zachary pinto 2 Zachary Quinto Speaks On J.J. Abrams Star Trek 2

With filming for J.J. Abrams’ upcoming ‘Star Trek’ sequel underway, Zachary Quinto (Spock) shared a few details with E! Online about the yet-to-be-titled film: “My eyebrows are shaved and I do my hair in a way that people don’t know I actually have my horrible Spock hair. It’s been really great. We’ve been shooting for a week and a half, and it’s been an incredible return to that world.”

No surprises that Quinto was tightlipped on storylines, he did however reveal that the cast didn’t see the script until just a month before cameras started rolling: “It was the middle of December and finally I had to be like, ‘We need to read the script,’” Quinto said, with a smile. “They waited a pretty long time, but that’s because they were working on it. There was a writer’s strike the first time so they weren’t able to let the script evolve. Now it’s really changing…on a regular basis.”

Finally, the actor spoke on how the new additions to the cast (Benedict Cumberbatch, Alice Eve, Noel Clarke, Nazneen Contractor and Peter Weller) have settled in: “All of them have folded in so beautifully and brought a whole new level of intelligence and sensitivity.”

‘Star Trek 2′ will be released May 17th, 2013 in 3D. The 2009 re-launch of the ‘Star Trek’ franchise by Abrams was met with critical acclaim and a worldwide gross of over $385 million at the box office. Returning to their posts on the Enterprise are John Cho, Bruce Greenwood, Simon Pegg, Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, and Anton Yelchin. Based upon “Star Trek” created by Gene Roddenberry, the as-yet-untitled film is produced by J.J. Abrams, Bryan Burk, Damon Lindelof, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci. The script was written by Alex Kurtzman & Robert Orci & Damon Lindelof.
