Star Trek Sequel To Be "Made In 3D", Due May 2013

I assume that by saying JJ Abrams is “going to be making the movie in 3D”, Deadline‘s piece on the Star Trek sequel is referring to it being shot in the format and not post converted. Of course, post production is as much the making of a film as its production, unless we’re talking about La Tarea or something, but I think we can expect that the word “made” is here being used as a synonym for “shot.”

Trek 2, or Trek 12, or Keep Trekkin’ or whatever it ends up being called, will start shooting in the new year for a freshly minted release slot on May 17, 2013. It will once again have a score by Michael Giacchino, as the composer himself told Coming Soon.

Anyway – what is it with films being shot in 3D having lush, kinda jungly environs? There’s this new Trek, apparently; not long ago there was Pirates 4; Avatar is perhaps the standard bearer; but don’t forget The Creature From The Black Lagoon, a film many still hold up as the best 3D in film history.
