Abrams on future of Star Trek beyond the next movie
Speaking to Aint It Cool about Super 8, JJ Abrams spoke about the future of Star Trek beyond the currently planned sequel
AICN: One last question: what’s the status of the next STAR TREK film, and how many more do you think are possible with this cast?
Abrams: Um, I have no idea. Hopefully one more, at least.
AICN: Is that all you’ve planned so far? Is that as far as you can see?
Abrams: We’re not writing… which I know a lot of people have done, [filming] two sequels in a row or planning a trilogy. We’ve of course talked about a lot of different things, but in terms of specific planning for a film, there’s only one movie on the horizon that we’re talking about.
