Daily Variety is reporting that J.J. Abrams, the man who brought us 'Lost' and Mission Impossible III is taking on the 'Trek' movie franchise. Abrams will produce, direct and possibly have a hand in writing the film as well.
According to CNN, Variety reports the new film, slated for a 2008 release, will focus on the Academy days of Kirk and Spock, including their first mission.
When 'Enterprise' was cancelled last year, many predicted the franchise would be back. But nobody expected it this soon.
If Abrams writes a good story and makes a good film, no problem. If he doesn't, this will be another nail in the coffin and that much longer until anyone tries again...
