Star Trek 2 To Shoot In January 2011

The 'Star Trek' sequel will begin shooting January.

Bruce Greenwood - who played Captain Pike in the J.J. Abrams directed sci-fi action movie - confirms the sequel begins filming at the beginning of 2011, and he hopes to be involved.

He told "I just know that the plan is to film it in January, more than that, I don't know. I'm hustling for it... we'll see."

The 2009 reimagining of the classic TV show, featuring Chris Pine as Captain Kirk and Zachary Quinto as Commander Spock, was a huge box office success upon its release, taking $385 million and gaining an Oscar for Best Makeup.

The cast of the film are all on-board to work on the sequel and Zoe Saldana, who played linguist Uhura in the film, recently confessed she was hoping for more romantic scenes with Quinto.

She said: "There was a huge acceptance and excitement with what director J.J. Abrams and the writers - Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci - did with that twist.

"What they did was a huge gamble - and when it worked, it worked really, really well.

"It would be interesting to see what they are going to do with it. I really hope they keep the relationship and continue to explore it."
