Zachary Quinto Says STAR TREK 3 Aiming For 2014 Shoot, Confirmation J.J. Abrams Will Be Replaced As Director?
Actor Zachary Quinto (Spock) finally was able to breakout a bit as secondary lead rather than a supporting character in J.J. Abrams' new Star Trek franchise. So when he gives us production tidbits we should listen very closely. He gave a new quote (via FirstShowing) stating that Paramount was moving quickly on the next film with an early 2014 shoot. There had been rumblings that directors such as Joe Cornish (Ant-Man, Attack The Block) were being looked as possible replacements for J.J. Abrams. As the director is expected to shoot Star Wars: Episode 7 the same time that the third Trek film goes into production.
"Star Trek 3 should be filming, I suppose, next year. It’s going to be made a lot quicker than the last one. That’s the plan, although nothing is confirmed yet."
