"Damon, Bob and Alex.. wrote the most amazing script," Says J.J. About Star Trek 2
So, shooting for Star Trek XII (or Star Trek 2 as the kids on the interwebs are calling it) is set to begin next month. J.J. tells MTV News that the sets are almost complete and that "Damon, Bob and Alex — they wrote the most amazing script, and I'm thrilled to get a chance to direct it. It's totally mine to screw up, so if you don't like it, it's completely on me." We dig J.J's self effacing humor. One thing that were not so keen on is post-production 3D. Everyone has heard that "2" will be 3D, but from what J.J. has mentioned, it won't be shot in 3D.
"We're shooting on film, 2-D, and then we'll do a good high-end conversion like the 'Harry Potter' movie and all that. Luckily, with our release date now we have the months needed to do it right because if you rush it, it never looks good."
Why not just skip 3D altogether? To me, it seems like more of a distraction than anything. Does it really get people in the seats? Anyway, J.J. also mentioned that he's thinking about shooting in IMAX (which I DO love). Whether it's all of the movie or just a few scenes (ala The Dark Knight & Mission Impossible - Ghost Protocol).
"We were talking about [shooting in IMAX] and I would love to do it. IMAX is my favorite format; I'm a huge fan," he added.
