Director J.J. Abrams is currently doing press rounds for the Television Critics Association's winter tour, where he revealed that he still hasn't made a decision about directing Star Trek 2 yet:
J.J. Abrams says a Star Trek 2 script will be ready in March
"I guess the idea of not wanting to choose to direct a film, for which I've not read a script. It's a tough decision to make without seeing any pages. That's not to say that I don't have all the faith in the world in the spectacular writers. Damon Lindelof, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman are awesome. My hope is that they'll write the script, it will be great and we can make a fun, exciting sequel to Star Trek."
J.J. Abrams claims that the Star Trek 2 script will be ready by March. The director also confirmed that the first trailer for J.J. Abrams' latest directorial effort Super 8 is coming in March as well.
Star Trek 2 is said to begin production sometime this summer, with a June 29, 2012 release date already in place. To read more from J.J. Abrams about his upcoming projects,
