Paramount greenlights new Trek movie starring George Takei

From George Takei's Facebook page:
Friends, I'm thrilled to share this news with you today. As announced at Emerald City Comicon, where I'm appearing this weekend, Paramount Pictures has green-lit a new Star Trek Movie entitled "Excelsior" in which I will play the captain. This announcement is part of Paramount Studio's 100th-year anniversary campaign. The studio has acknowledged the fan enthusiasm for this concept ever since I app...eared in command of the vessel in "The Undiscovered Country." J.J. Abrams will direct, with Robert Orci again writing the screenplay.

My co-star in Allegiance, Paulo Montalban, has been cast opposite me to play the mercurial "Agha," the grandson of Khan (played by Ricardo Montalban in the Second Star Trek Movie). Also featured are Gilbert Gottfried (playing a wily Ferengi First Officer) and Lisa Lampanelli (as a Bajoran security officer).
More to come on this breaking story soon. Thanks again for the years of support, and I'll see you on the Bridge of "Excelsior."
(btw, he posted this April 1st )

I thought the point of an April Fool's joke is to actually fool someone.

Re: Paramount greenlights new Trek movie starring George Takei

Let me admit it right now... he fooled me! I was thinking that given how much Paramount would have to pay to extend their contracts with Chris Pine and Zoe Saldana, since it's clear that JJAbrams can't do 3 movies in 5 years, and this would also open the growing Asian markets to Trek... but oy, I'm an idiot! THIS YEAR is Paramount's 100th year, so it wouldn't come out in the 100th year.

The question is, does George know it's an April Fool's Joke?

George Takei's Sulu was always far, far from being a remotely interesting character.
