UPDATE: Apparently this is false as the Facebook page that it was posted on is not Pine’s official Facebook page.
With J.J. Abrams’ wrapping up things on Super 8, his next film, Star Trek 2 is getting ready to get underway, with a start date sometime in the fall. As things start to pick up with the film, details are starting to trickle out. Today we learn that the film will have a love interest for Chris Pine’s character, Captain Kirk. The news comes from Pine himself who posted the following on his Facebook page.
“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 cant give you a date for filming yet, but you guys are going to love it!”
Of course the question is who will the love interest be? Will it be an existing character or someone totally new? Guess we’ll have to wait and see. There are a number of questions surrounding the film, most of them related to the plot. Being a J.J. Abrams film, don’t expect answers anytime soon. In fact, the only thing that is certain is that it’s going to be one hell of a movie.
