Leonard Nimoy and Bruce Greenwood don’t think they’ll be in the next Star Trek film

Posted by LiveFor on November 19, 2009


The “Star Trek” DVD/Blu-ray release party was at the Griffith Observatory in LA. The sequel is still being written by Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman so nothing is known regarding plot and what characters will be in it. J J Abrams still isn’t sure if he will direct it.

Fans seem to want Khan to be in it, but I’m not sure if I do. I think they should go with an all new story with new villains. However, if Khan is in it then Nestor Carbonell (the awesome Bat Manuel in The Tick, the mayor in The Dark Knight and Richard Alpert in Lost) appears to be the favourite to play him.

Most of the cast attended the Blu-Ray launch party and MovieWeb managed to speak to Nimoy (Spock) and Bruce Greenwood (Captain Pike).

First up was Leonard Nimoy:

“I am very happy with the direction J.J. took this particular film. He has a great cast, and he’s in great shape. I was fortunate enough to work with an exceptional group of actors, and the fans really seemed to enjoy the film.” Nimoy went on to say, “I don’t think there is room for me to return in a sequel. I don’t think they need me. I am happy to see Zachary continue on with the role. I don’t believe a second film would benefit from me being a part of it. If J.J. asked me to come back, I would consider it. But I don’t think it is necessary, nor do I think that is part of J.J.’s plan.”

“I know they’re writing the film right now, but I’m not sure if we’ll see Pike or not,” Greenwood said. “He was mainly there to bring Kirk aboard the Enterprise and it’s hard to say if he’ll be popping up in the sequel.”

Greenwood also spoke about his history with the series and what he learned from his predecessors who played Captain Pike in the past.

“I did go back and look at Jeffrey Hunter’s performance in the original series,” Greenwood said about his preperation for the role. “This is obviously a very different kind of Star Trek, but it was nice to see the history of the character unfold.”


Would you want to see Captain Pike or Spock return in the sequel? How about Khan?

What story or characters do you want to see?

You’re a huge Star Trek fan and you want that to show at your funeral

Posted by LiveFor on June 10, 2009

This is the official Star Trek casket from Eternal Image.

I like a bit of Star Trek, but this is going a bit too far in my mind. I don’t think my family would be too happy if I went for this coffin. Still it does look cool.

Khan – Mantra, war cry? You decide

Posted by LiveFor on June 2, 2009

Last week Machine Project in Echo Park showed Daniel Martinco‘s “15-minute meticulously re-spliced creation in a never-ending loop that transforms a moment” from Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan “into one of anguish (or snickering for the the audience) into a meditation, maybe even a mantra. This below clip “doesn’t begin to do justice to the size, sound and hypnotic power of the real thing.” — from an LA Weekly piece that appeared last Thursday.
