'Star Trek 2' — Delayed?
According to Deadline.com, STAR TREK 2 may be facing a delay.
Thus far scheduled for a June 29th, 2012 release, JJ Abrams has not yet signed on to direct the sequel–though he is expected to do so soon.
Writers Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman and Damon Lindelof reportedly have about 70 pages of script/treatment completed, and are waiting for Abrams’ availability and input. Progress is at a standstill until then.
The site is speculating that Paramount Pictures might be inclined to push the FX-heavy TREK film to a December 2012 release to buy enough pre & post production time.
