"Star Trek" Sequel Announced

Posted: March 31st, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Star Trek" Sequel AnnouncedSubmit Comment
As Paramount Pictures readies the May 8th release of its "Star Trek" franchise relaunch, the studio is moving forward with a sequel, and has hired Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman and Damon Lindelof to pen the screenplay.

JJ Abrams, who directed and produced the latest chapter, is onboard to produce the follow-up. No decision has been made yet on whether Abrams will return behind the camera.

Story is still in the early stage, but the trio are aiming to deliver their script by Christmas for what would likely be a summer 2011 release.

"There's obviously a lot of hubris involved in signing on to write a sequel of a movie that hasn't even come out yet," said Lindelof. "But we're so excited about the first one that we wanted to proceed."

As for potential storylines, Kurtzman stressed that the writing team will wait to take a cue from fan reaction about which direction to go.

"Obviously we discussed ideas, but we are waiting to see how audiences respond next month," he said. "With a franchise rebirth, the first movie has to be about origin. But with a second, you have the opportunity to explore incredibly exciting things. We'll be ambitious about what we'll do."
