Earlier today, Sony Pictures moved its sci-fi tale Singularity out of the May 17, 2013 release slot, scheduling it for November 1, 2013. Paramount Pictures is taking advantage of the opening, by slotting its highly-anticipated sequel Star Trek 2 into the May 17, 2013 release date.
Back in June, J.J. Abrams said he won't be making Star Trek 2 in 3D, although it appears that has changed. This new report reveals the sequel will be presented in 3D, but it isn't known if they plan to shoot it in 3D, or convert it in post-production.
We reported last week that Star Trek 2 will start production on January 15, 2012, which gives the sci-fi sequel plenty of time for both filming and post-production. That report also revealed director J.J. Abrams is scouting locations in Hawaii for a "jungle planet."
Star Trek cast members Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, and other key actors are expected to return for the sequel, although no deals have been made yet. J.J. Abrams will direct Star Trek 2 from a screenplay by Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman, and Damon Lindelof.
