DUBAI---Looking for a "vertical city"
to stand in for a futuristic world,
actors and filmmakers involved in the
film Star Trek Beyond ended up
among the gleaming towers of Dubai.
"We came searching for the future
and found it," said Jeffrey Chernov,
one of the film's executive producers.
Star Trek Beyond, the third movie in
the reboot of the science-fiction
series, is the latest film to be partially
shot in the United Arab Emirates.
Others drawn here include
filmmakers like JJ Abrams, who
helmed the last two Star Trek films
and shot parts of the upcoming Star
Wars: Episode VII in Abu Dhabi. The
city was also a location for the most
recent Fast & Furious sequel.
Chernov also was an executive
producer in 2011's Mission:
Impossible---Ghost Protocol, which
saw actor Tom Cruise scale parts of
Dubai's Burj Khalifa skyscraper.
Actor Chris Pine, who plays Capt
James T Kirk described opening up the
blinds of his hotel room to look out on
"such a stunning city. It looks like
whatever tomorrow will be," Pine said.
"It's future land. It's incredible." (AP)
