Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg, John Cho, Anton Yelchin
Director: J.J. Abrams

U.S. Opening Date: May 17, 2013

Is it Star Trek 2 or Star Trek XII?

Well, considering that the 2008 “reboot” was so blatantly aimed at attracting newcomers to the franchise instead of appealing to old-timers, I’d bet good money that Paramount will settle for Star Trek 2 as a title for this as-yet-untitled sequel to J.J. Abrams’ 2008 Star Trek flick.

(The recent sequel to Rob Zombie’s Halloween remake was titled Halloween II even though there already was a Halloween II made in 1981 and it was actually the 355th Halloween movie to be made . . .)

Only a few things are certain right now:

(a) Star Trek 2 will get made because it was one of 2008’s biggest (and most unexpected) box office hits, which did good business when positive word of mouth lured non-Trekkies to cinemas to check it out.

(b) Robert Orci, Alex Kurtzman and Damon Lindelof, the Lost and Fringe regulars, are currently working on a screenplay.

The rest – that the villains will be Klingons, etc. - is pure speculation . . . for now.
