Speaking to MTV about his upcoming Star Trek 2, director J.J. Abrams revealed that his next film’s lens flares will fly off the screen and probably making you go blind through the magic of 3D. Though he isn’t planning to shoot in 3D, he’ll be using the process that’s sometimes terrible, sometimes acceptable, and always unnecessary: post-production 3D conversion, which Abrams promises will be “good” and “high-end” if still one dimension behind Star Trek: The Experience’s Borg Invasion 4-D. With his Mission: Impossible successor Brad Bird shooting parts of Ghost Protocol in IMAX, Abrams is also reportedly looking at shooting some scenes from the next Star Trek in the novelty-sized format. Said Abrams:
“We were talking about [shooting in IMAX] and I would love to do it. IMAX is my favorite format.”
For extra credit: What’s your favorite format?
So often with a rejected lover, the dismissal of their unwanted advances sends them straight into the arms of a similar substitute, and with Benicio del Toro rebuffing J.J. Abrams’ offers to join him on a romantic journey through the stars, Abrams already has his eye on another man who knows how to wear a beret.
According to Variety, the director’s top pick for Star Trek 2‘s villain role is now Édgar Ramírez, the Venezuelan actor who last year won praise for playing the lead in Carlos and earlier this year was rumored for the then-unknown, top-secret villain role in The Man of Steel. Similarly, the exact evil part Ramírez is now rumored for is also still unknown, though it’s heavily rumored to be a reprisal of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan‘s wrathful titular villain.
Spanish actor Jordi Mollà is also supposedly being eyed as a back-up, which also strongly hints at Khan: the original portrayer of the villain, Ricardo Montalbán, was himself Mexican, and to J.J. Abrams, any dude who speaks Spanish is Mexican enough for him. He said that, verbatim, when I asked him what Lost was about.
With shooting on Star Trek 2 aiming for a January start, director J.J. Abrams is back to searching for someone to play his film’s villain after negotiations with Benicio del Toro failed to come any agreement last week. For the last month, there have been rumors that del Toro was up in talks the part of the film’s antagonist–who still may or may not be a new iteration of the first Star Trek II‘s Khan–but said talks reportedly broke down Wednesday when neither party was able to come to an agreement on how much it’s worth to put on an outfit that revealed so much chest.
This news comes just a day after news Peter Weller has joined Star Trek 2‘s cast, but please, do not blame RoboCop. He’s a fucking hero.
RoboCop and Buckaroo Banzai star Peter Weller is expected to expand his sci-fi legend and join the cast of J.J. Abrams’ upcoming Star Trek sequel. As with most J.J. Abrams news items, the director made everyone promise not to say any specifics or they aren’t his friend anymore, and as such, details of Weller’s part are unknown. What is known is that Weller previously had a guest role on TV’s Star Trek: Enterprise, where he was directed by the great LeVar Burton. So, regardless of the part, this will inevitably be a downgrade for Weller’s experience in the Star Trek universe. Once you’ve experienced Geordi and Scott Bakula on an Enterprise bridge together, the rest of your life exists in that shadow.
Ever since J.J. Abrams’ rebooted Star Trek left us with the reaction, “Yeah, that was a pretty OK Star Trek,” there’s been some lingering doubt over whether Abrams would return to the director’s chair. We all kind of assumed he would, but his refusal to give a definitive commitment, even over two years later, raised an interesting counterpoint: hm, maybe he won’t. Anyway, Vulture is now reporting a firm attachment by the director, adding that “pre-production is underway, that the script will be done by month’s end and that Abrams will start shooting this winter.” So, Trekkers, stop worrying about that; start worrying about if this alternate timeline will require a different set of humpback whales to save the future if the original timeline’s Kirk and Spock have already taken George and Gracie from the past. Where will we find more whales???
