Zachary Quinto Trusts In ‘Star Trek 2,’ Even If J.J. Abrams Doesn’t Direct

The writers for “Star Trek 2” claim to be making “significant progress,” but that doesn’t mean the film is going to be ready to start filming in January 2011, according to Zachary Quinto. That said, Quinto has faith in the sequel’s production team and trusts that whoever ends up directing will be true to what J.J. Abrams started.

“It’s been such an interesting and now complete experience just with the first one,” Quinto told MTV News. “I can’t wait to go back. We have a while until we’re going to do another one. It probably won’t be until next year at this time. I know there are sort of erroneous reports that we’re going back in January — not true, as far as I know.”

The actor name dropped the men in charge of the project, who believes will ultimately make the right choices.

“I have a lot of trust and gratitude and respect for J.J. [Abrams] and for Damon Lindelof and for Bob Orci and Alex Kurtzman,” Quinto stated. “I would obviously love to see J.J. be directing every Star Trek movie that I’m ever affiliated with, but if it’s not the case I’m sure that whoever does will be someone that he has chosen and that he believes in for whatever reason.”
