Captains New-Series

Oh yes.

A new iteration of the Star Trek TV franchise to be produced by Alex Kutzman (who co-wrote the 2009 film reboot with JJ Abrams) of which CBS president David Stapf sez:

There is no better time to give ‘Star Trek’ fans a new series than on the heels of the original show’s 50th anniversary celebration. …Everyone here has great respect for this storied franchise, and we’re excited to launch its next television chapter in the creative mind and skilled hands of Alex Kurtzman, someone who knows this world and its audience intimately.

…then he’s out of the movie business.

In an interview with the New York Times on Saturday, director James Cameron said that he’ll make one more Avatar movie after the sequel and second sequel he already has planned, then that’s it.

He has too much money and is far more into deep-sea diving now. Sez he:

I’m not going to produce other people’s movies for them. I’m not interested in taking scripts. And that all sounds I suppose a little bit restricted, but the point is I think within the “Avatar” landscape I can say everything I need to say that I think needs to be said, in terms of the state of the world and what I think we need to be doing about it. And doing it in an entertaining way. And anything I can’t say in that area, I want to say through documentaries, which I’m continuing.
