Star Trek prequel planned for 2008, to be helmed by J.J. Abrams

Posted on Friday, April 21st, 2006. Last Updated on Friday, April 21st, 2006 9:21 AM by Scott Jentsch

Daily Variety is reporting that a new Star Trek movie is in the works, and this one will be helmed by J.J. Abrams, whose latest movie Mission: Impossible III is just about to be released. Abrams is also known for producing the TV shows "Alias" and "Lost" and is said to be helping with writing and producing duties as well. A 2008 release is planned.
Daily Variety said the action would center on the early days of "Star Trek" characters James T. Kirk and Mr. Spock, including their first meeting at Starfleet Academy and first outer-space mission.
The last movie in the series, Star Trek: Nemesis, opened December 13th, 2002 and made just over $43 million in theaters, with an estimated budget of $70 million. (The link goes to a story about the story by Reuters, since Variety's web site charges for access to its articles)
