Chris Pine Signed up for two more Star Trek movies

Hope I don't get into trouble for posting a new thread here...

I read an interview with Pine in todays Mirror (British newspaper). In it they ask - "William Shatner made seven Star Trek feature movies. How many do you think you will make?"

He is quoted as replying "I'm commited to two more at this point. Er, not sure if I should have said that [laughs]"

Unfortunately I cannot find a weblink to this interview.

Re: Chris Pine Signed up for two more Star Trek movies

Oh cool! Is this definitely a new interview? IIRC, the cast signed a three-movie deal at the start, should STXI have been successful.

Four big budget, action packed Trek movies sounds good to me!

I guess we can now count on a whale and a Borg film.

Or at least a whale of a Borg film.

Or Borg Whales?

This is good news. I thought he only signed on for three movies total. I wonder if the others have signed on for more?

I saw a video interview from the London premiere where he only mentioned 1 more film.

I can certainly see the appeal of Borg orcas. Given what I've been getting from the Into Darkness clips, Borg orcas are a real possibility for the next film.

This is good news. More of a good thing, as far as I'm concerned.

The borg belongs in the mid 90's prime techobabble universe where the likes of La Forge, Nelix and Harry Kim were the faces of star trek.

To put the borg in the next film would be creative and subsequently commercial suicide IMO.

Not if they were given a makeover. Drop the obvious rubber costumes and Uncle Fester face-paint, use CG to replace body parts with machinery. Make the collective more diverse and horrifying, as in the novel The Return -nonhumanoid Borg, grotesque organic machinery. Steampunk horror show super Borg. It could be awesome.
