Though mostly known for projects that involve aliens (Cowboys & Aliens), robots (the Transformers movies), and outer space (Star Trek), writer-director Alex Kurtzman's directorial debut is actually about real people in real situations.
People Like Us, starring Star Trek's Chris Pine, is inspired by true events in Kurtzman's life. Though Kurtzman is currently promoting People Like Us, it's nearly impossible for Kurtzman to not talk about the Star Trek sequel, which he is co-writing and producing. Kurtzman talked about what it was like to walk on the Enterprise on J.J. Abrams' set and how everyone involved didn't want to rush the project.
We’re not going to be ready and we don’t want to rush this. We felt very fortunate that the first movie was well received, and the last thing that we wanted to do was destroy that by rushing something. It’s very precious to a lot of people. We love our Trek and we just wanted to keep it safe. why Star Trek is skipping Comic-Con this year >> Posted 06.16.12 by Chris
