One of the most popular TV stars Zachary Quinto, who has made a successful transmition onto the big screen with his charismatic and stunning portrayal of Spock in last year's blockbuster "Star Trek" is continuing his movie career. According to latest news he has signed on to star in DreamWorks Pictures' upcoming biopic about the American composer and pianist George Gershwin, which might be directed by Steven Spielberg himself.
DreamWorks will provide accent and dialogue coaches for Quinto, and shooting could begin as soon as April.
