Someone sound the geek alarm! When we were at Comic-Con the poster for Star Trek XI (this poster) got released, and boy was the talk about that movie and that poster coming out of every door. Now a director has finally been set, and none other than Mr. Mission Impossible 3 (and Lost / Alias) himself - J.J. Abrams. The news comes from a Variety story where Viacom CEO Philippe Dauman stated that Abrams would not only produce but also direct the next Star Trek. He also confirms that they are setting it for a 2008 or 2009 release - so chalk up another great one already being planned for that year. With as much as I enjoyed MI:3, I have a bit of faith in him in taking on this epic project. Well, epic being the 11th, but also just being as hyped as it is (Matt Damon as Captain Kirk?!).
Updated as of February 24, 2007: J.J. Abrams Confirmed!
