Star Trek director 'excited' by sequel

June 14th, 2011

J.J. Abrams is "really excited to get back into" the 'Star Trek' sequel.

The director's latest film 'Super 8' has just been released, and he is now back to focussing on the long awaited next 'Star Trek' project, but warned he will not be rushed because he "cares" too much about it.

He said: "I certainly think that we want to make sure that it's done right. The guys we're working with are obviously brilliant, so I'm really excited to get back into 'Star Trek'.

"I care much more than it be good than it be ready. We're obviously doing everything we can to make sure that schedules don't get screwed up, but I don't think anyone wants a movie on time that's not worth your time."

The filmmaker also said he has no plans to shoot the film in 3-D, but said that depending on the wishes of studio bosses, this could be a possibility.

He jokingly added to "I'm not yet considering 3-D, but I haven't gotten that threatening phone call from people in suits saying, 'If you know what's good for you . . .'"

The script for 'Star Trek 2' - written by Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman and Damon Lindelof - was originally planned to be ready for summer 2012, but the film has since been put back to December of the same year.
