One of the most anticipated movies of next year may have found its title. After months of referring to J.J. Abrams’ next film The Untitled Star Trek Sequel, it seems as though the official name of the project has been revealed and it is: Star Trek Into Darkness.
The news of the new title comes from a source over at Coming Soon. While they haven’t been able to officially confirm the information with Paramount Pictures, the studio behind the project, the site points out that both www.startrekintodarkness.com and www.startrekintodarknessmovie were recently registered on the site Markmonitor, which Paramount also used when they purchased domain names for G.I. Joe: Retaliation.
Part of the reason why it’s interesting that this news drops today is because tomorrow is the 46th anniversary of Gene Roddenberry’s Star Trek (and there’s even a Google Doodle to celebrate it). Quotes from Zachery Quinto about the project also surfaced online today, the actor calling the new film bigger and bolder than Abrams’ reboot (you can read all of his commentshere).
Star Trek Into Darkness (if that’s what it ends up being called) will feature returning stars Quinto, Chris Pine, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, John Cho, Bruce Greenwood, Simon Pegg, and Anton Yelchin and feature newcomers such as Benedict Cumberbatch, Alice Eve, Peter Weller and Noel Clarke. Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, and Damon Lindelof wrote the script and the movie will be in theaters on May 17, 2013.
