Abrams waiting for Trek script – expects sequel to expand on characters
MTV News caught up with Star Trek sequel producer (and possible director) JJ Abrams at Vanity Fair’s post-Oscar bash on Sunday. Regarding his new film Super-8 (due in theaters June 8th), Abrams said he expect a trailer "pretty soon" but in characteristic fashion wouldn’t give any details. And regarding that Star Trek sequel script currently being wrapped up by Damon Lindelof and Roberto Orci, Abrams said he "I can’t wait to check it out very shortly". He also provided this tiny insight into what he thinks the film will expand on saying:
Abrams: The first one [Star Trek 2009] was about the characters meeting and the sequel’s going to have to be more about what they do now that they’re a family. It’ll be fun.
March continues to look like the big moment for the Star Trek sequel. Earlier in the year Abrams stated that he expected to be announcing his intentions on directing the sequel this month, and a few weeks ago the writers indicated they expected to hand in the draft this month as well.
