'Girl Walks Into A Bar' completed for web release

The next feature to star Zachary Quinto will be the web-only film 'Girl Walks Into A Bar' directed by Sebastian Gutierrez and co-starring Carla Gugino and Josh Hartnett.

"We want to prove that Web distribution is a viable medium for theatrical quality movies which rely on story, characters and dialogue as opposed to special effects," said Sebastian Gutierrez. "For many reasons the theatrical indie landscape has changed drastically in the last few years, leaving many potential breakout hits without an audience. We are excited to break the rules of feature films by letting people watch our movie for free online."

Zachary plays a dentist who hires a contract killer (Gugino) to murder his wife. In doing so he unwittingly sets off a chain of events which ripples through the mobsters, strippers and lowlifes of the LA bar scene.

The film will be available in October 2010 through Hulu and Youtube. It is not yet clear whether overseas viewers will be able to view it.

Lance Mazmanian posted news on his official website today which gave more information on his upcoming feature film project with Before the Door.

"I'm collaborating with the gents on a very unique feature film that has the potential to seriously shake things up around the world, in a good way.

Indeed, with the manner in which the story is built, there is literally something for everyone. And, it contains a central emotional/narrative element that has never been seen on film, that I know of.

Zachary Quinto, the potential lead, will be in every shot (minus 'establishing' stuff)"

Nimoy - "It's not fair on Zach for me to continue"

Leonard Nimoy has spoken of his desire to leave the Spock game to Zachary. The 79 year old actor told Kevin Williamson at the QMI agency that he would not appear again as Spock in the rebooted Star Trek series.

"I want to get off the stage. Also, I don’t think it would be fair to Zachary Quinto, he’s a terrific actor, he looks the part, and it’s time to give him some space. And I’m very flattered the character will continue." he said, also stating that after his Fringe appearance as William Bell was done, he would retire from acting altogether. "I’ve been doing this professionally for 60 years, I love the idea of going out on a positive note. I’ve had a great, great time."

Zach recently joked that he would personally request Nimoy return to play Spock in Star Trek 12, which according to Zoe Saldana, will have a shooting date announced within a month.

Today Zach commented; "There’s not even a script and Leonard just announced his retirement,” said Quinto. “He’s not going to do another movie.

“Frankly, Leonard has got a mind of his own and he’s going to do what he wants regardless of what other people tell him. I’m just glad that he’s my friend.”

Zachary Quinto : Nothing Trek related for 2 years

In a telephone interview with Wired.com Zach has distanced himself from Star Trek-related activity for the next two years.

He told interviewer Gus Mastrapa “I’m stepping away from Star Trek for at least two years — no movies, no conventions, no anything for a while.”

He also stated “I’m stepping away from that genre and exploring a lot of other territory,” Whether this includes the fantasy series Heroes was not clear, but his comments may worry producers at Heroes who are currently pitching for a fifth season to NBC.

UK based Constellation Events currently have Zach announced as their first guest for a Glasgow convention in July.

The statement probably would not apply to promotional appearances such as any which might occur at San Diego Comic-Con or similar events, as these would normally be within the contractual obligations for Star Trek and Heroes.

You can read the full article here
UPDATE - From the horse's mouth
i have been inundated with questions and confusion about a comment i made during an interview with wired - about the new atari star trek online game - in which i said i am stepping away from trek for the next two years. obviously i will be a part of any upcoming films... reprising my role as spock. what i meant was that in the meantime i won't be making any public appearances related to the franchise - or doing anymore auxiliary projects pertaining to the trek universe. i will be focusing my efforts on other projects and preparing to shoot the next film - which will be released in june of 2012... two years from now. hence the no trek for two years remark. worry not trekkers. it was a misunderstanding of context. i am not spock. but i am spock. all at the same time.
