While J. J. Abrams is keeping tight-lipped about the much anticipated “Star Trek” sequel, he has revealed to MTV News that the next chapter will be shot in 2D and converted to 3D later, with some scenes possible shooting in IMAX.
“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 (May 17th 2013) we have the months needed to do it right because if you rush it, it never looks good. We are talking about [shooting in IMAX] and I would love to do it. IMAX is my favorite format; I’m a huge fan” says Abrams.
The sets are reportedly ready and the film begins shooting next month. Abrams adds that he’s so happy with the script that the blame will be all on him if this film gets screwed up.
