“Star Trek” sequel begins principal photography

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: For a little while there, it sounded like J.J. Abrams wouldn’t be able to return to the “Star Trek” realm for an anticipated follow-up to his massive franchise reboot. The man’s busy, and on his “Super 8” promo tour, he hedged bets on coming back for “Star Trek 2.” But rest easy, Trekkies. Abrams is back in the director’s chair, and production on the sequel is officially underway.
Paramount Pictures announced that principal photography has commenced in Los Angeles, as the production eyes a May 17, 2013 release. Returning cast members include Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, John Cho, Bruce Greenwood, Simon Pegg, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, and Anton Yelchin. They are joined by new cast members Benedict Cumberbatch, Alice Eve and Peter Weller.
The “Star Trek 2” script was written by Alex Kurtzman, Robert Orci and “Lost” mastermind Damon Lindelof.

Benedict Cumberbatch snags major “Star Trek” sequel role

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: J.J. Abrams’ “Star Trek” sequel already ranks high on our Need-To-See list (though we’ll have to wait until 2013) until we’re able to take the next adventure with Capt. Kirk (Chris Pine), Dr. Spock (Zachary Quinto) and the crew of the Enterprise. But new casting news has us looking for a wormhole to 2013 so we can see this sequel now.
Benedict Cumberbatch has been confirmed as Abrams’ villain for the sequel, according to THR. Though some recognize him for the part he plays in Steven Spielberg’s “War Horse,” Cumberbatch also currently is redefining the role of Sherlock Holmes in the modern, BBC take on the classic detective. (If you haven’t caught up with the series yet, please do so. It’s amazing, and Cumberbatch is unreal.)
“Although sources would not comment on the character and Abrams keeping story details close to the vest, it is believed that Cumberbatch will play the movie’s villain,” the trade notes.
Cumberbatch also can be seen as Gary Oldman’s right-hand spy in “Tinker, Tailor,” and he’s lending his voice to two featured characters in Peter Jackson’s “The Hobbit.” To say that he’s blowing up at the moment would be an understatement. It couldn’t happen to a more talented actor.

Zachary Quinto formally comes out as a gay man

HollywoodNews.com: Zachary Quinto has never formally addressed his sexuality, but has now come out as an openly gay man.
Quinto was recently addressing his work with the revival of the play ‘Angels in America’ to ‘New York’ magazine when he revealed what many had speculated about, states RadarOnline.com.
While commenting that the work had been the most challenging and rewarding, he revealed he also felt that “as a gay man, it made me feel like there’s still so much work to be done, and there’s still so many things that need to be looked at and addressed.”
Do you think it’s good that he opened up about this or should he not have to?

Deadline Hollywood reports that Quinto would appear in a “major arc” of the FX show as Chad, the gay former owner of the house occupied by Ben Harmon (Dylan McDermott) and his wife Vivien (Connie Britton) who, dealing with the aftermath of Ben’s adultery, move along with their kids into a new house that seems to know all about their fears and plays on them.

Damon Lindelof diving into “Star Trek” sequel script

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Damon Lindelof went off the grid after “Lost” wrapped.
Hard to blame him. The media blasted its white-hot spotlight on Lindelof and his creative partner, Carlton Cuse, as the primetime television phenom approached its highly anticipated conclusion. Those who follow Lidelof on Twitter (@DamonLidelof) received infrequent updates during his European vacation … most of them about food or his inability to watch his beloved Lakers team as they made their recent title run.
But today, new news broke on Lindelof’s feed. He’s back in L.A. He’s getting back to work. And his next project is a script for the sequel to J.J. Abram’s “Star Trek” reboot, scheduled for release in 2012.
“Vacation officially over,” Lindelof tweeted. “Ready to boldly go.”
So are we. Last summer’s “Star Trek” reboot but the franchise back on the pop culture map, plugging younger actors like Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto into timeless roles once occupied by William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy.
TrekMovie.com culled a few details on the direction of the sequel, which will be co-written by “Trek” collaborators Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci. The duo claims to the fan site that they have a “front runner” for a villain — stop hoping for Khan — and that the story will focus primarily on the newly established Enterprise team learning to maneuver as a family.
It’s going to be difficult living up to Abrams’ first pass at “Trek.” The pieces are in place, particularly with this new cast. But the next step will tell if we have a short experiment on our hands, or the makings of a lengthy run, similar to the kind enjoyed by the initial “Trek” actors. Lord knows there are plenty of stories from the “Trek” canon to tell. Now we just have to wait and see if Lindelof, Kurtzman and Orci choose wisely.

Tribeca Film Festival: “Murderball” Director’s Feature debut

By Scott Feinberg
On Saturday evening, “Monogamy” (video preview) — the feature debut of Dana Adam Shapiro, who won an Oscar for co-directing the great documentary “Murderball” (2005) — premiered at the Borough of Manhattan Community College as part of the ninth annual Tribeca Film Festival. Ironically, it followed a screening at the same location of a new documentary about New York’s disgraced ex-Governor Eliot Spitzer, but I digress…
The film stars Chris Messina, the oblivious bridegroom-to-be in “Vicky Cristina Barcelona” (2008) and neglected husband in “Julie & Julia” (2009), and Rashida Jones, the wife in “I Love You, Man” (2009) and regular on TV’s “The Office” and “Parks and Recreation,” as a hip, modern, engaged couple who learn some unsettling things about each other as their wedding day nears.
Messina’s Theo and Jones’s Nat live together in Brooklyn. He’s a frustrated artist, barely makes ends meet as a photographer who gets most of his work taking wedding photos for other couples, but eventually creating a side-business called “Gumshoot” in which he is hired by clients to covertly photograph them throughout the day. One, a beautiful young blonde who turns out to be an “exhibitionist,” tempts his wandering eye, which is perhaps more inclined to wander than usual because Nat, of late, is less inclined to meet his animalistic hunger for sex. (Think Marlon Brando in “A Streetcar Named Desire,” only wearing a dog mask left over from Halloween.) For Theo, what begins as an erotic curiosity evolves into a peeping-tom obsession that causes him to neglect his fiancee, even when she is hospitalized with a staph infection. Little things (forgetting to bring her guitar to the hospital) take on bigger meaning (perhaps even overdramatically), and the couple soon find themselves in peril.
In Messina’s highest-profile roles heretofore, he has, quite frankly, specialized in playing nebbishes (who, several friends have independently mentioned to me, chew food like a cow), so I was rather surprised to see him playing a psychologically-complex, sexually-assertive, rough-around-the-edges man (who, I must admit, chews food like a cow) — and quite impressively. In fact, he somewhat reminded me of a young Gene Hackman, who, you may recall, conducted some surveillance of his own in “The French Connection” (1971) and “The Conversation” (1974).
As for Jones (who, incidentally, is the daughter of the musician/record producer Quincy Jones and actress Peggy Lipton), she definitely possesses the beauty and magnetic quality that stars are [...]
