The script for Star Trek 2 is still not really a script

05.23.2011

Set phasers on stagnant. See that crew up there? They are patiently waiting for someone to stoke the dilithium crystals and put the good ship Enterprise in motion for a second space journey.

But thus far, the warp core is still in flux on a sequel to STAR TREK. Some two years after the JJ Abrams relaunch zoomed into theaters to cosmic success, the anticipated follow-up is still coming together.

TREK co-writer/producer Roberto Orci gave an update on the sequel to TrekMovie.com, admitting that they still haven't moved past the outline stage. But at least it's a nice fat outline: "Just been waiting for JJ to be free to really decide if he likes the story and hear his suggestions before we finish the script. Once he says go, we’ll have it in no time. Meanwhile, our outline is detailed enough (70+ pages!) to do some prep :)"

Abrams has been busy with his sci-fi thriller/Spielberg homage SUPER 8, but hasn't even committed to directing STAR TREK 2 yet. And the cast members (most of whom have enjoyed a career boost since their time on the bridge) have often expressed an expectation of when they might begin production on the sequel, but nothing has been solidified without someone at the helm.

While it's nice that the studio isn't rushing the sequel, we'd all probably like to see it before actual intergalactic travel is a reality...

Getting a G.I Joe 2 vibe here.

Oh dear, are they going to push this one back as well?

I'm getting kinda edgy...

because I really wanna see the sequel sooner than later. And, because I think they can improve upon the last one. It was a great intro or re-intro depending upon how you put it. Again, though I really like the chemistry they displayed and look forward to seeing how that growth continues...

As long as they don't do a Superman and decide to reboot the reboot, becuase the first reboot sure did the job and no further reboots are needed... unless the computer with the script on it crashes, in which case it will need to be rebooted.

Good news they have a solid outline but Abrams must be on board 100percent and It seems he is and isn't willing to rush it and put out garbage just to make a quick buck. Thanks and God bless him for that he is only getting better rather than letting success build a false sense that no matter what he does it will be awesome

They can take as long on they want on this if everyone, including JJ, is coming back. I'm tired of rushed, poorly planned sequels for movies that were genuinely entertaining.

The first one was brilliant, it really re-launched the franchise in the best possible way! I can't wait for the sequel, but I support the fact that they are taking their sweet time to make it right! ..and pleeease have Abrams commit to this already!!! :D

The first one didn't have a script. As Rogue 428 says it was just a fanboy mish-mash. Simon Pegg, an alien monkey and an engine room filmed in a brewery? Pass.

Take your time. Rush a sequel to a great first film and you get Iron Man 2. Nobody wants that.

A douchenozzle (like yourself) is someone that can't take a joke. Maybe you should try moving out of your parent's basement and seeing what an actual woman (other than your mom) looks like.

That's funny because last time I checked, my wife didn't look anything like my mom. Don't make assumptions you dumbass fuck-rag!

First one wasn't really a script either, just a collection of catch-phrases and caricatures of the characters, tied up in a thinly veiled adaptation of Star Wars. Hopefully, the second one is better.

Glad to see they aren't rushing this movie into production before the script is completed, that is never a good sign for a seqeul. Anyway, with 2012 having a lot of summer competition (Dark Knight Rises, Avengers, Spiderman Reboot, Superman Reboot), it might be smarter for this movie to be pushed to a 2013 release.

As long as it's done as well as the first, I'll wait as long as I have to.

Star Trek was pretty much the biggest surprise of the past decade for me, so as long as there's more and it's still got Abrams I'm on board for as long as it takes.
