Zachary Quinto, currently filming his role as Spock in Star Trek Beyond recently spoke about how filming the third incarnation of the rebooted franchise has been different without JJ Abrams, currently busy filming Star Wars, directing them on set.
It’s different without JJ, but Justin Lin has quiet, powerful energy
Zachary Quinto told MTV news yesterday about what it’s like to be in the middle of filming Star Trek Beyond noting that, while things are different without JJ as director, Justin Lin is showing off his directing chops in a different, yet just as powerful way.
“Invariably there’s going to be a different vibe when you remove someone as gregarious and outgoing and talented as J.J.,” said Quinto. “But Justin has come in with this really interesting and confident energy that’s a little bit more reserved and a little bit quieter, but also very powerful and really sure-handed. He knows exactly what he wants this movie to look like and that’s really exciting.”
He also spoke about working side by side with his co-star and the film’s writer, Simon Pegg.
“It’s been incredible to have Simon be so integrally involved in the story because he knows us all so well and he knows our characters all so well,” he said. “We don’t have to walk very far if we have any questions or concerns about stuff in the script!”
