Star Treki is still nearly a year away, but Paramount is apparently already looking to bring back writers for a follow-up:
“I can give you a spoiler about the Studio’s state of mind (not about the movie itself). The spoiler is that they already want to lock us down to write the sequel,” co-writer Roberto Orci revealed to TrekMovie. “Take that as you will.”
We already know that the main cast have options for two additional films, but this move allows Paramount to quickly move forward on more installments, so long as the film does well next summer.
