They are going to have to start filming soon if they want to make that summer 2012 release date. A special effects heavy movie like Trek will require tons of post filming work.

Yeah, I don't see it making the release date either.

I wonder if they are still crafting the actual story, or rewriting drafts, or what?

There's nothing as yet to indicate the release date is in any danger. Scripts go through so many changes and alterations and work.

Summer 2011 is still listed as the start of actual production and there's still time until then. If we get to the summer and THEN release dates start to shift, then that might tell something.

As it is, I have no reason to believe June 2012 is in any danger.

It's already almost May, Summer is right around the corner. Although, you are right. They do still have time. That's why I raised the question, is this minor rewrites or are they still working on the main story?

I think the story isn't entirely nutted out.

That's unclear, true.................but if it's rewrites then it could simply be a series of drafts.

Most dates referring to Summer 2011 indicate production wasn't meant to start until June/July or even August. The first movie filmed for about 3 months or so (the bulk anyway) so there's nothing at this point in danger regarding the schedule that has been hinted at.

Post periods vary on film to film, it can be anywhere from 6 to 18 months. It all depends on the scale of effects.

I would imagine that the scale of the effects would be quite high on the sequel though.

Well, that's true. But they were high on the first and the film could have been delivered in Dec 2008 when Paramount moved it.

It started filming in December 2007 - so that's about 12 months. Abrams did admit that the extra time allowed them to finesse the effect even better, but the film itself was ready for release in the original December slot.

If there are serious script issues that will affect the release date it will become clearer over the Summer. Because we will know when production kicks off.
