startrekfinalpostersmall-033109With just a little over a month before Paramount Pictures releases Star Trek (May 1, 2009), the studio is moving forward with a sequel and has hired Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman (who wrote the first film) and Damon Lindelof to pen the screenplay.

Director J.J. Abrams will be back to produce alongside his Bad Robot partner Bryan Burk, but no decision has been made yet on whether Abrams will return to direct the sequel.  The three screenwriters will also be receiving producing credit for the sequel.

Read the rest after the jump, plus check out some new photos and high-res art of the final U.S. poster. (more…)

cloverfield-030109At the WonderCon 2009 panel for Star Trek, director J.J. Abrams was about about the progress of the sequel to the 2008 monster movie hit Cloverfield:

“We’re actually working on an idea right now,” Abrams told the packed crowd. “The key obviously at doing any kind of sequel, certainly this film included, is that it better not be a business decision. If you’re going to do something, it should be because you’re really inspired to do it. It doesn’t really have to mean anything, doesn’t mean it will work, but it means we did it because we cared, not because we thought we could get the bucks. We have an idea that we thought was pretty cool that we’re playing with, which means there will be something that’s connected to ‘Cloverfield,’ but I hope it happens sooner than later because the idea is pretty sweet.”
