New Abrams Project Plus Trek 2 Talk


Another project from J.J. Abrams has been announced.

This time, Abrams is teaming with screenwriter Billy Ray on the untitled project, which is said to be a mystery adventure. The project has been purchased by Paramount.

Abrams will be directing Star Trek 2, and those associated with the sequel are eager to get going, according to postings on Twitter. “I absolutely cannot fucking wait to get back aboard that ship,” tweeted Simon Pegg, Star Trek XI‘s Scotty. “She awaits you with open nacelles,” said Damon Lindelof in reply.

Meanwhile, Roberto Orci interacted with fans over at, saying that when it came to progress on Star Trek 2, it was “steady as she goes.” Another fan asked about Bruce Greenwood, hoping to know if Captain Pike would be making a return in the  next movie. “Are you getting this, Bob Orci?” the fan asked. When Orci replied “Yup,” the fan then asked “Does ‘Yup’ mean that you have got my message and/or Bruce Greenwood will appear in the movie.” “Yup,” replied Orci, no doubt to the sound of gnashing teeth.

It should be no surprise that fans hungry for news about Star Trek 2 will be in for another round of closely-guarded secrets, careful answers, and a bit of teasing as this was also the case with the first movie. It’s all part of the fun while waiting for the highly-anticipated sequel.

    Kirk often had to report into superior commanders in TOS, and Greenwood as Pike was a brilliant touch if you ask me (both the return of Pike, and Greenwood’s performance) so I am all for more Pike. But please fix the engine room.

    Hopefully Pike returning means Talosians returning…

    I can’t wait until it’s done!!!
    Also, I dont think it’s good journalism to post F*** words typed out, children do read this!

    So… when children read “I absolutely cannot f****** wait…” they don’t know what it means? Even writing “I absolutely cannot (explicative deleted) wait…” they don’t know what it means? I’m all for decency in journalism but a healthy conversation about language with ones child is far better than pretending “F*** words” don’t exist. They need to clearly understand what the power of language is.. not to be shielded from languages existence. It’s thinking like this that is now censoring Mark Twain books. Sad sad sad.

    I hope this project is the Myst Movie!

    While I am as excited as the next person for the continuation of Star Trek… I will admit that I have grown slightly bitter towards the new fans XI brought on… previous to XI, Star Trek was still an obscure though, a geeky fandom, cult classic– you also truly knew that when you met a fellow Trekkie that they were a Trekkie for the right reason… not because they think Chris Pine is the hottest thing since peppers.

    It makes me nervous to see “new” Trek-goers, because I know that most likely the majority of their interest to Trek is based off of XI.
