"Lost executive producer Bryan Burk has revealed that he is to join Lost co-creators Damon Lindelof and J.J. Abrams for Star Trek 11. "We're all very excited," Burk told Sci-Fi Wire. "We actually have this thing where we're just not talking about it outside of ... us right now. And to say I'm excited is the understatement of the [year]. ... It's going to be pretty great."
Burk also revealed that early rumors that the story was going to revolve around the early years of Spock and Kirk were false. "I can tell you that that article leaked out prematurely, so there's no formal statement made from any of us, other than we all couldn't be more excited about it," he said.
Burk was asked whether Abrams' longtime friend and frequent star Greg Grunberg would appear in the Trek movie. "First of all, there's no way Greg Grunberg knows what the Federation is," Burk laughed. "When is Greg Grunberg not in a project that we [do]?""
