Possible delay for 'Star Trek 2'

Possible delay for 'Star Trek 2'
June 6th, 2011 | By Henry Hanks

Director J.J. Abrams' latest film, "Super 8," comes out this Friday, but what about the highly-anticipated sequel to his 2009 take on "Star Trek"? Will it still be released next summer, as planned?

"I'm not so sure, but I know that we're trying," Abrams told CNN on Sunday at the press junket for "Super 8." "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."

The sequel is currently set for a June 29, 2012 release. Abrams has plenty on his plate, including the upcoming TV shows "Person of Interest" and "Alcatraz," and he reiterated that he wants the next "Star Trek" to be a worthy sequel.

"I'm not inclined to push it. I'm inclined to make a movie that's good and if it works out in that timetable then we'll all be thrilled," he said. "If it doesn't, when the movie comes out it'll be worth the wait."

One can only assume that there will be no appearances by Captain Kirk's arch-enemy Khan in this "Star Trek 2."

Are you looking forward to the next "Trek"? Are you willing to wait a little longer for it? Tell us below.

That's okay. The first one wasn't all that great. I mean, it was entertaining, but didn't knock my socks off. Waiting to make sure it is a good film is much more preferable to a rush job just to satisfy fans. Because those same fans will be the ones griping if it stinks.

Wow and I thought the ST movie was pretty good. It will be good getting to see quality SciFi being produced and not some B rated venture like the crap on SyFy these days...

I thought the Star Trek movie was great. Really felt they had developed a clever way to push the reset button and put a new spin on the franchise. There are so many movies comming out this year that I hope turn out good, Captain America, Green Latern, and others. Will keep my fingures crossed.

I happily look forward the next Trek movie. Soon would be nice, but I'll wait for some quality work. I totally loved Abrams vision of a revamped Trek. "Live, long & prosper".

Hi All,

Did Abrams or anyone else happen to give us a hint into what the plot line for this movie will be?
