Star Trek XI: Featuring Matt Damon as Kirk?
I really hope that the IMDB is joking, but currently on their site they list Star Trek XI as being created to be released in 2008.
According to a report filed on a reputable website, Matt Damon is slated to play the role of Cadet James T. Kirk. The newest installment of the Star Trek franchise will be an Original Series Prequel, focusing on Kirk, Spock, and McCoy during their Starfleet Academy days.
I really don’t like anything about this movie already. Matt Damon as Kirk, a prequel plot, and J.J. Abrams as the director. They are really going the opposite way that I would have brought the story, as I think there are more fans that have money and time that are interested in Deep Space 9 and Voyager over the Original Series.
This could be and probably will be the nail in the coffin for Star Trek.
