Quinto Gives Quick Update On Next Star Trek
This morning Zachary Quinto was on NBC’s The Today Show promoting his stars filmmaking documentary series The Chair. At the end of the interview was asked if he had any news about the next Star Trek. The actor said:
I think [the next Star Trek] is on the horizon…things are rumbling, so I have a feeling that we will be in production sometime in the next six months.
Doing the math, that would imply that cameras would start rolling by mid March 2015. That is consistent with previous reports and comments (including from Bob Orci) that the film will start shooting "early next year." So while it isn’t new information it is noteworthy that since the first draft was confirmed to be finished last month the schedule remains the same. Fans will remember that both of the previous Trek films experienced changes in their production and release schedules. Earlier in the summer Paramount announced the next Star Trek will be part of their 2016 schedule, but they have yet to set a specific release date.
