'Star Trek 3' Producer Puts the Brakes on J.J. Abrams Return News

Paramount Paramount

We knew something seemed a little fishy when Zachary Quinto boldly announced (read: casually said at some film fest, setting us all into an unintended tizzy) that he expected "Star Trek 3" to begin filming next year with "Star Trek" and "Star Trek Into Darkness" director J.J. Abrams returning to his captaining station behind the lens.

'Cause everyone with an ounce of nerd cred knows that Abrams' "Star Wars: Episode VII" is going into production in January, and that's totally not some kinda Joss Whedon-esque pocket project he can bang out on the side in two weeks. That's a year's commitment, if not more.

So, we're not surprised that producer Bob Orci, when asked about the "news," calmly laid the smack down on that chatter, essentially telling Zap2it that the words were incredibly premature and unfounded. Get More »

Now that Matt Smith's nearing the end of his "Doctor Who" travels, he's ready to launch into another dimension: somewhere far, far away with J.J. Abrams.

Yep, while paying a visit to Comic-Con to say what's up to all the Whovians who made way to San Diego this year, Smith also chatted about his interest in playing a piece in one of those space movie games* Abrams is juggling right about now ... and, hey, the doc knows beggars can't be choosers, so he'd be delighted to be in either "Star Trek 3" movie or "Star Wars: Episode VII."

Zachary Quinto: 'Star Trek 3' Filming to Start Next Year...With J.J. Abrams?!

Paramount Paramount

Live long and prosper — that's certainly what the folks at Paramount Pictures are hoping their "Star Trek" film franchise'll be able to do at the box office.  And it looks like the studio might just be aiming to set the threepeat into motion sooner than later as Zachary Quinto has spilled the beans that they might be eyeing a 2014 start for "Star Trek 3"...with J.J. Abrams directing.

According to BuzzHub, while Quinto was present for a Q&A interview session on Friday, July 12 at the 2013 Galway Film Fleadh in Galway City, Ireland, he let it slip that all that "Star Trek Into Darkness" cash had the studio wanting light speed turnaround on a third installment to the spacey franchise.

"'Star Trek 3' should be filming, I suppose, next year," he said in response to a question about the J.J. Abrams-led reboot series. "It's going to be made a lot quicker than the last one. That's the plan, although nothing is confirmed yet."

Quinto also reportedly mentioned that he believes Abrams himself intends to direct "Star Trek 3," which, for those keeping count of all of Abrams' commitments — he's got "Star Wars: Episode VII" heading for production in London early next year as well — might be a tad baffling.

Interestingly enough, Quinto also declared that he'll not be re-teaming with Abrams on that other intergalactic reboot, though he did not say why.

'Star Trek Into Darkness:' 8 Things You May Have Missed the First Time Around

Star Trek Into Darkness Paramount


It's become a bit of a tradition in Hollywood for the creators of pop culture-friendly franchises to hide a few Easter eggs in the film for hardcore fans to find and get giggly over. "Iron Man 3" did it just this month while Marvel's other giant blockbuster, "The Avengers," perfected the art last year.

But while those movies were at least sometimes subtle about their references and in-jokes, "Star Trek Into Darkness" has taken a somewhat different approach: smacking you right in the face with them at every single opportunity. Get More »

William Shatner Helps J.J. Abrams Plot Out 'Star Wars'

The biggest problem with the "Star Wars" prequels (besides, you know, Jar-Jar) was in the intervening 15 years between episodes fans had basically made those movies in their heads, and nothing could live up to the majesty of whatever they had concocted.

Luckily, J.J. Abrams has taken that into consideration, and seems open to taking suggestions directly from fanboys as he crafts "Star Wars Episode VII," as in last night's interview with Jimmy Kimmel where he took pointers from a guy with a light saber and a fat dude in Slave Leia drag (natch). And, surprise, O.G. "Star Trek" stars Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian) and William Shatner popped up to offer their own expert opinions. Get More »
