Earlier this week IESB released part of their Eagle Eye interview with Star Trek co-writers Robert Orci and Alex Kurtzman (where they talked about Wrath of Khan) and today they have released the full interview where the pair give an update about the current status of Star Trek in post production and also talked about the ‘epic’ scale of the film.
Excerpts from IESB interview
IESB: So how is Star Trek coming along?
Bob: Star Trek, the effects are coming in and we’re very close to having the movie locked, maybe in a been a couple of weeks.
Alex: Yeah, maybe in about a month or so. It’s really, really exciting, just insanely exciting to be on the brink of launching that out into the world and…
Bob: I can’t believe we are going to stick it in a vault or I don’t know what’s gonna happen.
Alex: Well, there are so many effects that they will probably be finishing it right up to the last possible second.
IESB: Obviously you guys love Star Trek, you love Star Wars, on the special effects, something that has always been said about the Star Wars movies you expect to see the big space battles. Star Trek, even though you get space battles, it was never known for that, it was never about that, it was mainly about the crew. Do we see a merger of both these themes, are there any big epic battles in the new film or what are we going to be seeing?
Bob: I think the scale of this Star Trek, not only because of the technology but because of the trust that the studio put in all of us in terms of the investment, is going to be bigger than you’ve ever seen in a Star Trek movie. So, it’s going to be both. Star Trek is where you primarily think about the family, the humanity, the interactions and that is no different in the Star Trek that we are working on but it definitely is going to have an epic action quality to it that is unique..
