Zachary Quinto may be taking some time off Trek (perhaps to play Gershwin) but he appears to be looking forward to getting back into it. The new Spock talked briefly to Entertainment Weekly about the Trek sequel and how he is as anxious as we all are to find out what writers Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman and Damon Lindelof are up to.
Zach wants to be a Vulcan on the wall
The new issue of Entertainment Weekly has a very brief ‘Spock Talks Trek’ article, with some stuff about the new Star Trek Online game (with nothing new) and also a bit about Star Trek sequel. Here is what Quinto had to say.
How did you get involved with this?
It was a good way to show my continued support for the Star Trek universe, because I’m going to leave it for a while until we start the second movie. I played [Star Trek Online] for about a half hour. I’m not really good at that stuff. I had an Atari when I was a kid, when it was still the gaming console. Pitfall! is my favorite.
How’s the movie sequel coming?
[The writing team is] probably sequestered in a room somewhere. I’d love to be a fly on the wall to see what they’re coming up with. The next stage will be actually drafting the script. It’s a long process so I don’t expect to have anything to read until the end of the year.
Read the rest in the latest issue of EW, on newsstands now.
