Given the success of 'Star Trek' and its upcoming sequel 'Star Trek Into Darkness,' we wouldn't expect either film's stars to follow up with regular TV careers. Yet, shortly following news that Karl Urban had joined FOX's J.J. Abrams-produced drama 'Human,' we've learned that 'Go On' star John Cho has booked yet another NBC role for upcoming pilot 'Sleepy Hollow,' written by 'Star Trek' writer Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, but how long will Cho stick around?

The Mummy Returns
Universal Picutres

In Hollywood, often people fail upwards, as there no other reason why Universal would hire Len Wiseman to helm their 'Mummy' Reboot (or re-reboot, if the 1930's and 40's versions count). But the man behind the 'Total Recall' remake is very close to being chosen to direct the film.

Alex Kurtzman Interview: Talking ‘People Like Us’ and the Secrets of ‘Star Trek 2′ and ‘Amazing Spider-Man 2′

Alex Kurtzman has crafted a remarkable career as a genre film and television writer/producer. He and partner Roberto Orci have been attached to some of the most beloved science-fiction offerings of the last several years. From televisions ‘Fringe,’ to the wildly successful cinematic ‘Star Trek’ reboot (as well as the sequel that is currently in production), the pair has left a sizable imprint on the industry. As just one example of their upcoming projects, and prior the release of the first, the writing duo has been tapped to write ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2.'

But roughly eight-years-ago the prolific geek and action-centric scribe felt the urge to explore the possibilities that a smaller, more intimate drama may offer. Inspired by events from his own life, Kurtzman began to draft a script for what became ‘People Like Us,’ the story of two siblings who grew up in different households, who live in vastly divergent worlds and yet come together and connect as adults.

With the film’s release this Friday, June 29th Kurtzman unveils his directorial debut, as well as a small piece of the most private corners of his own experience. It is a film one rarely sees these days. It invites the audience into a, dare I say it, adult conversation about the imperfect nature of relationships and the missteps that we often make that can still manage to bring us to something beautiful.

We had the opportunity to speak with Kurtzman recently about shifting gears for ‘People Like Us’, the movies he credits with changing his life and crafting large-scale event films in a post-Nolan Hollywood.
