Coming Soon is reporting that Paramount Pictures has decided on a tentative release date for a much anticipated sequel to J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek. Over the past several months, there have been all kinds of reports about writers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman working on a treatment, Abrams kicking around ideas, etc. But to this point, the studio has said nothing.
With this little announcement, they’re not saying much beyond the previous nothing, only that if the sequel does happen it will be released on June 29, 2012. An important strategic movie, as this would put them in place to plant the Trek flag on July 4th weekend, assuming the world doesn’t end by then.
We will have more details if and when they become available.
