A few interesting tidbits emerge from an Access Hollywood piece on the highly kissable Zoe Saldana:
“We still haven’t gotten a script yet,” she said …
Simon Pegg, who plays Starfleet engineer Montgomery Scott, tweeted in February that "word on the bridge is the new script is AMAZEBALLS," but he still doesn't have that screenplay in hand. Saldana doesn’t even know if Uhura and Spock are still an item.
... Access has confirmed with a source will begin shooting in mid-January …
Does this mean we’ll see it in 2012 or 2013? Remember the 2009 “Star Trek” was originally set for a 2008 release. Its sequel was originally set to be released next summer. In any event, we’ll have to keep our eyes peeled for casting.
… and won’t be called “Star Trek 2.”
Which I applaud very hard and loudly, since we already have a movie we like to call “Star Trek II.” (I’m already worn out explaining to people which movie I mean when I say “Star Trek,” which movie I mean when I say “Rambo,” and what I mean when I say the third “Star Wars.”)
Star Trek: Spock’s Pancreas
Star Trek: Horta Vs. Tholian
Star Trek: Mudd’s Pants
J.J. Abrams again directs from a screenplay by Bob Orci, Alex Kurtzman and Damon Lindelof.
