Cinema Blend says:
We’ve been talking for months now about the extremely slow movement towards getting the next Star Trek made. After that first movie it felt like it was on its way to becoming the next, big franchise but director JJ Abrams and pretty much everyone involved finished it, promised another one, and then didn’t work on it. They chose instead to move on to other, unrelated projects. This weekend though, one of those other projects, the JJ Abrams directed movie Super 8 opens in theaters. Now that he’s got that out of his system, can we please get another Star Trek? Abrams said yes to that today, when we spoke with him at a junket promoting Super 8.
