Remember that small little movie that J.J. Abrams directed back in 2009? Well, it has been confirmed that Abrams will return to the director’s chair for the follow up to STAR TREK! While this seemed like a no brainer, nothing had officially been released until yesterday.
The sequel is still untitled, but Star Trek fans will be happy to know that the script should be done by the end of September, and that shooting for Star Trek 2 will begin this winter. There were a few issues that caused the sequel to be
delayed: Alex Kurtzman (writer of the first Star Trek reboot) has been directing Welcome to People, for DreamWorks Pictures; but now that this is finished, Kurtzman can get back to penning Star Trek!
Chris Pine (Kirk) and Zachary Quinto (Spock) are both expected to return in the sequel.
