JJ Abrams is back from vacation and beginning prep on Star Trek 2. He’s currently working with writers Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman and Damon Lindelof on the script that will re-team him with the Enterprise crew.

Shooting is slated to begin in January which means there’s no way the film will be ready in time for the June 29th, 2012 release date that Paramount had scheduled for it. You just can’t rush a movie like this. But you CAN rush GI Joe 2: Retaliation, which will take Trek’s June spot. It’s now believed that Star Trek 2 will hit theaters in late 2012 or the summer of 2013. That’s ample time to work on your Klingon costume for opening night. (Deadline)
