The relaunch of the Star Trek franchise doesn't hit theaters until May 8th, but Paramount is making plans for future films. Paramount is anticipating a huge bow and expects the film to be the first summer blockbuster. As a result, the studio is already planning a sequel and has hired three scribes to write the screenplay. J.J. Abrams will produce the second film through his Bad Robot banner. Whether or not Abrams will direct the sequel is currently up in the air. Abrams directed Star Trek.
The story for the sequel has yet to be fleshed out, but the creative forces behind Star Trek said they'd like the direction of the script to be dictated by the fan reaction to this summer's release. Rudimentary plans for a summer 2011 release are in the works.
