The last we heard about Star Trek 2, the script hadn't been completed yet. In a Facebook update from Chris Pine, who will reprise his role as Captain Kirk from 2009's Star Trek, the actor revealed that the screenplay is now, in fact, finished. Here's what he had to say below, which includes the news that James T. Kirk will have a love interest in this upcoming sequel.
"After a thousand questions regarding the Star Trek sequel I can finally say I am holding the draft script in my hand. I can also now tell you I have a love interest and it's all looking very exciting. Sorry but I cant give you a date for filming yet, but you guys are going to love it! (Welcome to) People is going great, finishing filming soon. Good to be working in LA again. Looking forward to summer. Take care."
Although Chris Pine's message was later deleted from his Facebook page, it is a good indication that Star Trek 2 is inching forward. We reported in January that Paramount wants to shoot the sequel in 3D. It isn't clear if that is still the plan for Star Trek 2 at this time.
