Star Trek 3 details on plot and filming emerge…

September 20th, 2014 by Marc Comments

With Star Trek III hurrying to filming next year (here) it’s having a knock on effect on those involved and their other projects.

Director Roberto Orci has had to drop out as executive producer of the Power Rangers reboot due on July 22nd 2016 due to scheduling issues. It seems that filming may be kicking off on February 15th 2015 and the plot will see the movie picking up years after Into Darkness, well into the crew’s five-year-mission.

“The story will serve as a stand-alone episode from the many adventures that would have taken place over the course of this time. While Earth played an important role in the previous two films, it will not be visited at all during the course of the movie.”

Finally, the rumour is that the pre-vis work has already started even though the movie won’t be green lit until Paramount can agree on a budget.

So, that’s how films get made these day, huh? Mad.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
