A true labor of love for director Adam Nimoy, the son of the late actor Leonard Nimoy. This film takes an up close and personal look at the life and career of actor Leonard Nimoy, and his iconic character Mr. Spock. It will include cast and crew interviews as well as interviews with people connected with Star Trek, and their fans.
Around Thanksgiving 2014, Adam Nimoy started working with his father on a documentary about Mr. Spock, to commemorate Star Trek: The Original Series’s 50th anniversary. After his father’s passing on February 27, 2015, an outpouring from Star Trek fans convinced Adam to broaden the scope of the film to encompass his father’s life and career beyond the iconic Mr. Spock. The film also reportedly documents the director’s own personal experience of being the son of a celebrity. The ups and the downs.
Adam Nimoy launched a Kickstarter campaign in June 2015, with an aim to collect $600,000. By the end of the campaign, 9.439 backers pledged $662,640, making it the most successful crowdfund to date.
Interviews include Leonard Nimoy, Zachary Quinto, William Shatner, George Takei, J.J. Abrams, Simon Pegg, Zoe Saldana, and Jason Alexander.
For the Love of Spock will be released in select theaters and on VOD September 9th, 2016. You can also pre-order the film on iTunes — http://apple.co/29RMhu7
