JJ Abrams to Direct Star Trek 2

With the launch of Super 8 a few weeks behind him, Deadline is reporting that JJ Abrams is all but officially signed on to direct the sequel to the 2009 Star Trek film.

According to the report, Abrams recently returned from vacation and is ready to get to work on the script with Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman and Damon Lindelof for the next Star Trek film.

With production expected to begin in January 2012, the idea of the film being ready for a June release just won’t be possible. Instead, Paramount will move the release of G.I. Joe: Retaliation, directed by Jon M. Chu and starring Channing Tatum and Dwayne Johnson, to the June 29th spot.

As we reported previously, the expected release date for the next Trek film will either be winter 2012 or summer 2013.
