Mission: Impossible III director JJ Abrams has hit back at reports appearing in the media that he is directing the upcoming Star Trek movie.
The Lost creator is furious as the news was prematurely released and that, details regarding the storyline of the 11th Star Trek movie were incorrectly reported.
“The whole thing was reported entirely without our cooperation. People learned that I was producing a Star Trek film, that I had an option to direct it, they hear rumours of what the thing was going to be and ran with a story that is not entirely accurate," Moviehole quoted Abrams as telling Empire Online.
Though he won’t reveal what the storyline will be about, Abrams hints that it won’t feature Spock or Kirk at all.
Still, Abrams however is not completely ruling out bringing some of the original characters back for the new film. "Those characters are so spectacular. I just think that…you know, they could live again".
