Zachary Quinto expects to be working on Star Trek 3 soon, and believes that a familiar face will be directing the film.
Appearing at the 2013 Galway Film Fleadh last week, Quinto said that “Star Trek 3 should be filming, I suppose, next year.”
“It’s going to be made a lot quicker than the last one,” he added. “That’s the plan, although nothing is confirmed yet.”
None of that information is terribly surprising, but during the interview, Quinto said something that was, namely that he expected J.J. Abrams to be directing Star Trek 3.
With Abrams working on the newest Star Wars film, it has been assumed that Abrams would be tied up and available to direct the next Trek movie.
