J.J. Abrams Will Give a High-End 3D Conversion for 'Star Trek 2'


The 'Super 8' director reveals that he will shoot the yet-to-be-titled 'Star Trek' sequel in 2D before converting it like 'Harry Potter' movie, and says that he might also shoot it in IMAX.

Though he is known as a tight-lipped director, J.J. Abrams recently revealed a few tidbits of his much awaited "Star Trek" sequel. Speaking to MTV News during the New York premiere of "Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol", Abrams shared that the yet-to-be-titled sequel is going to have a high-end 3D conversion.

"We're shooting on film, 2D, and then we'll do a good high-end conversion like the 'Harry Potter' movie and all that," the 45-year-old filmmaker said. "Luckily, with our release date now we have the months needed to do it right because if you rush it, it never looks good."

In addition to the 3D conversion, Abrams opened up that he plans to shoot the untitled Star Trek sequel in IMAX format. He revealed, "We were talking about [shooting in IMAX] and I would love to do it. IMAX is my favorite format; I'm a huge fan."

Abrams refused to spill more details, but promises that the movie will be amazing. "It's a little early to be talking about 'Star Trek', but I will say that they wrote - the three writers, Damon [Lindelof], Bob [Orci] and Alex [Kurtzman] - they wrote the most amazing script, and I'm thrilled to get a chance to direct it," he said before adding that the film will begin shooting in January 2012.

"Star Trek 2" is due to arrive in the U.S. theaters on May 17, 2013. Back in June, Abrams claimed that he didn't consider making the sci-fi movie in 3D. He said at that time, "I haven't gotten that threatening phone call from men in suits. I know what's good for me."

The sci-fi movie will bring back Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto and Zoe Saldana as James T. Kirk, Spcok and Nyota Uhura respectively. They are joined by Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin, Karl Urban, John Cho, Alice Eve and Peter Weller.
