Zachary Quinto Talks J.J. Abrams’ STAR TREK 2, Calling it “Bigger and Bolder”

     September 5, 2012


Just a few short days ago, Chris Pine talked briefly about his experience on Star Trek 2saying the film would keep its comedic elements, but the crew of the Starship Enterprise would face an even greater threat.  Now, co-star Zachary Quinto has a few words of his own to share on the J.J. Abrams’ sequel, calling it “bigger and bolder.”  Quinto had much more than that to say, and you can read it after the jump.

Star Trek 2, also starring Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin, John Cho, Simon Pegg, Zoe Saldana, Alice Eve and Benedict Cumberbatch opens May 17th, 2013.

“It was bigger.  It was bolder, I think, than the first one, and that was pretty big and bold from my stand point. I’m really excited to see what they do with it.”

The actor has wrapped filming his part, but was non-committal as far as plotlines go (not uncommon for an Abrams’ flick):

“I feel like, you know, my work is done on the movie right now and until we have to go and promote it, then my work remains done and I let J.J. and his incredible team of people get in there and do the work that they need to do now.”

“I feel very fulfilled, but I don’t feel particularly attached to what the outcome of that project will be because I have faith in the people that I was collaborating with to make it as good as it can be.”

More to his liking are smaller indie projects which Quinto can take on in a producer capacity, like last year’s Margin Call: 

“I’m just happy to be working on something else and be creatively fulfilled in other ways and be producing movies and be thinking about how I can, you know, get behind the camera in different ways and tell my own stories.”

Before Star Trek 2 debuts next spring (hopefully with a title), you can check out Quinto this fall on FX’s American Horror Story: Asylum
