J. J. Abrams

Collider talked with J.J. Abrams at the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour, while he was plugging his newest show, Alcatraz. Abrams confirmed that Benedict Cumberbatch has joined the cast, while denying that Cumberbatch would be portraying the main villain in the Star Trek sequel and exclaiming that the actor has “the most awesome name in history.” Abrams also confirmed that shooting for the Star Trek sequel begins this Thursday. Sadly, he additionally revealed that the new Star Trek movie would be converted into 3D and that yes, there would be the trademark Abrams lens flare.
