Star Trek director JJ Abrams was interviewed on G4’s Attack of the Show yesterday to promote the new Cloverfield DVD release. Abrams talked about viral marketing, Cloverfield sequels, Lost and a bit about the beginnings of post-production for Star Trek. See the video interview below.
A couple of key quotes
On Star Trek:
Well we’re cutting now, we’re editing the film. And obviously its Star Trek so there are a gazillion visual effects. We’re very lucky to have ILM doing the visual effects, and they’re spectacular. And I’m just starting to see some of them now and it is mind blowing.
On Cloverfield sequel
There are a couple of ideas that Drew Goddard, the writer, and Matt Reaves [director] have that are pretty fantastic. So we are playing around with ideas. Obviously unless it is something that really excites us and inspires us we wont do it.
