Paramount is jumping at the bit to sign up the Star Trekwriters for a sequel, according to scribe Roberto Orci. Is Paramount counting their Horta eggs before they've hatched? [Trek Movie]
Really, wow. I find that promising. I just can't see how this is going to translate into much of a hit, no matter how good it is. That is, I think Abrams has a bit of a Kobayashi Maru on his hands. I just don't think there is enough of an audience left for Trek, after how far Rick Berman drove away general audiences from the franchise.
But if they're rushing to seal a sequel... interesting.
