So…did U guys lock in Benicio yet, or what???
While we haven't gotten confirmation yet on whether or not Benicio Del Toro will appear in Star Trek 2, we've got lots of new info to report on the upcoming movie!
We've just learned that J.J. Abrams' Star Trek sequel is set to begin shooting by January 15, 2012.
As far as the script is concerned, the screenwriters are in the process of revising a 3rd draft, so that it will meet Paramount's budgetary guidelines.
We're also hearing that Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) has begun work on some digital effects shots for the movie! Awesome!
As for locations, most of Star Trek 2 will be shot on the Paramount lot…but J.J. is currently looking for place to shoot a "jungle planet," as well as a "famous Star Trek location."
This is all very exciting! We definitely think this movie COULD be one of those sequels that surpasses the original…kind of like
Urban Legends: Final Cut The Godfather: Part II!
What do U think? Pumped for more Star Trek in UR lives???
