If you’re rapidly losing hope that we’ll see a new Star Trek movie in 2012, our next story won’t do much to quell those fears.
Director J.J. Abrams says the script for the next installment still isn’t ready.
“I just want to make sure that we’re putting the story and the characters, the cast and the crew, and most importantly the audience, first, before we start talking about exactly which locations we’re going to be shooting at and what the wardrobe and visual effects budgets are,” he tells Collidor. “It just seems important that we get the important stuff right first.”
Abrams added: “Once you say, ‘We’re ready to go, but we don’t have a finished script yet’, or, ‘I’m directing the thing and here’s the release date, but we don’t have a finished script’, what starts to happen is that you’re suddenly in production on a movie where you’re thinking, ‘Oh my God, we weren’t really ready!'”
