The Dr. Who Movie Mr. Nimoy Never Directed
While reading up on Benedict Cumberbatch I found out that he was asked to play Dr. Who in the British TV series but declined to do so. From a few interviews I remembered that Mr. Nimoy was approached to direct a Dr. Who movie adapted to a U.S. audience by Denny Martin Flinn who also had a hand in writing Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. What I didn't know so far was why the movie never got off the ground. Amused by this second coincidence after both were involved with projects about Vincent van Gogh, I thought this was as good a time as any to find out. To my surprise I learned that there had been more than just talk but that the production company had let the rights slip at the last moment. Read more about it here.
To take his mind off his divorce, antimatter physicist Gus Lloyd started programming an action video game where he was the hero, his ex-wife Lauren Ashborne was the sidekick, and his father Jordan Kenneth Lloyd was Sebastian Jackal, a satanic figure who wanted to destroy the world with an army of thugs based on the people who made Gus' life a living hell. The antimatter experiments Gus and his friend Peter Rucker were running went haywire, reading the game's villain file and sending them into the real world to act out their programming. Gus, Lauren, and Peter are then forced to play the game for real. IMDB
