It is now in the "business/logistics" phase, which means a script is ready, and now they'll have to lay down the budget for the film. According to TrekMovie.com (a very reliable source for all things Trek), Skydance will be returning to help finance the film, though they say the film might require more backers. Even so, I have no doubts the film will be helped along by Alibaba Pictures, and other international film financiers.
Here's what Trekmovie.com has to say:
Appearing with his Boys in the Band co-stars on the Sirius Radio Andy show, Zachary Quinto responded to a question from host Andy Cohen about the status of the next Star Trek feature film:
I think we are going to learn more in the next few weeks actually. There is a fourth movie that is being developed right now. They brought in a director who is actually a wonderful woman who I have worked with before, named S.J. Clarkson into the mix to develop and helm that project. It’s now kind of in the business, logistical kind of phase.
This comment is consistent with other recent comments from both Quinto and co-star Simon Pegg, expressing optimism that the sequel to Star Trek Beyond, first announced two years ago, is finally moving forward. Of course the business and logistics Quinto refers to are not a small issue. A script has reportedly already been approved, but that still leaves the issue of setting a budget and arranging financing. It has already been announced that Skydance, who were financing partners for the last two Trek films, is returning, but additional partners may be required.
As you can read in the article above, it seems the Kelvin crew will be making an appearance in the other Trek film being produced by Quentin Tarantino. Only time will tell which of these films will come out on top, or even if both will make it to the finish line.
Everybody has that song that they can listen to over and over and over again, until the people around you are begging for the sweet release of death.
So what is a song you like that you can listen to time and time again without getting tired of it?
For me, "Time to Be Awesome," from the MLP movie is that song. It's upbeat, and the lyrics are rather deep considering their context, and the song is uplifting. It provides me motivation when I feel awful.
Earlier today, Roseanne Barr, known as Roseanne Conner from the hit TV show "Roseanne," and the new ABC sitcom reboot of the same name, was fired from the show (and thus the show will be canceled), and her talent agency, after racist remarks she made on Twitter.
Line “We are all greatly distressed by the disgraceful and unacceptable tweet from Roseanne Barr this morning,” the agency’s leadership said in an internal memo to company employees. “What she wrote is antithetical to our core values, both as individuals and as an agency. Consequently, we have notified her that we will not represent her. Effective immediately, Roseanne Barr is no longer a client.”
Barr signed with ICM Partners last summer, ahead of the premiere of the Roseanne revival on ABC.
The agency’s decision to drop Barr followed a morning of racist tweets in which Barr described Valerie Jarrett, a former key adviser to President Obama, as an offspring of the “Muslim Brotherhood & Planet of the Apes.” She followed the tweet with an apology after a social media firestorm of criticism, saying it was a “joke” and that she was leaving Twitter. The announcement by ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey that the network was canceling the revival series soon followed. Disney CEO Bob Iger weighed in shortly afterward, supporting the cancellation decision, tweeting “There was only one thing to do here, and that was the right thing.”
I have this here and not in the Holodeck because I'm curious as to what people think about this trend. Roseanne certainly isn't the first, though she has created a strong backlash I haven't seen in a while. Still, Donald Trump, the current President of the United States, engages in hateful tweeting almost every day, and has sparked numerous backlashes as a result. Other well known personalities have done the same.
What is it that brings people to act this way on Twitter and other social media? Is this modern discourse? Have we truly limited our contrasting viewpoints to a couple of hundred characters on a social media app?
More so, why the increasing racism, bigotry, and homophobia, and why through outlets like these?
