Let the next Starfleet voyage begin!
Meanwhile Collider recently interviewed David Ellison and Dana Goldberg of Skydance Productions, who are executive producers on the nuTrek films. Goldberg had high praise for Lin's approach to the latest instalment:
Who knew Justin Lin was such a Star Trek fan? And he is. He met with J.J. and Lindsey Weber at Bad Robot and they fell in love with him, and brought him in to meet with us and to meet with everybody at Paramount and pitched a version of the film that we just thought ‘wow, that has huge potential.’ We’re not allowed to talk about the specifics of the film to say the least, but what we can tell you is there are some sequences that we have seen in pre-vis that are just incredible.They also confirmed Dubai will be one of the locations for Star Trek Beyond. Collider also asked about the potential for Skydance to be involved in a new Star Trek TV series, a possibility muddled by the way the rights to Star Trek are divided between CBS and Paramount. Both are enthusiastic about the idea of new TV Trek, and Ellison seemed to imply some work is being done on untangling that situation:
It’s something that we would love to be involved in. As I’m sure everybody knows, the rights situation given the CBS and Paramount divorce on the Star Trek rights is very, very complicated. The exact status of it is absolutely something being worked on. We would love to be involved, but all to be determined at this time.To keep track of all the latest information on Star Trek Beyond, check out my Star Trek Beyond guide page.
