Quinto: Star Trek Sequel Is ‘Bigger and Bolder’ + Actors Collaborated With Writers
Star Trek’s new Mr. Spock Zachary Quinto gave some comments to NBC LA’s Popcorn Biz. First up Quinto talked about what it is like getting everyone back together for production:
Getting back together with everybody was amazing. It was a little bit awkward because we’ve been away for four years, so for all of us to kind of find our footing again, just in relationship to shooting the movie [was a challenge]. But there’s such a great connection between all of us that we were able to find our way pretty quickly.
While he of course can’t divulge details, the actor did talk about the story in general:
Well, it’s bigger and bolder. And I think in some ways more dynamic. And it’s so exciting to be back. And the first time there was a writer’s strike when we were shooting the movie so nothing was able to be changed – the script was locked. And this time Bob [Orci] and Alex [Kurtzman] and Damon [Lindeloff] and J.J.[Abrams] are really getting in and working on the story and sort of allowing it to expand and evolve – and bringing us into the process. So there’s a real collaboration that wasn’t even legally permitted the first time that I feel really grateful for. We’re having a really great time.
