Star Trek sequel, Star Trek 3 to Start Filming in 6 Months

Star Trek 3 is ramping up production, according to Zachary Quinto. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Star Trek actor, Zachary Quinto revealed that filming for the third Star Trek movie may start shortly. “I think it’s on the horizon,” Quinto said, adding that “things are rumbling, so I have a feeling that we will be in production sometime in the next six months.” This will be the first Star Trek movie without J.J. Abrams. It is reported that Roberto Orci, who co-wrote the first two movie will work as a director in the movie. Rumors circulate that the series characters will be closer to the TV series than before.
Orci confirmed with fan site TrekMovie that the first draft of the screenplay was finished in mid-August, and had previously stated that the movie will feature the characters “closer… to the original [television> series characters than you have ever seen,” with the crew of the Starship Enterprise finally out on their first five-year mission into deep space.
Production probably won't start until spring 2015, and it looks as though the movie will be released on the franchise's 50th year anniversary. The original show debuted on Sept. 8, 1966.
