Abrams is directing based on the script by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Damon Lindelof. The sequel will be produced by Abrams, Kurtzman, Orci, Lindelof, Bryan Burk, and David Ellison under Bad Robot and Skydance Productions. Filming is slated to start in early 2012 with Paramount planning to release the pic on May 17, 2013.
Abrams is keeping everything quiet about the story, but has just one more major role left to cast. It is rumored to be another villain, “someone who's older and in more of a supporting character to del Toro.”
I loved the first Star Trek and think that Alice Eve is a good addition to the cast. I wonder who else will be returning to star. What are your thoughts on this news?
