J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek Sequel Set for 2013 … in 3D

With all the TV shows and movies and other creative ventures that he’s dipping his grubby little fingers in, it’s any wonder J.J. Abrams has even found the time to commit to directing another “Star Trek” movie at all, much less one that won’t even be released for another 2 years.

But commit he has, and Paramount has now officially slotted the film, to be shot in 3D, for May 17, 2013. That would put the untitled “Star Trek” reboot sequel right after Marvel’s “Iron Man 3” and Guillermo Del Toro’s sci-fi monster movie “Pacific Rim”, but would beat Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel” to the big screen by a month.

The 2013 date is new, with Paramount having set a June 29, 2012 release date earlier. Apparently Abrams wasn’t ready by them. Now that he’s ready, Abrams will direct from a script by Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman and Damon Lindelof, with all the castmembers expected back.

Here’s hoping the 3D trend dies by 2013, though.
