Paramount has got balls the size of Grape Fruits to allow any first time director access to their biggest and most profitable franchise.

I can't believe that I live in a world now where I'm actually dreading the release of a new Star Trek movie.  It's going to be so bad.

What else is out there? A big budget Battlestar Galatica with the 2.0 cast? I'd go for that in a heartbeat.

Oh, we also have Jupiter Ascending and Guardians Of The Galaxy, which I can't wait to see.  So... nevermind.

Boy, it's REALLY saying something that the Wachowskis, the guys who created THE MATRIX, are doing their own space opera and I haven't heard ANYONE talk about how excited they are for it because Guardians Of The Galaxy is coming out a few weeks later.

Definitely looking towards Guardians Of The Galaxy. As for the Brothers, I haven't heard dick about anything regarding production or casting. Nada. Had totally forgotten about it till you brought it up just now. What does that say about the state of their affairs?

It could be a Wonderswan type of thing: you can do everything right, get the best components, push the right envelopes, have the best product, and still fail.

I think the big difference between the two projects is that Jupiter looks big and grandiose and gorgeous, but Guardians looks FUN.  Sure, it looks cheaper, it's more colourful, the cast isn't as famous and it isn't well known, but it looks like so much fun.  Movies always underestimate the importance of fun.

I haven't been posting to much sci-fi stuff, because well, there's so much. There has been only a handful of stories regarding Jupiter. But the brothers have always been that way. Just give you a basic idea and then later drop it on us.

I take a wait and see attitude with the bros. because their last two projects sucked in monumental ways.

Although to be fair to Jupiter, a lot of the ink I've been seeing for Guardians (before the trailer hit, at least) was how every "insider" was expecting it to be Marvel's first flop, that it didn't have a chance because it was based on a comic even comic book fans don't know anything about, that it was too weird and different.

Until the movie screens, all the articles are usually columns dedicated to one or two little pieces of new information, rampant speculation, or just hype.

FYI... The Watchowskis Bros was made up of Andy and Laurence (Larry) Watchowskis. Laurence has since become Lana.
So I guess the reference to Bros., is no more.

Mini-Bio
Lana Wachowski - previously Laurence (Larry) Wachowski - is a sibling of Andy Wachowski, of the creative 'Watchowskis' duo behind ground-breaking movies like The Matrix (1999) and Cloud Atlas (2012). Born to mother Lynne, a nurse, and father Ron, a businessman of Polish descent, she grew up in Chicago, in a tight, creative relationship with her brother Andy. After both siblings dropped out of college, they started a construction business, while writing at the same time. Since 1995, after their script Assassins (1995) was made into a movie, which led to a Warner Bros contract, they devoted themselves to their movie careers. In 2012, during interviews for Cloud Atlas and in her acceptance speech for the Human Rights Campaign's Visibility Award, Lana spoke about her experience of being a transgender woman, sacrificing her much cherished anonymity out of a sense of responsibility. Lana is known to be extremely well-read, loves comic books and exploring ideas of imaginary worlds, and was inspired by Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) in creating Cloud Atlas.

Yeah, that was a while ago.  In fact, I'm so used to LANA now that it's weird looking back and seeing the brothers.

Film School Rejects offers up some food for thought (or is that thought for food?) about why it doesn't matter who directs Star Trek III.
