JJ Abrams is to boldly go where no Star Trek movie has gone before with a 3D treatment for Star Trek 2. Worryingly it won’t be shot in 3D but will be a post-converstion job. That’s a bit of blow to those of us that are still scarred by Clash Of The Titans eight-legged horses…
Abrams, speaking to MTV, was quick to assuage doubts by saying, “”e’ll do a good high-end conversion like the ‘Harry Potter’ movie and all that. Luckily, with our release date now we have the months needed to do it right because if you rush it, it never looks good.”
He then went on to extoll his love of IMAX “We were talking about [shooting in IMAX] and I would love to do it. IMAX is my favorite format; I’m a huge fan,” so that also looks quite likely.
He’s keeping schtum about all plot details at the moment and won’t reveal a villain but did say that the writers – Damon Lindelof, Bob Orci and Alex Kurtzman – “wrote the most amazing script, and I’m thrilled to get a chance to direct it. It’s totally mine to screw up, so if you don’t like it, it’s completely on me. Our sets are almost done, so we’re going to go back and start shooting next month.”
