Zachary Quinto looks for ‘Star Trek 3’ to start filming in 2014, eager to appear on ‘The Big Bang Theory’

Zachary Quinto thinks the next Star Trek sequel will begin filming next year.  On the heels of Into Darkness’s success in grossing $444 million worldwide, Paramount Pictures is looking to begin production on Star Trek 3 sooner rather than later.  

Quinto said that although nothing is confirmed yet for Star Trek 3, the current plan is to shoot it soon in 2014, and to shoot it on a faster schedule than Into Darkness.  Per buzzhub (via CS):

“I attended a public interview with Zachary Quinto at the Galway Film Festival in Ireland on Friday, and during it, he revealed that Paramount have told the Star Trek cast that they’re planning to shoot ST3 in 2014, and that J.J. still wants to direct!”

The actor also said he was not interested in teaming with Abrams on Star Wars, but he did mention his interest in making a cameo appearance on The Big Bang Theory.  Seeing as the original Spock, Leonard Nimoy, recently had a cameo.

Abrams appears to be busy working on the Star Wars reboot, but anything is possible. Buzzhub has promised several updates.
