Star Trek franchise is being given new life by
the Genesis experiment Lost cocreator
J.J. Abrams, the man behind this summer's
Mission: Impossible III,
Variety reports. The as-yet-untitled feature, slated for a fall 2008 release, will focus on the early adventures of James T. Kirk and Mr. Spock, including their first meeting at Starfleet Academy; Abrams will direct as well as help write and produce the pic. Is anyone else getting goose bumps, or am I just a big ol'
Star Trek geek? Seriously,
no one's Kirk Halloween costume could ever compare to mine.
