Star Trek 2 Movie in 2012

Star Trek 2 MovieParamount is already planning a movie sequel to Star Trek. Both Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman are back to pen the script of Star Trek 2. And they're quite thrilled by the task:

"With a franchise rebirth, the first movie has to be about origin. But with a second, you have the opportunity to explore incredibly exciting things. We'll be ambitious about what we'll do."
Scriptwriter Alex Kurtzman

Scriptwriter Roberto Orci appreciates how the film has been positively received by the public, and understands that they got more freedom for what to do in Star Trek 2 as a result:

"I think the major lesson we learned is that fans were willing to accept differences and surprises, provided that they were somehow echoes or inspired by canon. We still have to be true to Star Trek the next time around, but we've also been blessed with being able to be unpredictable. And that doesn't mean we can just be shocking for no good reason and just throw everything away. ... It still has to echo everything that Star Trek has been.
We have agreed to write another one. We're going to start thinking about it any second now. But we're still just having a mental sorbet before we jump back in. And, you know, just seeing all the reactions to the movie. We want to make sure we take it all in and really figure out what worked and what didn't and proceed from there. But now that we have... an open canvas, ... anything can happen."
Scriptwriter Roberto Orci

Those two dudes brought a real new blood to the Star Trek franchise. And under the direction of J.J. Abrams the first Star Trek movie was close to be a masterpiece.

The timeline has been indeed been changed. So I hope they will seize the opportunity to mark Star Trek with their genius touch again: please ignore the angry old Star Trek fans, we don't want our grandfather's Star trek anymore, no need of William Shatner: just continue on your good track for the movie Star Trek 2!

For now we may expect the movie Star trek 2 to be released in 2012.
