startrekfinalpostersmall-033109With just a little over a month before Paramount Pictures releases Star Trek (May 1, 2009), the studio is moving forward with a sequel and has hired Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman (who wrote the first film) and Damon Lindelof to pen the screenplay.

Director J.J. Abrams will be back to produce alongside his Bad Robot partner Bryan Burk, but no decision has been made yet on whether Abrams will return to direct the sequel.  The three screenwriters will also be receiving producing credit for the sequel.

Read the rest after the jump, plus check out some new photos and high-res art of the final U.S. poster. (more…)

lostkate-031709In this week’s official Lost podcast, to be posted on ABC.com on Thursday, executive producers Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof will formally invite viewers to suggest a nickname for the season’s final moment.

From TV Guide:

In seasons past, that head-scratcher has been dubbed “Bagel” (Walt is abducted by the Others!), “Challah” (Penny’s research team locates the island!), “The Rattlesnake in the Mailbox” (Jack is flashing forward!) and “Frozen Donkey Wheel” (which, quite literally, Ben rotated to move the island).

The script for the finale has recently been completed and filming on the episode is at least a week away.  Submissions can be directed to ABC.com/asklost.  The pick will be announced on ABC’s March 26th podcast.
