Patrick Stewart Finds A Match

By StarTrek.com Staff - January 16, 2013

Sounds as if Patrick Stewart has his dance card full for a good while. The actor recently wrapped Hunting Elephants and also the animated feature Dorothy of Oz, and it’s been announced that Star Trek: The Next Generation’s iconic Captain Picard will reprise his role as Professor Charles Xavier in Bryan Singer’s next chapter in the X-Men saga, X-Men: Days of Future Past. However, that production is still a ways off, with the script still to be finished and the casting to be finalized.

Meanwhile, according to Deadline.com, Stewart is now shooting Match, with Stephen Belber writing and producing the film based on his play of the same name. Currently shooting in New York City, the story, per Deadline, casts Stewart as “a reclusive, eccentric Juilliard dance instructor and former choreographer, who is visited by a  Seattle couple, (Carla Gugino and Matthew Lillard) under the pretense of interviewing the dancer for her thesis on the New York dance movement in the 1960s. However, as the couple’s true intentions are revealed, he finds himself unable to dance around the impact of decisions he made long ago.”
