With Paramount having targeted the date of June 29, 2012 for the premiere of their Star Trek sequel, it went without question that director J.J. Abrams was planning to begin production shortly. But we now have that shoot window down to the month thanks to Captain Pike. When asked the question by Hollywood.com, co-star Bruce Greenwood revealed that production is slated to begin in January 2011.
It also seems that Bruce returning isn't a sure deal yet as he stated his hopes to have a role in the next space adventure. The rest of the Enterprise crew are already locked in. That includes Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, John Cho, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin and Zoe Saldana. Abrams will be directing from a script by returning writers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman.
Sound off below, Maniacs.
