On the red carpet at the Oscars, MTV News’ Josh Horowitz couldn’t help but totally geek out with Zoe Saldana about her two sci-fi franchises, J.J. Abrams’ “Star Trek” and James Cameron’s “Avatar,” both of which are expecting sequels in the near to relatively near future.
But first thing’s first, “Star Trek Into Darkness.” What’s up with Uhura and Spock, everyone’s favorite love-birds aboard the Starship Enterprise? Where does their relationship pick up in May’s sequel.
“I don’t know. They’re figuring things out” Saldana said. “They’re definitely together, you know, because they work together on the Enterprise, and there’s so much that’s going on this time around with their situation as a crew, as the Enterprise, that it definitely is going to add a little stress to their relationship.”
Then there’s “Avatar.” Last we heard the date was set for 2014, and then it was 2015, and then Cameron had bought a farm in New Zealand farm to finish the scripts. So, Zoe Saldana, what is up?
“Last I heard, I spoke with his wife, Suzy [Amis], and she told me that he was definitely very reserved right now and taking his time,” she said. “She barely sees him. He’s just locked up writing, finishing up the script. I know that it’s just a matter of time.”
