More Star Trek XI updates coming at you and, like all the rest, they are not exactly official or set in stone.

Alex Kurtzman's Star Trek XI Info

The good people over at MTV recently sat down with Alex Kurtzman to discuss Star Trek XI developments and the direction that the film is going. Here is a rundown:

-Film Release: Christmas 2008

- As of right now, the film is titled Star Trek.
"That's the intended title. I don't think we want to put any colons or anything on it," Orci said.

- Yes, J.J. Abrams will direct and produce.

- Prequel or sequel? Still up the air, but we are hoping for prequel. Does the title give you any hint?

- More action than Khan.
"There will be more action in this movie than any 'Trek' that's preceded it," Kurtzman promised. Orci, without discussing a specific budget, added, "It'll be the biggest one."

- Mission 1: Increase the fanbase.
"The challenge of the movie is to be 100 percent true to the fanbase but also to bring in a whole new group of people who've never seen 'Trek' before," Kurtzman said.

- Damon, Brody, Sinise? No confirmation on casting, but Kurtzman does admit to being a Damon fan.
"I'm the hugest Matt Damon fan ever. If he became [Kirk], great."

- If begins at Starfleet Academy, it won't end there. Orci and Kurtzman both confirm that Star Trek will be a starship-based adventure.

- Prequel, maybe. Reimagining, yes. Think of Batman Begins for point of reference.

- Shatner and Nimoy have both met with Orci, Kurtzman and Abrams for the project.

- Directed by Abrams, we are guaranteed a film that takes a hard look at the characters and 'the human soul.'

Check out the entire report on Star Trek XI at MTV.

If all goes to plan, Star Trek XI will open to theatres in 2008.

Stay tuned for updates.
