Jumping the gun on "Trek"

Paul Smith nabbed this tidbit about the supposed upcoming Star Trek movie, which adds more to this post:

"Mission: Impossible III" director J.J. Abrams is hitting back at unauthorized reports he is directing the next Star Trek movie. The "Alias" creator is furious the news was released prematurely and is also upset that key details regarding the storyline were incorrectly reported. He explains to Empire online, "The whole thing was reported entirely without our cooperation. People learned that I was producing a Star Trek film, that I had an option to direct it, they hear rumors of what the thing was going to be and ran with a story that is not entirely accurate." Last week, Hollywood trade paper Variety, reported Abrams was on board and that the film would center on the early days of Captain James T. Kirk and Spock and that Philip Seymour Hoffman was in talks to play the ship's doctor. Abrams won't reveal the true storyline, but hints that it won't feature characters Captain James T. Kirk or Mr. Spock at all, but doesn't rule out bringing some of the original characters back for the new film, adding, "Those characters are so spectacular. I just think that...you know, they could live again."

Nobody stays dead in entertainment. Just ask readers of Marvel Comics!

Heck, just ask Spock himself. He's already been brought back from the dead once.
