For the Love of Spock is a Documentary on Leonard Nimoy and Spock

By   /   Mar 29, 2015

Adam Nimoy, son of Leonard Nimoy announced that he is planning on producing and directing a documentary named ‘For the Love of Spock’.

In an exclusive interview with Variety, Adam Nimoy said, “This will be a tribute to my dad and Spock,” Adam Nimoy told Variety. “We have plenty to work from because my dad loved telling stories and he was very fond of the role.”

Last month Leonard Nimoy died of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, although Mr. Nimoy (late) was suffering from the disease, he continued on to work on the project. Adam and his father even discussed the documentary two days before his death. They both agreed that the documentary must focus on the portrayal of Mr. Nimoy and Spock.

“He felt as if he had plenty of time, but then he declined precipitously. I was struck with the outpouring of affection for him after he died, so this feels like the right thing to do,” Adam added while discussing about the conversation they both had about the documentary before Leonard Nimoy died.

Zachary Quinto who featured in the last two Star Treks as the character Spock, will narrate the documentary. The project will celebrate the 50th anniversary of Star Trek and David Zappone will produce it.

Adam Nimoy says that they have enough source material to work on the documentary and the two books written by Leonard Nimoy will touch all baselines. “My father wrote two books — ‘I Am Not Spock’ and ‘I Am Spock’ — and we’ve got lots of recordings so there’s plenty for us to work with.”

Adam has previously directed episodes from Gilmore Girls, NYPD Blue, Ally McBeal and The Practice. He also wrote his biography in 2008 titled “My Incredibly Wonderful, Miserable Life”.
