Bruce Greenwood, who played Christopher Pike in J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek, revealed to Hollywood.com that filming on the sequel will start in January.
“I just know that the plan is to film it in January, more than that, I don’t know,” Greenwood said, adding that he hoped to have a role in the movie.
John Cho, Simon Pegg, Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban and Anton Yelchin are expected to return in the June 29, 2012 release. Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman again wrote the script.
UPDATE: TrekMovie.com tells us they talked to producer Bryan Burk earlier this month who said that filming would actually start late spring or early summer instead.
