‘Star Trek 2′ Probably Going To Be A Little Late, Says J.J. Abrams

Sunday, June 5 by

If you’ve been looking forward to Star Trek 2‘s planned release date of June 29, 2012, I’ve got some bad news for you: With director J.J. Abrams not even officially signed on for the project, it doesn’t look like that’s a very plausible goal. And that’s not just empty speculation – it comes from Abrams himself in a recent interview:

“I care much more about it being good than it be ready…we’re doing everything we can to make sure schedules don’t get screwed up. I don’t think anyone wants a movie on time that’s not worth your time.”

What’s that? Withholding a movie from theaters in order to make sure it meets an artistic standard? What an outmoded business model! And that’s not the only antiquated method Abrams is planning on using: It’s rumored that the movie might not even be in 3D! Abrams again:

“I have nothing against 3-D in theory. But I’ve also never run to the movies because something’s in 3-D. [As for ‘Trek’], as soon as I read the script, if it says, ‘Somebody pushes at weapon toward the camera in a menacing way,’ and we think, ‘That’d be better in 3-D!’… I dunno.”

Yeah right, like anyone would pay to see a weapon pushed toward the camera in 2-D. Get with it, Abrams. (The Playlist)
