Last night was the premiere of NBC’s Hollywood Game Night season 3 and Zachary was one of the guests alongside John Legend, Chrissy Teigen, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Giada De Laurentiis and Jane Krakowski. Thanks to my friend Brianne from Kara-Kilmer.net, which recorded the show to us, we have now the full episode added in our video archive. I also made screen captures and added to the gallery, so you can enjoy them as well!
The last project Zach shot before flying to British Columbia was the indie Tallulah, directed by Siân Heder. The film is based in Sian’s screenplay about a free spirit who everybody thinks has kidnapped a baby after she rescues the child from her reckless mother.
The film has Zachary, Ellen Page, Allison Janney, Tammy Blanchard, Evan Jonigkeit, Uzo Aduba, David Zayas and John Hickey. Some pictures from Zach on set was added to our gallery, courtesy of Tallulah the Movie blog.
Zach and Chris Pine have re-negotiated their contracts with Paramount Pictures and Skydance Entertainment for a possible fourth film in the J.J. Abrams-designed Star Trek franchise. In the new contract, The Hollywood Reporter says that Chris Pine has made about $6 million—$3 of which will be for the unnamed third Star Trek movie that began filming this week.
The new contracts will add between $10-$15 million to the third Star Trek’s budget, according to the Reporter, but it seems like a worthy investment. The Pine and Quinto pairing is a key factor in the Star Trek franchise at this point. And though they were contractually obliged to star in three Star Trek films, nothing held them to a fourth. If the third Stark Trek continues the series’ upward box office trend (Stark Trek grossed $385.7 million while Star Trek: Into Darkness made $467 million), then the studios should stick with what works.
The third Stark Trek film is set to hits theaters in 2016.
Star Trek 3 (possibly titled “Star Trek Beyond”) has begun principal photography today at the Squamish Boulders site in British Columbia. Production will continue at the Great Wall Bouders on June 26, 29 and 30. Zach has already shared two pictures of his Spock eyebrows and hairdo
Justin Lin, four-time The Fast and the Furious director, is set to direct from a script by Pegg and Doug Jung, and the film is expected to open in theaters on July 8, 2016.
Watch below this new interview Zach did to Gold Derby, talking about The Slap (which he’s Emmy eligible this year), producing The Chair (also eligible as reality TV), Heroes and 24 return.
