Star Trek 3 Shooting Next Year?

While at the 2013 Galway Film Festival, Star Trek's Zachary Quinto was asked about Star Trek 3 and provided an interesting answer.
Star Trek 3 should be filming, I suppose, next year. It’s going to be made a lot quicker than the last one. That’s the plan, although nothing is confirmed yet.
To be honest I think this is just a guess on Quinto's part. It strikes me as too early but I am not dismissing it either. I do believe Paramount wants a third Trek film but only reason to start filming in 2014 is for a release date sometime in 2015. I really don't see Paramount shooting for a 2015 they probably do not want to be anywhere near the release of Star Wars Episode VII in Summer 2015. This works out nicely with assumption the studio will want to have something for the 50th anniversary of the franchise which is in 2016 despite the three year delay it creates. Thanks to Ghola for the link.
