Zachary Quinto (complete with his new buzz cut) is another Star Trek actor at Comic Con this year – promoting his new comic books. MTV caught up with the actor and he talked about how he is looking forward to the film and his faith in the team. He also talked about the possibility that there may be a new director for the Star Trek sequel. We have photos and video below.
Quinto expresses faith in team and open to new director
Talking to MTV, Zachary Quinto says that the first Star Trek movie was an "interesting and complete experience" and he "can’t wait" to get back for the sequel, which he (confirming previous reports) expects to be "this time next year".
Quinto also expressed his faith in the Star Trek team:
I have a lot of trust and gratitude and respect for JJ [Abrams] and for Damon Lindelof and for Bob Orci and Alex Kurtzman. Those guys know what they are doing.
And Quinto weighed in on the possibility that there would be a new director:
I would obviously want JJ directing every Star Trek movie that I am ever affiliated with, but if it is not the case, I am sure whoever that does will be someone that he has chosen and believes in for whatever reason. They know what’s up, I just show up when they tell me to show up and stand on a piece of tape.
