J.J. Abrams Talks Star Trek Into Darkness and Star Trek 3

by SuperHeroHype

January 12, 2013

In just a few short months, we'll get to trek into darkness with the crew of the Enterprise for J.J. Abrams' follow-up Star Trek Into Darkness. He spoke with CraveOnline about the film and as usual his lips stayed sealed about specifics - he wouldn't even talk about the themes of the film.

"There’s nothing worse for me than reading what the theme of a book is or a movie and then reading it and being like: that’s the theme. The theme is you feel it...I do think that by default this a deeper movie. It’s certainly a bigger movie because the first one was kind of the origin story which is great because it’s so easy. You just introduce people and yet now they know each other so it has to go deeper."

2009's Star Trek boasted a very strong ensemble cast and it's grown even larger for the new film, and it wasn't easier finding everyone's place the second time around.

"Honestly, it’s never easier the next time, ever, for anything. You always think, “Oh, I’ve done that, it’ll be easier the next time.” No, it’s harder the next time. But it’s important that every character needs to be in the story, otherwise they shouldn’t be. But I wouldn’t say it was easier."

The identity of Benedict Cumberbatch's character has been revealed as John Harrison, but many still believe he's a new version of Khan, and Abrams is ready for people to just see the movie.

"I just can’t wait for people to see the movie. Benedict is unbelievable. It’s a tall order, coming into that movie, because the crew of the Enterprise, that cast is so damn good and they’re wonderful to work with and they’re all good hearts. So, to come into that group, as he did, as Alice Eve did and as Peter Weller did, and be one of the family was something that I was doubtful could happen. And he completely did it. I not only love him in the movie, but I love him, as a human being. He’s an amazing guy. I can’t wait for people to see the movie and experience what he’s done."

One reason some still believe Cumberbatch to be playing Khan is a connection in the new trailer that is very similar to a key scene in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, but Abrams won't say a word about it.

"Well, I would say that you’ve got to see the movie to see. I don’t want to give away what that is, but we’ve all seen Wrath of Khan. With one or two exceptions, we’re not idiots. We are aware of the movie. I love Wrath of Khan."

With the second movie almost out, it's not too early to talk about a potential third film, but when Abrams was asked if he had thought about it at all he said no. They have stories in mind, though.

"No, sir, not yet. I’m sure that the studio would love that to be a possibility but it’s up to the audience to decide if there needs to be one...There are things we’ve talked about but there’s no script or anything, it’s just ideas."

Star Trek Into Darkness stars John Cho, Bruce Greenwood, Simon Pegg, Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin, Benedict Cumberbatch, Alice Eve and Peter Weller. It will be released in 3D, 2D and IMAX 3D theaters on May 17.

J.J. Abrams Will Still Produce a Third Star Trek Film

Source: ComingSoon

January 25, 2013

After yesterday's surprise announcement that J.J. Abrams will be franchise-hopping from Star Trek to Star Wars, fans have been curious about what that means for the future of the U.S.S. Enterprise and her crew. Today, Paramount Pictures tells The LA Times that Abrams remains committed to Trek and will, at the very least, serve as producer on Star Trek III (or Star Trek XIII, depending on your point of view). What's more, he's also going to remain attached to at least one more film in the Mission: Impossible franchise.

Abrams' next, Star Trek Into Darkness, hits theaters on May 17 and reunites Chris Pine, John Cho, Bruce Greenwood, Simon Pegg, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban and Anton Yelchin with a cast of newcomers that includes Benedict Cumberbatch, Alice Eve and Peter Weller.

Star Wars: Episode VII, meanwhile, is being written by Michael Arndt and is scheduled to hit theaters sometime in 2015.

I have a bad feeling that this will mean Star Trek 3 will suck. The third movie in a trilogy is NEVER all that great (Return of the King excepted) but whenever the original director of the first two drops out, it's a disaster (think X-Men: The Last Stand).

Zachary Quinto Gives Update on the Next Star Trek Movie

by SuperHeroHype

July 13, 2013

Now that Star Trek Into Darkness has earned $444 million worldwide, Paramount Pictures is looking ahead at the next film and it sounds like they may start shooting earlier than was expected.

Lucien from BuzzHub tells us: " I attended a public interview with Zachary Quinto at the Galway Film Festival in Ireland on Friday, and during it, he revealed that Paramount have told the Star Trek cast that they're planning to shoot ST3 in 2014, and that J.J. still wants to direct! He also told the audience he does not want to be in Episode VII, but he would like to cameo in The Big Bang Theory!"

To quote exactly what Quinto said about "Star Trek": "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."

It would seem impossible for J.J. Abrams to direct the film next year considering his Star Wars: Episode VII duties, but it's interesting to hear Quinto say that. Who do you think should direct the next film?

Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci to Return for Next Star Trek Film

by SuperHeroHype

August 05, 2013

Although online rumors had recently suggested that a new team of writers might be brought aboard Paramount Pictures' Star Trek franchise, The Hollywood Reporter now brings word that Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci will return to the bridge of the Enterprise for a third big screen adventure. Damon Lindelof, who worked with the pair on this summer's Star Trek Into Darkness will not be back.

The most recent film featured the returning cast of Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, John Cho, Bruce Greenwood, Simon Pegg and Anton Yelchin with new roles for Benedict Cumberbatch, Alice Eve and Peter Weller. Although the film grossed more than $450 million at the worldwide box office, reviews from certain die-hard Trekkies were less than kind.

Orci and Kurtzman's other big screen credits include Transformers, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and Cowboys and Aliens. Their new series, "Sleepy Hollow," offers a time-travel twist on the Washington Irving short story and will premiere September 16 on FOX.

Although no official release date has, as of yet, been announced, it's likely that the next film, the 13th in the long-running franchise, will take advantage of the property's 50th anniversary in 2016.

Joe Cornish to Direct Star Trek 3?

by SuperHeroHype

November 02, 2013

Deadline is reporting that Paramount is considering Attack the Block director Joe Cornish to take the helm of the upcoming Star Trek 3. Paramount is in need of a director since J.J. Abrams has gone off to a galaxy far, far away, though he will reportedly still produce the film.

Though Attack the Block is the only directing credit to Cornish's name, he has previously penned a few screenplays including The Adventures of Tintin and Marvel's upcoming Ant-Man.

Writers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci will return to write the third film in the series which star Zachary Quinto says is scheduled to begin filming in 2014.

Although no official release date has, as of yet, been announced, it's likely that the next film, the 13th in the long-running franchise, will take advantage of the property's 50th anniversary in 2016.

Writers Assemble for Thirteenth Star Trek Feature

by SuperHeroHype

December 06, 2013

With the series' 50th anniversary hitting in 2016, work is already underway to bring a thirteenth (or third, depending on your interpretation of temporal mechanics) big screen Star Trek adventure to theaters. Although there's no guarantee yet that the project will hit for the golden anniversary celebration, the odds of that are looking a little better today as The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Patrick McKay and J.D. Payne will be joining the returning Roberto Orci. Orci's writing partner, Alex Kurtzman, the outlet says, will be sitting this one out.

Although the film does not yet have a director locked, recent reports have hinted that Attack the Block helmer Joe Cornish is high on the list of potential candidates.

Although McKay and Payne do not, as of yet, have a produced credit to their name, they have already worked with J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot Productions on Boilerplate: History's Mechanical Marvel, a planned adaptation of the book by Paul Guinan and Anina Bennett.

Roberto Orci Enters Negotiations to Direct Star Trek 3

SuperHeroHype

May 09, 2014

It was revealed a few weeks ago that writer/producer Roberto Orci was lobbying for the director's chair for the upcoming Star Trek 3. Now, Deadline reports that he has entered negotiations with Skydance Productions and Paramount to helm the film and is the clear frontrunner for the position.

Having previously written both "Star Trek" films and the tie-in video game, Orci is joined by screenwriters Patrick McKay and J.D. Payne, who will help him pen the third adventure of the Enterprise crew.

There's no announced time frame for the next Star Trek film as of yet, but the franchise will be celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2016. If the plan is to have a film in theaters to tie into the occasion, expect official announcements on the film in the very near future.

Roberto Orci Sets Star Trek 3′s Course Heading

SuperHeroHype

Jun 26, 2014

The next Star Trek film (either the third or thirteenth, depending on your point of view) has set a course for the final frontier. Director Roberto Orci, in speaking to Geoff Boucher on the Humans From Earth podcast (via Badass Digest) revealed today that, unlike J.J. Abrams' Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness, the new film will take place in deep space.

"[I]n this movie they are closer than they are to the original series characters that you have ever seen," says Orci. "They have set off on their five-year mission. So their adventure is going to be in deep space."

Orci is joined on the project by screenwriters Patrick McKay and J.D. Payne, who are helping him pen the next adventure of the Enterprise crew.

The expectation is that the new film will land in theaters in 2016, just in time for the franchise's 50th anniversary. At the moment, however, no release date has been set.

Justin Lin to Direct Star Trek 3!

SuperHeroHype

Dec 22, 2014

Paramount has, according to Deadline, set four-time The Fast and the Furious franchise helmer Justin Lin to direct the upcoming Star Trek 3 (or 13 depending on your point of view). The new arrives nearly three weeks after word first broke that Roberto Orci would not be taking the director’s chair.

Lin’s credits also include his indie debut Better Luck Tomorrow (which he retconned into a The Fast and the Furious prequel of sorts), the Naval drama Annapolis and several key episodes of Dan Harmon’s “Community”. He’ll also be directing the first two episode of “True Detective” season two.

Although a release date has not been specified, it is widely believed that the plan is for the film to hit theaters in 2016, as the year marks the 50th anniversary of the “Star Trek” franchise.

Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Anton Yelchin, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, Zoe Saldana and John Cho are all expected to reprise their roles as the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise. Plot details have not yet been revealed, although Orci stated earlier this year that his plan was to set the action in deep space, unlike the relatively Earth-centric J.J. Abrams films. There is no word currently on whether the film will move forward with the same screenplay scripted by Orci, Patrick McKay and J.D. Payne or seek a new draft.

Star Trek 3 to Boldly Go to Theaters July 8, 2016

SuperHeroHype

Dec 23, 2014

Following word yesterday that four-time The Fast and the Furious franchise helmer Justin Lin is set to direct the upcoming Star Trek 3 (or 13 depending on your point of view), Paramount Pictures has officially announced a release date of July 8, 2016. 2016, as Trekkies are well aware, marks the 50th anniversary of Gene Roddenberry’s enduring sci-fi franchise.

Although Star Trek 3 is the first film to claim the July 8, 2016 release date, the film will follow both the Steven Spielberg directed Roald Dahl adaptation The BFG (starring Mark Rylance and Ruby Barnhill) and David Yates’ take on Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Tarzan (starring Samuel L. Jackson, Djimon Hounsou, Christoph Waltz, Alexander Skarsgård and Margot Robbie), which both hit the big screen July 1, 2016.

Idris Elba in Talks to Play the Star Trek 3 Villain

SuperHeroHype

Mar 25, 2015

Variety reports that “Luther” and Thor star Idris Elba is in early talks for the lead villain role in the upcoming Star Trek 3, though details on who the character might be are being kept under wraps.

The film features the return of Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Anton Yelchin, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg and Zoe Saldana as the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise. J.J. Abrams, who directed the last two films, is producing the third film in the rebooted franchise. Justin Lin is set to direct from a script by Doug Jung and Simon Pegg.

Paramount Pictures has Star Trek 3 scheduled for a July 8, 2016 release, which coincides with the 50th Anniversary of the “Star Trek” franchise.

Elba can next be seen in Avengers: Age of Ultron, which he personally confirmed he has a part in, as well as Cary Fukunaga’s Beasts of No Nation on Netflix later this year and as the voice of Shere Khan in Jon Favreau’s The Jungle Book on April 15, 2016.
