It wasn’t long ago we learned Star Trek 3 will will premiere on July 8, 2016, just ahead of Sept. 8, which marks the 50th anniversary of the original TV show. Now, thanks to @lemon_buzz on Twitter, we can also confirm Star Trek 3 will officially start filming on April 15 at Vancouver Film Studios in Vancouver, BC.
The movie will be directed by Justin Lin, best known for the Fast and the Furious movies. JJ Abrams, who took the helm on the first two films, has little time in his schedule after moving on to the Star Wars movie.
Chris Pine, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin, and John Cho are all expected to reprise their roles as the USS Enterprise crew.
