J.J. Abrams On A 'Star Trek' Sequel

J.J. Abrams
J.J. Abrams hasn't been short of work recently, with his latest film Super 8 hitting the big screens in the UK tomorrow. However, in a recent interview with Collider, Abrams revealed how he is already considering the possibility of a Star Trek sequel. He is determined not to rush with the project and, although this could mean it will not be released for some time, it should lead to a better film.

There have been a lot of things that we’ve been working on,” he told Collider. “A lot of important elements that we just know we need to really nail down and solve.”

Once you say, ‘We’re ready to go, but we don’t have a finished script yet,” or ‘I’m directing and here’s the release date but we don’t have a finished script,’ you’re suddenly in production on a movie where you’re thinking, ‘Oh my god, we weren’t really ready!’”

I want to make sure we’re putting the story, characters, cast, crew and, most importantly, the audience first, before we start talking about exactly which locations we’re going to be shooting at, and
what the wardrobe and visual effects budgets are. We need to get the important stuff right first.”

It sounds from his interview that Abrams is concentrating on improving on the first film. Although he hasn't been confirmed as director just yet it looks likely that he will land the job soon. 

Anyone looking forward to a Star Trek sequel? Will it be better than the first? Let us know...
