While JJ Abrams is out doing promotional duties as producer of Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol producer J.J. Abrams, all anyone really wants to ask him about is Star Trek 2. However Abrams is notoriously tight-lipped, so he’s not saying much, but he did let slip to MTV that the movie will be shot in 2D and converted to 3D later, with some scenes possibly shooting in IMAX.
“We’re shooting on film, 2D, and then we’ll do a good high-end conversion like the Harry Potter movie and all that,” Abrams says. “Luckily, with our release date now (May 17th, 2013) we have the months needed to do it right because if you rush it, it never looks good. We were talking about [shooting in IMAX] and I would love to do it. IMAX is my favorite format; I’m a huge fan.”
The director wouldn’t say whether, as rumoured, Kahn is going to be the villain, saying that it is too early to talk about the fine details just yet. He did call the script “amazing”, and claims that it will all be on him if this film gets screwed up.
Some are bound to grumble about post-production 3D, but it can be okay if done well. The film begins shooting next month.
