Trek 11 sequel talk
J.J. Abrams' upcoming STAR TREK, his prequel reinvention showing a young Captain Kirk for the first time going boldly where no man has gone before, is still about a year away but writers' Alex Kurtzman and Robert Orci recently revealed to TrekMovie.com that they've already been contacted about a sequel. Says Orci: "Alright, since I saw the queen I can give you a spoiler about the Studios state of mind (not about the movie itself). The spoiler is that they already want to lock us down to write the sequel. Take that as you will." Though it may seem as if the studio is putting a lot faith into this film rebooting the franchise in a lucrative way, Orci further mentions that this is standard operating procedure for films of this magnitude. In the film, Chris Pine takes up the mantle of Captain Kirk along with Zachary Quinto as Spock, Zoe Saldana as Uhura, Karl Urban as Bones, John Cho as Sulu, Simon Pegg as Scotty, Anton Yelchin as Chekov, Bruce Greenwood as Pike and Eric Bana as the villainous Nero in an adventure centering on the Academy days of James T. Kirk.
