Star Trek’s new Sulu, John Cho, was on G4’s Attack of the Show yesterday. He talked mostly about FlashForward and the (possibly 3-D) third Harold and Kumar movie, but he did give a brief update on the Star Trek sequel. Check out the video below. Plus Star Trek sequel co-writer Damon Lindelof gives an update on his schedule.
Cho on AOTS
Mostly Cho talks FlashForward, Harold and Kumar and a bit about how big of a star Zoe Saldana has become, but at the end he is asked about Trek. Regarding the Star Trek sequel, Cho confirmed again that shooting will begin next year, but with regards to the scrip he said:
I don’t think they’ve written anything yet, some of our writers are on other projects right now, so I don’t think any decisions have been made.

Sulu gets Sexier? – Cho talks more about Trek
And in a AOTS behind the scenes interview, Cho talks more about Star Trek, first joking that "Sulu gets sexier" but then notes that he "doesn’t want to poison the well" with his own input saying he has "full confidence" in the writers, noting that he signed on to the first Star Trek without reading the script. He also talks more about about the next Harold and Kumar script and FlashForward.
Lindelof almost done with Lost – next up, Trek sequel
John Cho noted that the writers have been busy on other projects. One of those projects is Lost. Damon Lindelof is the co-show runner for the ABC show, which is now in its last season. Lindelof will be working with Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman on the Star Trek script, but he can’t really do that until his work on Lost is complete. And it seems that time may be soon. Just this afternoon Lindelof tweeted that he was headed to Hawaii (where Lost is filmed) for the final time:
DamonLindelof: In LAX (no space) ready to board what will be my final flight to the island. It is becoming very, very real now.
TrekMovie will have more exclusive content on the Star Trek sequel this weekend, so check back for that update.
