Star Trek Sequel Filming Begins

It has finally begun. After many delays for other projects, the Star Trek sequel has begun filming today. Since it is a JJ Abrams budget, the details on the film are not available, not even what people are playing in the movie besides returning cast members. Other unknowns besides what the film is about is the budget (more or less than previous film) and how long filming will occur. TrekMovie was able to determine that most of the film will be done on studio sets with some on location shooting including that a jungle sequence will be filming in sourthern California instead of Hawaii. Star Trek writer Damon Lindelof essentially confirmed the start of filming on twitter saying "I love the smell of dilithium in the morning. Good to be back." and Roberto Orci wrote on the TrekMovie comments that the Budwiser plant engine room might get an upgrade saying "I'll tell you this. There are some cool improvements to engine room!" The film is set for release on May 17, 2013.
