Paramount announced yesterday that J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek sequel is no longer on the 2012 summer blockbuster list.
His work on Super 8 delayed production for the Star Trek saga, but now that that’s finished, Abrams is going to start working on the franchise film.
And despite the delay in production, all the key players from the original film will return for the sequel.
Abrams told CNN, “We’re working on the script and story and doing everything we can to make it well. I would just so much rather make a movie that’s worth people’s time than make a movie that’s on time.”
Since Star Trek 2 was slated to play such a major role in Paramount’s summer 2012 releases, they have found a replacement: G.I. Joe: Cobra Strikes.
An official release date has yet to be confirmed.
