Quinto Prepping For Star Trek – Hasn’t Seen Script

Quinto’s participation is required next in a “Star Trek” sequel, which starts filming early in 2012 and will take up the first half of the year. “I’m starting to shift into that mode of preparation,” he says “I have physical training and other ways of prepping for it. None of us have seen the script. We’re all very curious to see where he’s taking us this time. We’re going on rumors, little hints here and there, stories we’ve been told.”

Quinto also talked about how being in Star Trek helped with his new production company:
"Starting my production company is something that ‘Star Trek’ allowed me to do. I could utilize that exposure and parlay it into opportunities that would allow me to tell my own kind of stories instead of stories other people see me in. It’s all tied into Star Trek. It put me in a position to have access that I wouldn’t have had otherwise. I wanted to use that access to tell my own sorts of stories, with me involved in telling them."
The first film from Quinto’s new production company is Margin Call, which tells a story framed around the recent financial crisis. Quinto co-produced the film and is also part of the ensemble cast. Margin Call opens October 21. Here is a trailer.
