If you've been keeping track of the reviews for Star Trek then you already know that it's not only a hit, but should provide a nice stream of revenue for Paramount. And where there's money there are usually sequels. Thanks to the eleventh installment's storyline, the franchise has been given the opportunity to explore infinite possibilities.
Star Trek Sequel(s) Talk
The good people at ComingSoon have caught up with the (film) crew of Star Trek and have discovered that ideas are already going into the script of the next installment.
ComingSoon.net: Are you thinking about a sequel?
Damon Lindelof: Alex, Bob and I are going to be writing it together. We've started preliminary talks with J.J., but obviously it's almost jinxing it to get too far down the road. We want it to come out, we hope it does well, and then we'll take it to the next year. We're a little curious as to what the audience wants. We'll start to get a sense of what they are responding to in the movie. We want to write it for them too.
Alex Kurtzman: We're HOPING sequel. We had the amazing privilege of falling in love with these characters all over again. The idea that we would let them go now seems inconceivable. We can't wait. Hopefully they will let us do one.
Roberto Orci: Fans have been so important. We genuinely mean it when we say we want to wait and see what they think of the first movie. We want to see if we are lucky enough to get a demand for a second movie. Lets see what our fan consultants say. We were fans. These "Star Trek" fans are some of the smartest fans in the world.
Though the sequels from this point on could follow an entirely different timeline, Orci and Kurtzman do admit that they do not expect the stories of the Enterprise crew to differentiate that much.
