In different occasion, they talked about what they know of the upcoming film.
First is Quinto who revealed further information on his famous character, Spock. In a recent interview with CreationTV, the "Heroes" villain can be heard saying, "This story happens sort of irrespective of where the Spock we've come to know ends up." Highlighting the "irrespective" word he stressed on, some publication speculated that perhaps his Spock won't be the same as Leonard Nimoy's. The interview can be enjoyed below.
On Pegg's story, it is reported that the depicter of the younger version of Montgomery "Scotty" Scott has eliminated the question that the movie may be a reboot. Talking to Starlog Magazine, he explained, "I often see Star Trek being referred to as a remake, and it really isn't. It's another Star Trek film; it's another movie in the series. It's the continuing mission."
With a long list of cast that include also Chris Pine, Eric Bana, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin, Winona Ryder, the eleventh feature film version of the sci-fi series is directed by J.J. Abrams. Expected to hit theaters on May 8, 2009, it chronicles the early days of James T. Kirk and his fellow USS Enterprise crew members during their time at Starfleet Academy.
