The long-awaited Star Trek reboot sequel will wait a while longer – Co-writer/producers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman reported at SDCC that they hope to start shooting in January 2012 – while Paramount still has it penciled in for a June 29th, 2012 release. Fellow co-writer/producer Damon Lindelof also said, “Right now my days and nights are consumed by Star Trek 2. We were supposed to dive in on that as soon as I finished Lost, but JJ [Abrams] was so busy on Super 8, Alex [Kurtzman] and Bob [Orci] had their own sort of empire to manage. Now finally the four creative minds that made the first movie what it was are all back in a room together and that was the only way we wanted to do it.”
I don’t know…should we start a pool on what the first day of principal photography will actually be?
