For fans of the J.J. Abrams Star Trek adaptations, I bring good news: Zachary Quinto thinks the next Star Trek sequel will begin filming next year.  On the heels of Into Darkness’s success in grossing $444 million worldwide, Paramount Pictures is looking to begin production on Star Trek 3 sooner rather than later.  Apparently, Abrams is also looking to direct the sequel, although, this raises many questions given his current schedule shooting Star Wars Episode VII. Hit the jump for more details, folks.

star-trek-3-sequel-zachary-quintoQuinto said that although nothing is confirmed yet for Star Trek 3, the current plan is to shoot it soon in 2014, and to shoot it on a faster schedule than Into Darkness.  Per buzzhub (via CS):

“I attended a public interview with Zachary Quinto at the Galway Film Festival in Ireland on Friday, and during it, he revealed that Paramount have told the Star Trek cast that they’re planning to shoot ST3 in 2014, and that J.J. still wants to direct!

The actor also said he was not interested in teaming with Abrams on Star Wars, but he did mention his interest in making a cameo appearance on The Big Bang Theory.  Seeing as the original Spock, Leonard Nimroy, recently had a cameo on the smash hit sitcom, this would seem fitting.

Perhaps the biggest question that comes from Quinto’s update is whether or not Abrams really will find the time to direct Star Trek 3 in the midst of his hectic Star Wars commitment.  However, as Quinto said, nothing is confirmed.  If someone other than Abrams were to direct the next Star Trek, who do you think it should be?
