William ShatnerHaving sung with Taiwanese X Factor losers, learnt to speak fluent Esperanto, auctioned his kidney stone for charity and hosted his own paintball tournament, the legend that is William Shatner is yet again going where a more modest actor would never dare to go. He is heading behind the camera to direct a documentary about his favourite subject... himself. Brilliant.

Shatner is also set to be executive producer of the documentary entitled 'The Captains' which will focus on his early acting career and, in particular, his time starring as Captain Kirk in the original Star Trek TV series. Production is expected to begin next month for broadcast on Canada's Movie Central channel in winter 2011.
