Behind the Scenes of Star Trek with Kurtzman and Orci
In honor of the world premiere of J.J. Abrams' Star Trek tonight in Australia, I thought it'd be great feature this new behind-the-scenes video interview that Hollywood Reporter posted. Writers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (whom I interviewed previously about Trek) talked with THR about the challenges of rebooting a franchise like this, interacting with the fans, and whether or not there is a Tribble in the movie (an important question). There's no new footage, but it's still a great interview, especially if you're looking forward to the new Star Trek or are a fan of Kurtzman and Orci. Read on for the video!
A chronicle of the early days of James T. Kirk and his fellow USS Enterprise crew members.
Star Trek is directed by J.J. Abrams (of "Lost" and Mission: Impossible III) and is written by Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (of The Island, Mission: Impossible III, Transformers, and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen). This is the 11th movie in the Star Trek universe, following most recently Star Trek: Nemesis in 2002. Star Trek is set to land in theaters everywhere on May 8th, 2009 this summer!
