Star Trek 2 Won’t be Called Star Trek 2

Star Trek reboot cast
AICN is flush with rumours this morning regarding the upcoming JJ Abrams Star Trek sequel. The most important of those rumours are that shooting for the upcoming sequel is set to begin in the middle of January, and that all reports suggest the sequel will not be titled Star Trek 2.

Frankly, given I’m already not a fan of the rebooted movie, I’ll be exceedingly grateful if this particular rumour is true. We already have a Star Trek II and it’s considered by many to be a masterpiece. Why mess with that?
