In another brief Comic Con interview, Zoe Saldana talked to MTV about the next Star Trek movie. She was non-committal on the subject of Khan, but noted that she is already being asked about her availability next year.
The latest “Star Trek: Something Something” news comes from a brief intreview by MTV at San Diego Comic Con (where Saldana was promoting the upcoming Avatar movie). The video is below, where she says she has been asked (by the producers) "What are you doing?" in March, June and September. Saldana says she is free “whenever” they “come callin'”.
As we have reported before, Bob Orci and Alex Kurtzman have said that they and Damon Lindelof are expected to have the script finished by Christmas. Although the pre-production for the fist new Star Trek movie lasted around nine months, the second one should go much faster as there will be much less casting and much of the production design, construction, costumes, etc is already completed. According to TrekMovie sources, Paramount is hoping to have the next Star Trek film out May 2011. But no official announcements have been made, and as we saw with the first film, things can always get changed in Hollywood.
