2009’s Star Trek and its sequel, Into Darkness, Roberto Orci (who co-wrote the first two films) was set to write and direct the third. Orci, who has no previous directorial experience, then stepped down in December last year, reportedly over studio concerns with his script, although he will stay on as producer.

Wright was then tipped to replace him before Fast and Furious’s Justin Lin was eventually offered the director’s chair.
