J.J. Abrams gives glimpse of new ‘Star Trek’ film


J.J. Abrams is no Trekkie. The director and producer of the new "Star Trek" film, due in 2009, said he was always more of a "Star Wars" guy.

"All my smart friends liked 'Star Trek.' I preferred a more visceral experience," he tells Entertainment Weekly in its latest issue, on newsstands Friday. Abrams took on the "Star Trek" project in hopes of creating a film "that grabbed me the way 'Star Wars' did," he says.

He was also drawn to the franchise's idealism, he says.
