William Shatner's name was almost synonymous with romance in the 1960's during Star Trek's debut. Well, space romance. Captain James T. Kirk was a well-known ladies man, effortlessly wooing women from every corner of the galaxy. After three seasons and six movies, you'd think William Shatner had had enough. Think again, because William Shatner is slated to star in an upcoming rom-com called Senior Moment

Variety reports that the film will star William Shatner and begin production in Palm Springs, California, beginning in the late spring. Senior Moment follows a retired Navy pilot (Shatner), who after a crackdown to get senior drivers off the road has his  license revoked due to speeding. Enter the romantic interest: a woman who just happens to be campaigning to get seniors off the road. Romantic hilarity ensues!

Giorgio Serafini is directing this project, writen by Kurt Brungardt and Christopher Momenee. On working with this crew, Shatner said:

I'm thrilled to be working with this group of talented people. I'm really looking forward to making a wonderfully funny movie.

Little more is known about this upcoming rom-com. Maybe it will boldy go where no romantic comedy has gone before. Can't wait until the movie comes out? You can watch Shatner at his romantic best every weeknight and Sunday night at 8PM | 7C in Star Trek: The Original Series
