Another never-made movie: Star Trek a la Band of Brothers

Before J.J. Abrams got the chance to make his own Star Trek movie, Erik Jendersen, a writer who worked on Band of Brothers, wrote a proposal for basically a huge Star Trek war movie, set between Enterprise and the original series.

Merrick at Ain't It Cool News analyzes that script, which now won't get made but has ideas I find tantalizing. Star Trek has such a big universe, and I love to see that universe used in big and interesting ways.

In other movie news, for a movie that's actually a "go" to make (alert, happyspector), Tom Waits will play the Devil for Terry Gilliam! And here is the fan site page devoted to that film, which will be called The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus.
