Another Star Trek XI actor confirms that Star Trek XII is in progress.
As reported by Newsarama, although the script isn’t finished for Star Trek XII, the process of screenwriting for the sequel is under way.
“It’s definitely happening,” said Zachary Quinto. “I know that Bob [Orci] and Alex [Kurtzman] and Damon [Lindelof] and J.J. [Abrams] have been working and talking and developing stories. I don’t think there’s a script yet. I know there’s not a script yet. But they’re working on it and they’re talking about it.” Lessons have been learned from Star Trek XI, said Quinto. “I think the great thing about the experience with the first film is that it really was an organic evolution,” he explained. “And I think that it was rooted in a real sense of creative collaboration and excitement and enthusiasm and support. And I think they want to make sure any subsequent film is rooted in that same territory, in that same landscape,” he said. “So I don’t think anybody’s rushing anything. And I think that’s actually really smart. And I have implicit trust in all those guys creatively and professionally.”
Although working on other projects, Quinto and the rest of the cast will be ready when the call comes to shoot Star Trek XII. “I know when the time is right and everything falls into the place, the crew shall reassemble for the missions,” said Quinto. “But until then, we’re all exploring different landscapes and figuring out the best way for us to go creatively as individuals.”
