LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter)Consumers beamed up “Star Trek” in droves during its first week in stores, enough to make the summer box-office hit the top home-video seller and renter.

After being dumped in theaters this past September, the Chris Pine (Star Trek) thriller Carriers is coming to rental DVD on December 8, 2009 from Paramount Home Entertainment. A full DVD release is yet to be announced, but is expected in 4 to 6 weeks after the release. Determined to escape a deadly virus, four teens set out in search of an uncontaminated refuge. As they travel across the decimated landscape of America, they encounter a truth far more horrifying than the virus they are trying to survive.

Co-starring Piper Perabo (Coyote Ugly), Emily VanCamp (“Brothers & Sisters”), and Emmy®-nominee Chris Meloni (“Law and Order: SVU”) CARRIERS is a terrifying journey into a world where laws and rules no longer apply, and no one can be trusted – not even your friends. The film was written and directed by Alex & David Pastor.

The CARRIERS DVD is presented in widescreen enhanced for 16:9 televisions with Dolby Digital English 5.1 Surround, Spanish 5.1 Surround and English, French and Spanish subtitles. The DVD will be available for sale four to six weeks after its rental street date.

It’s been over a year since we heard that Ben Affleck and his Gone Baby Gone writing/producing partner, Sean Bailey, nabbed the rights to bring the novel The Blade Itself to the big screen. Contrary to popular belief, just because news about the film isn’t flooding the Internet, doesn’t mean development has come to a halt. In fact, we’ve learned that progress has been made on the hush hush.

According to Pajiba, Star Trek’s Chris Pine signed on to star in the film in May, but as of six weeks ago, his status changed from starring to attached. Pine is scheduled to meet with the film’s top directorial candidate before sealing the deal. As for the director, Pajiba says the individual set to rendezvous with Pine is not Affleck.

If Pine does sign on to star, the role will be a great departure from Star Trek’s James T. Kirk. The Blade Itself is based on the Marcus Sakey novel about a pair of young friends, Danny and Evan, who commit a slew of petty crimes together until something goes horribly wrong. Years later, we meet the boys again who have grown to lead completely different lives. Danny has a family and a successful career but Evan is an ex-con with a vengeance. Danny is forced to do whatever it takes to protect the ones he loves from his dark past.

Don’t think Pine can hack it in a gritty crime film? Check out Bottle Shock. It’s as far from a crime film as you can get, but it does show the guy is versatile. He’ll be putting that resourcefulness to good use in the coming years. Since the release of Star Trek, Chris has signed on to a handful of projects. There’s The Art of Taking Money, Unstoppable and, most recently, buzz about Pine becoming the new Jack Ryan. Maybe if all goes well with The Blade Itself, Affleck will give him some tips on portraying iconic CIA agent.
