William Shatner And Christopher Lloyd Reteaming For Senior Moment

Great Scott! It seems that Captain Kirk and Doc Brown are coming together for their first new project in thirty-three years, Senior Moment.

Naturally we're talking about actors William Shatner and Christopher Lloyd, who had previously performed together in 1984's Star Trek III: The Search For Spock, Shatner as the iconic captain of the starship Enterprise, and Lloyd as the Klingon Kruge. This new project will see the eighty-six-year-old Shatner portrying a retired Top Gun Navy pilot who counts among his many accomplishments testing vehicles for NASA, and the seventy-eight-year-old Lloyd as his best friend. Reportedly the plot kicks in when the two characters are zipping around California with Shatner driving a vintage convertible hot rod, apparently ignroing various traffic regulations. The timing coincides with a growing movement to get seniors off the road who should no longer be driving. As a result, Shatner's license is revoked, his vehicle impounded. Will the Shat and Lloyd accept this without a fight? We think not!

The script is by Kurt Brungardt (who make his feature debut) and Christopher Momenee, who wrote the 2011 TV novie William & Catherine: A Royal Romance as well as next year's feature Search And Rescue. Directing is Giorgio Serafini, who most recently directed Flashburn and 200 Degrees.

Last year, both Shatner and Lloyd appeared at Bermingham's The NEC for Destination Star Trek, a three-day celebration of the sci-fi series' fiftieth anniversary.
