Justin Lin’s Star Trek 3 is set to open in theaters July 8, 2016, so the film should start shooting any day now. Star Zachary Quinto, who plays Spock in the franchise, gave fans a behind-the-scenes glimpse at his own preparation for the shoot as he gets into character. Despite popular fan-fiction to the contrary, Quinto does not spend his days sporting Spock’s signature bowl cut, arched eyebrows, and pointed ears; it takes a fair bit of manscaping (Vulcanscaping?) to do the character justice.
Star Simon Pegg has joined the screenwriting team for this untitled installment of the franchise and will join Quinto in front of the camera as well, along with returning stars Chris Pine, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, John Cho, and Anton Yelchin.
Check out Quinto’s behind-the-scenes image as he preps to shoot Star Trek 3:
