Logan Says Internet Rumours Are 'Despicable'

Writer John Logan says he's poured his heart into the screenplay of the upcoming 'Star Trek: Nemesis,' and he doesn't want Internet spoilers ruining the film's impact.

"I never comment on Internet rumours because they're so despicable," Logan told Cinescape Magazine's Arnold T. Blumberg (via the Trekker Newsletter).

"A work in progress is an ugly thing. A writer should only be judged when the work is completed. If I were to tell you the plot of Casablanca, you would say, 'That sounds like an OK thriller,' but when you see the movie, it is so much more than what just the plot would suggest."

With many spoilers available on the Internet, Logan hoped that there would be some developments which audiences wouldn't know about in advance. "From the few rumours that made it past me, I can say that a great many of them are not right," he said. "There should be a few surprises left, if we can keep them secret."

The finished product promises to shake things up a bit, according to the writer. "We are not leaving the toys where we found them," he said. "'Star Trek: Nemesis' totally came from my heart, and I want to sit in the captain's chair as long as I can."
