William Shatner to Direct Movie About William Shatner

Posted: June 17th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
William Shatner to Direct Movie About William ShatnerSubmit Comment
During the Banff World Television Festival, actor William Shatner accepted a lifetime achievement award and has also spoke about his next project, entitled "The Captains."

The TV documentary will be directed by Shatner and will focus on his early life and rise to fame on "Star Trek." The actor said that it will be a lesson in "what not to do."

The movie will also look at other "Star Trek" captains and will begin filming next month. It will air in Canada on Movie Central next December.

"We are thrilled to be partnering with the legendary William Shatner to produce a unique and never-before-seen view of his life," said Movie Central.

Meanwhile, Shatner is still worth $600 million from his Priceline.com deal.

I hope James Cameron reads this and realizes that he couldn't afford to blow ol' Billy Shatner. Some stars still shine bright out there without being the end of a tunnel which turns out to be a celebrity caste rectum.

So it will be about his rise to fame, and how all the other Star Trek captains sucked in comparison to him right?

Shatner lived in a camper after filming the 60's Star Trek... wonder if he's honest enough to mention that?

It must be funny... his biggest fortune (by FAR!) came from doing commercials. Good for him for sticking it out this long.

I'm sort of doubting that Shatner will include the scene where he hired a couple of prostitutes working for Heidi Fleiss to "watch" him while he smoked a little crack out of his crack pipe

Shatner is the man! He and Patrick Stewart need to hook up again on another project soon. The scenes between them in Star Trek Generations might have been some of the best in the entire series history. I'd love to see JJ incorporate these two somehow in the next Trek film like he did Nimoy last time.

Hopefully this is as good as Star Trek V!

Patrick Stewart is awesome... Met him at Comic Con in Philly last weekend and was probably the nicest person ever.

@dark - great quote.

Star Trek 4 has been a favorite of mine for a long time. You can even get someone that's not into Trek to watch it (20th century, save the whales, etc.). Smart story.
