News of this comes from The Hollywood Reporter.
Paramount Pictures is "developing ideas for Paranormal Activity 4" and a fourth Transformers movie, Viacom CEO Philippe Dauman said Thursday in highlighting a continued focus on franchise fare. Plus, he said that a Star Trek sequel could hit theaters in 2013.
Which directly contradicts the information provided to us back in Jan. 2010.
J.J. Abrams is "focused on developing the next installment of our Star Trek franchise" for a potential release in 2013, the CEO said during his company's quarterly earnings call.
June 29, 2012 – Star Trek returns (again)
The decision to set the release of the Star Trek sequel to mid Summer 2012 was made today and TrekMovie learned of it only moments ago. FirstShowing.com’s Alex Billington has also just Tweeted the June 29th date, and today the date has also been set on the Box Office Mojo release schedule.
This yet another example of how you can go to any film/TV production company and find projects delayed or cancelled after that company makes a public announcement. People who actually work in this business will tell you this type of thing happens often in Hollywood. If you do not believe me here is an example of it happening before.Originally the hope was that the Star Trek sequel would arrive in the Summer of 2011. In March 2009 Paramount tried to jump the gun by signing on the writers (Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman, and Damon Lindelof). However in the ensuing months the Summer of 2011 has become very crowded, and the schedules for the Star Trek team (especially JJ Abrams) has got even more crowded.
