Yep, so if they get this done by let's say June and start filming, all should be well. June is almost here though.

I don't care how long they take to get the story right or it they have to push back the release date to do it. As they cross their T's and dot their i's.

I'd probably only start getting curious if nothing had started by August personally.

We'll see. They don't have to have it out by June 2012 from my perspective.

Yep, I'm more interested in them putting out a good movie. I wouldn't care if they ended it pushing it back either.

I think if they had to, ILM could start with storyboards working from a rough draft of the script... maybe color-code those parts of the script that are less likely to be changed or something. Ditto on filming with the actors.

I know the writers' strike of 2007 effected the last movie because it meant the script was essentially 'locked' once the strike began... which seems to at least imply that it's not unusual to otherwise proceed into production with an unpolished script.

The Transformers movies sure seem to ge made in the blink of an eye, and I imagine they're much more complex production-wise. Maybe it just 'seems' that way because they're not something I'm interested in following that closely.

As far as I know, there are always (going by listening to commentaries etc) some revisions that take place after the core script is 'locked' and the main ideas set for bigger films like this.

I think that's happened with previous Trek films as well at times.

CGI-wise, I suppose it'll depend on how elaborate the effects will need to be which in turn depends on what's in the script. I don't know if there would be any way to ever know exactly how long it took to do the first film's effects from day 1 starting with effects shot 1 to locking the final version of the final effect completed.

That would give a clue as to how long it may take.
