Star Trek screenwriter Roberto Orci revealed that the next Trek movie might be the first instalment of a two-part story.
Speaking to io9 at Comic-Con, he was asked if they had any further meetings about the sequel, and he replied: “Nothing was decided [at the last meeting]. It was really about… [They said to us] ‘We thought maybe you could do that as like 2 and 3.’”
It’s a fairly vague quote, but it does raise all kinds of possibilities as to the future of Trek. Will they film parts two and three back-to-back like Pirates of the Caribbean? Will part two end on a cliff-hanger a la The Matrix Reloaded?
Obviously we don’t know, but after the great job done by Abrams and Co. on the first Trek we’re looking forward to finding out.
