Zachary Quinto and Chris Pine in Star Trek

Filming for ‘Star Trek’ has ended and although the stars of the film can’t really say too much about what they’ve done, Zachery Quinto has teased that the film will be more epic than its predecessor. Quinto has hinted that director J.J. Abrams has upped the ante with the sequel that features Benedict Cumberbatch as a mysterious villain.

At the Short Film Festival hosted by The Wrap, Quinto (who reprises his role as the pointy-eared logical-minded Spock) teased in an interview stating that this ‘Star Trek’ sequel “was better. It was bolder, I think, than the first one, and that was pretty big and bold from my standpoint.”

Although he didn’t go into plot details, he did state that the project is now in the hands of Abrams:

“I feel like, you know, my work is done on the movie right now and until we have to go and promote it, then my work remains done and I let J.J. and his incredible team of people get in there and do the work that they need to do now… I’m really excited to see what they do with it.”

Sounds like Quinto is just chomping at the bit to start promoting the film which is fine by us but, alas, he does need to follow the commands of a higher order (Abrams) and like the rest of us, wait to see what he has up his sleeve.

Regardless, this little bit of news is enough to get me started on polishing my communicator pin and airing out my Star Fleet uniform!

The still yet untitled ‘Star Trek’ sequel is set to be in theaters on May 17.
