Some scenery for Star Trek 2 will be filmed in Iceland, according to TrekMovie.com.
The filming crew, Star Trek‘s 2nd unit, which is headed up by ILM’s visual effects supervisor Roger Guyette, will be filming visual effects shots, not action scenes.
News on the Iceland shoot had appeared in Frettabladid, the local newspaper, which speculated that filming could be for the planet Vulcan. Vulcan, however, met its end in Star Trek XI.
This will be the first time that a Star Trek production has filmed outside of the U.S.
