Is Bill in Trek? Shat No!

Is Bill in Trek? Shat No!

Bill Shatner’s a huff-and-a-puff away from taking out an ad in Variety indicating his displeasure in being left out of the new “Star Trek” movie.

But as Damon Lindelof, the producer of the upcoming “Trek” prequel, tells AMC how the fuck were they going to bring Kirk back when he died a few films back? Valid point.

“Mr. Shatner created Kirk, so I understand and sympathize with his feelings about what his role — or lack of a role — in our movie was. That being said, Kirk died; he fell down a cliff face. That made it incredibly challenging for us to tell the story we wanted to tell and figure out a way for William Shatner, who is now several years older than Kirk was when he died, to be in the movie”, says Lindelof, also a produce on TVs “Lost”. “It’s an incredibly ambitious movie on a technical scale. I can say with confidence that we achieved what we set out to achieve, and that’s all you can ask for.”

Lindelof also touched upon the unhurried movement on the film adaptation of Stephen King’s “The Dark Tower” series, which he’s also involved in.

‘’The Dark Tower is to me every bit as daunting an adaptation as the Lord of the Rings trilogy must have been for Peter Jackson, except we’ve got seven books we’re looking at”, he explains. “And the idea of doing that at the same time Carlton and I are bringing Lost to a close is simply not viable. There are always Dark Tower conversations, but the figuring out of what this will look like as a movie has not begun. If The Dark Tower were in the right hands, I would love to see seven movies executed just right. But you have to get people to see the first one to get them to come and see the second one.”
