I have a friend who was on the set for Anakin falling into the lava in ROTS. He had to sign his soul away to see it.

It was very hard on ME not to beg him to tell me something

Re: Budget cut/location change for Trek 3

The joke about ST: Into Vancouver gets me wondering, though. Nicholas Campbell as an admiral? Ian Tracey or Venus Terzo as one of Kirk's peers in ship-captaincy? :-)

To have been there, to witness that? I'd sign my soul away...if it didn't already have a couple of liens on it between the wife and the Devil.

Re: Budget cut/location change for Trek 3

Yeah, this makes sense. Into Darkness performed below expectations and reducing the budget is just good business sense. They did the same with Wrath of Khan and we all know how that turned out. If anything, a budget cut is a good thing. A smaller budget means less pressure for the film to succeed and more creative freedom for the writer and director.

What? And deny ourselves three years of speculating, whining, bitching, and trashing. Let's have no more of that kind of talk now.

Yes, I agree with what you're saying, but the budget cut for the next Bad Robot outing will likely be fairly trivial in comparison to the dramatic drop between TMP and TWOK.

From what I've read, you can count on pretty much the same production values and "on screen" money for Trek 3.

Why can't they make three movies in a row and release them yearly like LOTR and the Hobbit??

I'd say the biggest reason is that the studio doesn't want to front that much money at the risk of not making it back.

They should film it here in South Africa. We've got great locations, lower taxes, and if you want strange new worlds, there really is no stranger place anywhere. The only problem is that it nearly killed Benedict Cumberbatch.

His car was stolen and he was locked in the boot (trunk for Americans). I believe he was held captive for a whole night.

This is for the best. STID cost a little too much, and had a little too many huge action scenes. I'm ready for something more small scale and more personal movie.
