The tweet shown below was filed by Damon Lindelof on Tuesday. Returning from his well deserved post-LOST vacation, Lindelof is ready to get to work full time on scripting the Star Trek sequel with Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci. We are now exactly two years away from the announced release date of June 29th, 2012.
The screenwriting team told TrekMovie last week at the Saturn Awards that they have a story and that “the next phase is to get together and try to destroy it.” Looks like that can now happen. Orci/Kurtzman claim to have a “front runner” for the sequel’s villain. (Thanks for the tip Don)
