Looks like we won’t get another voyage of the starship Enterprise next summer after all.
Although Paramount Pictures has still not officially scrapped that release date for the sequel to J.J. Abrams’ smash 2009 franchise reboot, writers Alex Kurtzman and Bob Orci more or less confirmed that the next Star Trek will not be ready for next summer.
In an interview done by Cinepremiere in San Diego last Saturday, on the red carpet for the premiere of Cowboys & Aliens, they said that they don’t expect the movie to begin shooting until January 2012.
That rules out the movie making theaters by next summer and brings into question whether or not the film could be ready by the holiday season next year. It’s looking more like 2013 before we see Kirk and company back on the silver screen.
