Abrams Trek2 & MI4

09.15.2009

Creator of LOST and director of the awesome STAR TREK, JJ Abrams has some news on TREK 2 and MISSION IMPOSSIBLE 4.

SciFi Wire got the full Q&A on Abrams upcoming projects movie and television wise. The first question on the movies side of things started with TREK 2 and what was going on with the sequel, "We're hopefully going to have everyone, obviously, from the first cast. I keep trying to spread this rumor that I'm going to recast Kirk as Greg Grunberg, but no one ever prints it." Most likely because Chris Pine is a badass. Continuing on about the film, Abrams had a bit of information on the script, "We're just starting on that. Yes, we know the direction, but it's very early. We're working on a script right now still. I can tell you it's cool. We have some really cool ideas, but it's too early." Abrams also added that they hadn't started on the script but Orci and Kurtzman were still doing it, as well as Damon Lindelof.

So what's going on with the new MISSION IMPOSSIBLE movie? Abrams had this to say on it, "Yeah, we have a really cool story. It's being written right now by Andre Nemec and Josh Applebaum. We're hoping to get it [draft] soon, like by the end of the year." I'm a fan of MISSION and I think that Abrams could make it excellent. How does he feel about directing the fourth film in the series? "I'm open to anything." Sounds good to me.

Abrams also talked about his upcoming film MORNING GLORY starring Harrison Ford and Rachel McAdams saying that it is being edited right now and will come out next year. As for a release date, he didn't have any information on that one. I'm of the opinion that if Abrams is in on a project, it's going to be awesome.

Extra Tidbit: So for my LOST fans, out of curiosity, how do you think that the show will come full circle in the last season?

The Man

JJ Abrams has a brilliant mind. He is definitely one of my favs. It's good he has the wheels in motion for his next two projects. As for LOST - I think it's better not to guess and predict what's going to happen or may happen - and just live in the moment while you watch - it's more exciting that way. Besides if you try and figure it out - your head just may explode.

JJs the shit

MI4 was the best one in my eyes, and anything He touches turns to gold: Lost, Fringe, Star Trek to name a few

I'm sure if JJ directs, the movie will be great. However, like alot of other people, I thought it was cool that Cruise was getting a new big shot director for each one. I like that idea better. And was hoping for Fincher, or somebody in the same caliber.

In my opinion M:I-3 is the best of the franchise, and it's even better than TREK, and J.J. is good enough to do them right.

As much as I like Abrams, i don't think that he should direct MI4. The concept so far, was to get one awesome Director for each Movie. Brian de Palma, John Who, J.J. Abrams. They should get a new big name. Fincher, Tykwer ...

I agree. It really annoys me when they start out a series with the rotating director concept, only to drop it half way through (i.e. Harry Potter*). Although, if they had to pick a director to come back for seconds I'm glad they went with Abrams.


*I know, I know, Colombus directed the first two, but still, even he realized he wasn't going to do all of them. For a while they were doing a great job of getting fresh talent for each film, but now Yates will have directed half the series by

agreed with drewmc.. I don't even wanna speculate. Every time you think you know LOST it throws you for another insane loop.

I just can't wait to see it all unfold.

Honestly, I've heard so many different theories that I'm kind of tired of speculating. I'm sure the writer's will come up with some mind blowing twist while continuing to tell a fantastic story and end the character arcs in some perfect, beautiful way. I'm ready to just sit back and enjoy the final season. January is way too far away!

Yes he is. In fact I'm pretty sure he and Abrams signed on around the same time.

I am happy with whichever one he does first, but if I had to choose I would say do M.I. first so the kinks in the Star trek story can be wrinkled out so it can be perfect.
