There's a new Star Trek movie comin' atcha. This one is from J.J. Abrams and it completely recasts The Original Show characters with young hot actors and is a chronicle of the early days of James T. Kirk and his fellow USS Enterprise crew members during their time at Starfleet Academy.
Ya gotchyer Zoe Saldana as Uhura.
Ya gotchyer Anton Yelchin as Pavel Andreievich Chekov.
Ya gotchyer John Cho as Hikaru Sulu.
Ya gotchyer Simon Pegg as Montgomery Scott.
Ya gotchyer Karl Urban as Leonard McCoy.
Ya gotchyer Zachary Quinto as Spock (I can totally see those eyebrows doing the "Fascinating" thing).
And, (overly dramatic and totally useless [much like william shatner] drum roll) ya gotchyer Chris Pine as James Tiberius Kirk.
Some will see this as BLASPHEMY of the Highest Order.
I actually think it may work really well.
It will either reboot the franchise from the very beginning, paving the way for another potential four decades of sequals and spinoffs...or...it will drive a wooden stake and fire a silver bullet into the heart of the franchise and finally kill it off forever.
Either way, it will be interseting to watch.
