Star Trek 2 coming along at warp speed.
The script is being written by Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman and Damon Lindelof, all veterans of J.J. Abrams' productions. (It's not yet known whether Abrams will reprise directing duties on the sequel to his hit series reboot.) The Paramount brass are said to have been pitched the entire story and given it a thumbs-up.
TrekMovie, which points out this article at Screenrant, reports that "all indications are that Paramount is bullish on the Star Trek sequel and wants to get things going to ensure they make their June 29, 2012 date."
The site adds that "things continue to move in the right direction for the 2012 Star Trek sequel, and 2011 looks to be an eventful year for the film moving into to pre-production soon and then production, which is reported to be starting in August."
