Rumour: Zachary Quinto says Star Trek 3 star begins filming in 2014

Second sequel to be shot in less time than first

With J.J. Abrams having committed himself to a galaxy far, far away, there had been worries as to how he will be able to continue his work on the rebooted Star Trek franchise.

However, according to star Zachary Quinto, plans are afoot for the third Star Trek film to begin filming in 2014, with Abrams still keen to remain at the helm.

According to Buzzhub, the actor confirmed as much during a public interview in Galway, Ireland, last Friday, before revealing that the plan is to turn the third film around in much less time than the second.

Even a tighter shoot would appear to be problematic for Abrams, given his commitment to Star Wars: Episode VII, but if anyone can wangle a bit of leeway from the studios, it’s J.J..

Could this mean that we get both a Star Trek and Star Wars movie in 2015? Nothing official has been confirmed as yet, but it’s a proposition to get sci-fi fans very excited indeed…

Would you like Abrams to return for round three? Tell us, below!

      Got a touch of sunstroke have you George? At least Den Of Geek has the correct franchise in THEIR title :) I realise this post won't make any sense once they change it, so for those of you reading this later in the day, here's what it currently says at 8:25am on Monday morning "Rumour: Zachary Quinto says Star Wars 3 star beings filming in 2014" ... lol :)

      Amended... Ah, my OCD side can relax now... As for the actual story, I can't see this being true. I reckon Abrams isn't going to divide his attention between Star Wars VII and ANYTHING, Trek or no. I'm hoping he'll be involved in a producer\consultant role, in the interests of keeping the tone of the first two consistent, but I think the responsibility of making the new SW flick will negate him doing anything else until that's finished...

      Good grief, we know where Galway is. You don't need to go all American with all that Paris, France nonsense. Back on topic, I'd like to see JJ concentrate on making the best Star Wars film he can and pass Star Trek 3 to someone else.

      I don't care how much freakish energy J.J possess there is no way he'll be shooting Star Wars VII and Star Trek 3 in the same year.
