Found a great article detailing a radio interview with Kevin Smith and a movie he may or may not have seen.  Of course, NDA’s would forbid anyone from giving anything (or nothing?) away about a movie he may or may not have seen.  That is, if this theoretical NDA were to be somehow connected to a theroretical viewing of a movie . . . that he may or may not have seen.

Smith: I saw a movie last night that I cannot talk about.

Host: Was it good?

Smith: It was phenomenal.

Host: Any stars, any break out stars, and do they trek?

Smith: The stars absolutely trek in this film. It is fantastic. Anybody who was worried doesn’t need to be worried–about this film I cannot talk about…It was in very capable hands. The director did a phenomenal job–the director and his crew. Top notch cast and the guy that plays the lead is an instant star. That dude is going to be so famous. He is so wonderful. He picked up a role that I would say is pretty challenging for someone to step into the shoes of, because it is a role that has been played before many times by the same guy.

Host: How do you out Shatner, Shatner?

Smith: I don’t know what you are talking about.

Host: I was just saying that as an expression.

Smith: Yes, absolutely, in a world of expressions, I would agree with that…I am so not good with this game, you are going to bury me man.

    I have great hopes/fears for the new Star Trek movie. It falls into the Nemesis trap of being helmed by someone with no ties to Trek. However J.J. Abrahms did a fantastic job with Mission Impossible 3, and that could have royally sucked eggs. I don’t know anything about the guy playing Shatner, I mean Kirk, but Heroes own Sylar is Spock, which gives me hope. Plus Simon “Hot Fuzz” Pegg as Scotty gives me hope as well.

    Next summer won’t likely be as great as this summer, but there is hope.

    Say what you will about Kevin Smith’s movies but there’s no doubt that this guy is a hardcore geek.  If he says that the new Star Trek movie which he may or may not have seen is awesome, I think it’ll appease the fanbase.  

  • I still think one major factor in favor of this movie, Leonard Nimoy came out of retirement to do this.  He was done with acting and was concentrating on his photo hobby.  When they approached him about Star Trek Generations, he wanted more involvement (and when they had approached him, they were already locked into certain script elements).  I don’t think he would have given this movie a whiff if it looked like it didn’t have any quality to it.

    Several of the other actors have already been signed for multiple ST movies following the 2009 movie.
