Star Trek - J. J. Abrams Undecided About Directing Star Trek 2

J. J. Abrams will not decide if he will direct 'Star Trek 2' until he has seen the script.

The filmmaker - who helmed the reimagining of the sci-fi television show in 2009 starring Chris Pine and Zoe Saldana - "hopes" he will be involved but is holding back from making a final decision until he has seen the story.

He said: "I guess the idea of not wanting to choose to direct a film, for which I've not read a script. It's a tough decision to make without seeing any pages.

"That's not to say that I don't have all the faith in the world in the spectacular writers. Damon Lindelof, Bob Orci and Alex Kurtzman are awesome. My hope is that they'll write the script, it will be great and we can make a fun, exciting sequel to 'Star Trek'."

Although Chris Pine - who starred as Captain Kirk in the new version - has previously said filming will get underway by the summer, J. J. does not yet know of any specific start date but expects the script when the trailer for his new sci-fi movie 'Super 8' is in.

He told Collider.com "Do I have a date? That's a good question. I probably do. I don't know. There's a script that should be coming in, hopefully by the time there's a trailer for 'Super 8', and then we'll know."

The new 'Star Trek' - which saw the Vulcan home world get destroyed by a vengeful Romulan - made $385 million at cinemas worldwide.
