Citing a feeling rather than logic, Spock actor Zachary Quinto suggested filming could begin by early 2015 on Star Trek 3.
“I think it’s on the horizon,” he revealed during an appearance on The Today Show, where he was promoting his Starz documentary series The Chair. “Things are rumbling, so I have a feeling that we will be in production sometime in the next six months.”
The Paramount Pictures film hasn’t announced a director, but the general consensus is that Roberto Orci, who co-wrote the first two installments of the rebooted franchise, will be behind the camera.
He spoke about the film in June, explaining, “In [Into Darkness] they set out finally where the original series started. The first two films – especially the 2009 [Star Trek] – was an origin story. It was about them coming together. So they weren’t the characters they were in the original series. They were growing into them and that continues on in the second movie. So in this movie they are closer than they are to the original series characters that you have ever seen. They have set off on their five-year mission. So their adventure is going to be in deep space.”
