Bruce Greenwood, who played Christopher Pike in J.J. Abrams' Star Trek , revealed to Hollywood.com that filming on the sequel will start in January. "I just know that the plan is to film it in January, more than that, I don't know," Greenwood said, adding that he hoped to have a role in the movie. John Cho, Simon Pegg, Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban and Anton Yelchin are expected to return in the June 29, 2012 release. Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman again wrote the script.

5:32 PM (2 hours ago)Star Trek Sequel to Shoot in January, or not Until Summer 2011?from /Film | Blogging the Reel World by email@example.com (slashfilm.com)
You can only rely on actors to a certain degree for info about when a film will shoot. (See: Michael Caine with respect to Batman 3, or the returning cast talking about The Hobbit.) Not because they’re deliberately sowing misinformation, but because they’re only privy to one part of the decision making process. And that’s usually the last part.
So when Bruce Greenwood says that the sequel to J.J. Abrams‘ Star Trek will shoot in January, it might be an indicator and nothing more. Greenwood, who played Christopher Pike in Star Trek, told Hollywood.com that he hoped for a role in the film and “I just know that the plan is to film it in January, more than that, I don’t know.”
So…he doesn’t know for sure that he’s got a role, but does know when the movie is filming? Interesting. Especially in light of the fact that producer Bryan Burk two weeks ago told TrekMovie.com that “We will be shooting this time next year. Starting early summer or late spring.” If that ends up being the case, pre-production might begin in January, or earlier, so that might be the date that Greenwood heard.
Meanwhile, Burk also talked in vague terms about the sequel, noting that things are only partially set as the story is just being worked out. Says Burk,
Monetarily I can’t talk about anything because there is no script yet. I can tell you as we go into it, that our aspirations are for the movie to be even bigger and better than the first one. I don’t mean that just in scope, I mean content and characters and emotionally. We had a lot of conversations about Batman Begins and how that movie kind of re-invented that franchise, and we looked at what The Dark Knight did and how that really ramped it up and they went to a different place with that film, and how those two films keep re-inventing themselves and are not the same thing every time. So we have strong ideas of what we want to do and we are hoping that this one is an even bigger film than the last one.

Are they going to try and re-invent space opera? Pretty ballsy.

Would you trust any other group of creative peoples to do it? I mean, these guys have all at one point or another, reinvented what we thought we knew - there hadn't been a spy drama like Alias before, Lost changed the face of episodic television, etc.

While at San Diego Comic Con, Bob Orci and Alex Kurtzman talked to MTV about the Star Trek sequel. They said that they are "making significant progress on the story" for the sequel and they are spending a two hour lunch break each day while they are filming Cowboys and Aliens to work on Star Trek. Orci also noted that the second film allows new opportunities:
"Now that we’ve set up everybody – there were new characters in the last one, so we really want to focus in on them. For example Scotty, who you met at the end of the last movie, who [was] so important to the crew but had the shortest screen time, now is going to be in the movie from the very beginning. In fact, the whole crew is in it from the beginning. In the last movie they came in staggered and it really was focusing on Kirk and Spock and now the whole family is there and you want to focus on them first. Before you worry too much about new characters, make sure you have them taken care of".
Orci also seemed to imply that Bruce Greenwood would be returning and that we would see more of Karl Urban’s McCoy. When asked who "popped" in the first film Orci replied:
"I loved, and a lot of people loved, Captain Pike. I loved Bones, who a lot of people thought he’s too good-looking to be cast as Bones… he was a fan-favorite. We’d worked with Karl way back in TV land days, so to get back together and have him surprise everyone was great".
