Zachary Quinto Clears Up ‘Star Trek 2′ Rumors

Star Trek fans will have to wait a little while longer for the sequel to begin filming. The newly shorn Zachary Quinto revealed at Comic-Con 2010 that production for Star Trek 2 most likely will not begin until about this time next year. This squashed rumors that have been floating around that production was supposed to begin in January of 2011.

Quinto talked a bit about Star Trek, “I have a lot of trust and gratitude and respect for J.J. [Abrams] and Damon Lindelof and for Bob Orci and Alex Kurtzman. They know what they’re doing,” Quinto said. “I would obviously love to see J.J. directing every Star Trek movie that I’m ever a part of, but if it’s not the case, I’m sure whoever does will be someone he’s chosen for whatever reason. They know what’s up. I just show up where they tell me to show up and stand on a piece of tape.”
