'Star Trek' sequel: 'We're looking at a lot of old episodes for inspiration,' say writers.

That link doesn't actually work for me...........anyhoo, depends what they are looking for and why.

Roddenberry recycled as well.

Let's not discount this may potentially please some fans who actually want a series of their favourite episodes being remade.

EDIT: I got it to work. It just looks like they're rewatching again to get some more feelings about what things work and don't and see if anything might spark a movie idea.

Heck, isn't that how TWOK started out anyway?

I don't wanna shatter your dreams but realism and cynicism would suggest that they'll serve more of the same dish. After all it sold well the first time.

Damn.............I always pick the wrong time to be an optimist!!

However, doing what they are doing right now remains indeed what ended up kickstarting TWOK..........so we shall see.

I agree with the basic analysis that many of the same components will be present...........but then many of the mechanical, visceral, components in the film are in most of the other films as well.

So they didn't entirely deviate from the past movies anyway.

They rewatch old episodes like Bennett and this is the one and only common thing with the twelfth and the second Trek movie. TWOK had a much smaller budget, didn't continue where the last movie left but changed a lot and featured an intellectual in the director's chair and no, I don't consider Meyer to be a demi-god or even a particularly good movie-maker just because of this assessment.

I expect more of the same. Of course not literally the same, many minor things will be different, they don't need to setup characters and literally the half universe and above all the story will have more meat. But their story-telling style won't significantly change.

I guess it will be something like Batman Begins vs. Dark Knight. They are two distinctive movies, slightly connected story- and theme-wise and with a clear Nolan stamp on them.

Jesus, can't anyone crack a frigging half-joke round here anymore?

I'm not going to start discussing Meyer anyway (it's boring, we've done it umpteen times and we both know each other's rough guide to him anyway) but was merely remarking on the process of them going back to looking at things in TOS as a starting point that was quite similar.

We shall find out once more emerges and the information becomes more factual.

It was half and half.

Basically, that was what happened when they started on a sequel to TMP. Bennett did go through TOS for story inspiration and found Khan.............a various few developmental steps etc later...........viola..........a film gets developed out of that basic search.

(that 'viola' covers a few stages and scripts.......but it's a shortcut word!)

However, it was mostly disguising the fact that the 'news' above is (strictly speaking) nothing particularly new anyway because we already know that they have been looking at TOS anyway for months.
