Buzzhub.com got a great exclusive about Star Trek 3 over the weekend. Spock himself, Zachary Quinto, at the 2013 Galway Film Fleadh had this to say:
“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”.
They also reported that Quinto said Abrams was going to to direct. Take it or leave it. That is the latest update on Star Trek 3. Does Quinto know something we don’t. Is Abrams a wunderkind and capable of directing both movies? Victor Young did direct the Gone With the Wind and The Wizard of Oz in the same year.
