To boldy go to the third dimension: Star Trek lastest news

Is it Star Trek 2 or Star Trek 12? It's all hypothetical anyway since the production looks troubled with Paramount pushing for it to be made in 3D, whilst director J J Abrams is dubious about the new technology and won't commit to directing until he's seen a script he's satisfied with.

"I have nothing against 3-D in theory," Abrams said recently. "But I've also never run to the movies because something's in 3-D."

Paramount likes this whole idea of making movies into 3-D, even if few other films have found the same success with it as "Avatar." But there is one thing that 3-D adds: Box office cash. Because 3-D films require a premium ticket price, Paramount stands to make more from a movie like the next Star Trek, and want Abrams to consider using the technology.

The script is being written right now by Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, who wrote the first film. This time, however, they are joined by "Lost" alum Damon LIndelof in the writers room.

Star Trek 2 (12) should hit cinemas in 2012
