A 3-D ''Star Trek'' sequel?

Star Trek director J.J. Abrams met with entertainment reporters today in Santa Monica to hawk the upcoming DVD and Blu-ray release of the summer blockbuster. Abrams told collider.com that the work has commenced on his Trek follow-up, that he hasn't necessarily signed on to direct it and that Leonard Nimoy might return as Spock.


Most intriguing of all, though, was Abrams' suggestion of a possible 3-D Trek, which immediately sent a million geeks across the Internet into seizures of frenzied anticipation:

"Paramount talked to me about doing the first one in 3-D and, having it only be my second film, I was petrified just at the addition of it. I thought it would be another dimension of pain-in-the-ass," Abrams said. "I was just like, 'I want to make a decent 2-D movie.' I was so worried that, instead of being a decent 2-D movie, it would have been a bad 3-D one.

Jjabrams  "I’m open to looking at it ’cause now I feel a little bit more comfortable. And, if I, in fact, direct the Star Trek sequel, 3-D could be really fun, so I’m open to it. What I’ve seen of Avatar makes me want to do it because it’s so crazy-cool looking."

You know what would be even cooler, Mr. Abrams? A 3-D William Shatner cameo. Make it so.
