WRATH OF KHAN director will have memoirs to sell at festival
“Star Trek: Wrath of Khan” director Nicholas Meyer will have copies of his book, “A View from the Bridge: Memories of Star Trek and a Life in Hollywood” for sale at Modern Film Fest.
Meyer has only 25 copies of the book for sale at Modern Film Fest and they will be available at two meet and greet events, including one Friday, Oct. 5 at 6:15 p.m. and one Saturday, Oct. 6 at 12 p.m., as well as the screening of, “Star Trek: Wrath of Khan” at 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 5. The books will be available after his Q&A after the screening at the historic Gem Theatre, Kannapolis, N.C. The books sell for $16 each.
“A View from the Bridge” tells the story of how when Nicholas Meyer was asked to direct the troubled second, “Star Trek” film, he was something less than a true believer. A bestselling author and successful director, he had never been a fan of the TV series. But as he began to ponder the appeal of Kirk, Spock, et al., he realized that their story was a classical nautical adventure yarn transplanted into space and-armed with that insight-set out on his mission: to revitalize Trek.
