Director J.J. Abrams has confirmed that the writing team for "Star Trek XI" has completed work on the script.
Seems everything is running in order for "Star Trek XI." Director J.J. Abrams has delightfully confirmed that the film's script has finally been completed while revealing that it will focus on the young Capt. James T. Kirk and Spock.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Abrams even confidently remarked that the story will not only satisfy the series fans, but also the non-Trekkers as well.
"For people who've never seen it or know it vaguely, I think they will enjoy it equally, because the movie does not require you to know anything about Star Trek," he commented. "I would actually prefer [that] people don't know the series, because I feel like they will come to it with an open mind."
In the meantime, William Shatner, who played Kirk in the original "Star Trek" series, confessed to SCI FI Wire that he will positively take part in the project if Abrams can find a place to use him.
"I met with J.J., and they told me they would like me to be part of their film, but they have to write the role," so he said.
