Chris Pine: Kirk gets love action in Star Trek 2

Star Trek fans take note: Chris Pine’s Kirk is getting a love interest in Star Trek Into Darkness, the sequel  to the 2009 film which also starred Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg, Zoe Saldana and Leonard Nimoy.

Pine revealed on his facebook page that he has read the script and that he can assure fans that it’s going to be great one.

“After a thousand questions regarding the Star Trek sequel I can finally say I am holding the draft script in my hand.  I can also now tell you I have a love interest and it’s all looking very exciting. Sorry but I can’t give you a date for filming yet, but you guys are going to love it!”

While little else is known about the plot to the much-anticipated follow up, what is known is that it will focus heavily on a villain. Original rumors indicated that Khan would be the villain, but now sources are saying that Khan won’t be in the sequel. Sources are saying that they’ve been told that the sequel’s story will go against having a traditional villain. Instead, Star Trek Into Darkness will focus on one of five characters from the original series. Star Trek Into Darkness is set to open on June 29, 2012.

Who do you think the villain will be?

    The Chris Pine facebook page is a fake, as is the report. The script is not done and the facebook page will soon be removed.

    This news is making me bounce in my seat. But it’s more to do with the fact that Star Trek 2 is on it’s way…XD

    I grew up watching star trek. I never took it seriously (like some), but I always enjoyed watching its various incarnations. The last star trek had some great special effects, and the actors were believable replacements for the original characters, but all-in-all I thought it sucked. The plot was terrible.

    I LOVED the re-boot. Remember folks this is a different time-line now. So they can change the story alot because Spock was never Captain at that time in previous Star Trek history, and all that other stuff didn’t happen like the Vulcans being wiped out, so they pretty much have carte blanche to change plenty of things to make a whole new series of movies with new villans and such. Khan would be great, but maybe a new villan would be better. Either way, J J Abrams did a fantastic job and so did the writers of the last one so I am excited for this.

    The facebook page is a fake and has been taken down by the request of Chris Pine’s publicists. Check trekmovie.com for accurate news on this.

    I didn’t like the re-boot so much. Remember playing around with time-lines ruined the Enterprise TV series.

    Star Trek without Vulcan seems sucky. Maybe in the next episode they’ll travel back in time to give J.J. Abrams an atomic wedgie.
