Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana and Benedict Cumberbatch on the set of Star Trek 2
I feel like we just got the major casting announcements wrapped up for the long awaited sequel to STAR TREK and now they’re already filming. MTV has posted two set photos taken, showing Spock and Uhura in action against the film’s villain, played by Benedict Cumberbatch. Of course, whenever you see action in a Star Trek film, you have to wonder where Captain Kirk is hiding out. My guess is he’s on set somewhere, but these don’t look like official images, so we’ll have to wait a while before we get some good photos. But for now, this should be enough to whet the appetite of all you Trekkies out there.
STAR TREK 2 will star Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, Zoe Saldana, Anton Yelchin, John Cho, Bruce Greenwood, Benedict Cumberbatch, Alice Eve and Peter Weller. The J.J. Abrams directed film will hit theaters on May 17th, 2013.
