The highly anticipated Star Trek 2 from director J.J. Abrams began production earlier this month, and Tuesday we got a glimpse of two of the film's stars, Zachary Quinto and Zoe Saldana, filming green-screen fight sequences in LA. The sequel, now scheduled for a May 2013 release, has been delayed multiple times due to scheduling conflicts and setbacks with the script. We do know the main crew is returning with Chris Pine, Anton Yelchin, Simon Pegg, John Cho, Zoe, and Zachary resuming their positions within Star Fleet. Newcomer Benedict Cumberbatch, seen fighting with Zachary, is also joining the ranks, though no word on his role — are you getting excited for the sequel?
Since 2009, the stars have been busy with other acting projects. Most recently Zoe debuted The Words at Sundance with boyfriend Bradley Cooper while Chris teamed up with Reese Witherspoon and Tom Hardy in the romantic spy thriller This Means War. Zachary did some work on the small screen playing a ghost on FX's chilling primetime drama American Horror Story.
