J.J. Abrams Will Direct Star Trek 2

J.J. Abrams has signed on to direct the sequel to his 2009 hit Star Trek. The first film’s screenwriters Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are penning the screenplay with producer Damon Lindelof, and the main cast — including Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto are all set to return. The untitled sequel was originally scheduled to be released in June 2012, but the film has moved off of that date to give the writers enough time to polish the script.

Abrams’ first Star Trek film netted $257 million domestically and $385 million worldwide; the highest grossing Trek movie ever.
