Star Trek star is set to tell the story of devastation

Star Trek actor Zachary Quinto is set to produce a
romantic movie set in the aftermath of 2005’s devastating Hurricane Katrina in

The star’s production company is teaming up with Killer
Films to work on Imperial Palace, which will tell the story of a man who
manages a casino used as the headquarters for relief efforts and is caught up
in a love triangle with his ex-girlfriend and another man.

It is not Quinto’s first time producing a big screen
project – he previously worked behind the scenes on Margin Call, in which he
starred opposite Demi Moore, Kevin Spacey and Jeremy Irons, which was released
in the US in October (2011).

In a statement, Quinto says, “We’re thrilled to take the
momentum of Margin Call and our experience working with (director) Victor
(Quinaz) on his first film to move into a second feature with him. He’s a truly
original talent, and Imperial Palace is a perfect example of his unique,
commercial voice.”
