David BoreanazDavid Boreanaz considered for another Star Trek Movie !

TPol from Enterprise take lead in Star Trek: Academy.
For all of you Trekkies out there, you could possibly have some great news heading your way. Though I cannot claim to be a Star Trek nut myself, I have dreamed of becoming a Jedi though, the latest scoops sent in have been enough to gain my full attention.
Star Trek: The Beginning or Star Trek: Academy
My two favorite Star Trek films were Wrath of Khan and The Voyage Home. Khan had the awesome music, which was later used again in Aliens, and Voyage Home featured some of the best Trekky humor [Spock was hilarious!]. Since I spend very little time in front of a television set unless for Halo 2, LOST or American Idol, I cannot say too much about the multiple Star Trek television series out there. However, I cannot help to feel at least a little gitty when I received a scoop that claimed that Paramount was moving forward with another Star Trek movie.
While checking through the emails about a week ago I had received this latest report from ’The Manageress’, claiming that Paramount was working to create Star Trek: Academy.
Paramount are in the early stages of development of another "Star Trek" movie. This one will be set at the Starfleet Academy, and, in some ways, will be a prequel to "Enterprise" ( the character of T’Pol (Jolene Blalock) is the only one from that series that supposed to be in it).
One person they’re considering for Star Trek : Academy is David Boreanaz, of Angel, fame. I don’t know the connection between the creative team and Boreanaz, but he’s a name that we keep hearing (and I’m positive this is a feature film - not a TV series). When/if such an opportunity arises, I would be happy to let you know what the latest is. I believe it’s a long ways off still.
To further add to this scoop sent in on Star Trek: Academy, the good people over at MovieHole have also posted another scoop on an upcoming Star Trek sequel/prequel titled Star Trek: The Beginning. Are we talking about the same film here? If so, I like the title we have better.
According to the scribe, "Star Trek : The Beginning" (please dude, for the sake of Exorcist prequel loathers everywhere, change that title) will be set after the events of TV’s "Enterprise" but before Captain Kirk ever boarded the creamy space-ship.
"We’re looking at a very small group of men and women, particularly focusing on one character," Jendresen says. "There are a couple of ships, including a principal ship, but this is not a traditional captain and crew of a starship story in the least."
Beam Me Up T’Pol.
From the sounds of the report, it does seem that we are discussing the very same movie; and I still do like the title Star Trek: Academy better. No matter what the title, it looks for certain that the next Star Trek film will in fact be centered on the character of T’Pol.
Arm torpedoes and set phasers to stun, we just may have an epic Star Trek film coming our way!
Update: I have been alerted that the working title, Star Trek: Academy has been rumored previously and will not be the title if another Star Trek film were to come our way. It has also been stated that the script for the film has not been given the greenlight yet...
Stay tuned for updates.
