<em>Star Trek 2</em> Slated for Summer 2012 Release

Deadline reports that Paramount Pictures has “scrapped a tentative plan” to revive the Jack Ryan franchise, meaning Chris Pine — who was involved with the project — can work on the follow-up to Star Trek, allowing Paramount to maintain a June 29, 2012 release date.

J.J. Abrams, who directed the first reboot of Star Trek, just finished Super 8; it’s still uncertain whether he’ll direct the next Trek installment.

Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Damon Lindelof are working on the script.
