'Star Trek 2' star Chris Pine says he hasnt heard about filming in January; Wants 'a shot' at ZoŽ Saldañas Uhura in the next film Despite recent reports from Comic-Con that filming for Star Trek 2 is slated for January, star Chris Pine, who plays Captain James T. Kirk, claims he's in the dark about the dates.

When about the shooting schedule for the film, Pine said in an interview Tuesday with OnTheRedCarpet.com, "I dont know. I havent heard. Im always the last person to find out. Its sometime next year I know. I dont know if its January.

So what does the leading man know? What he'd love to see happen for Kirk in the next film. "Kirks got a great sense of humor and I would love to see that explored more," he told reporter Rachel Smith in a rehearsal room for the play "The Lieutenant of Inishmore." He stars in the Los Angeles run of the show as Padraic, a terrorist in Ireland.

Pine also remarked that he hoped in the next movie Kirk and another member of the Enterprise crew get a chance at romance. "I want at least one shot at Ms. [ZoŽ] Saldaña. I mean please, please God have mercy." In the film Saldaña plays Uhura, who was last seen romantically linked to Zachary Quinto's Spock. Pine jokes, "Maybe her in her little Avatar outfit."

Since Star Trek took off as a summer box office smash of last year, Pine has got a full schedule on his hands which includes recently wrapping up Unstoppable with director Tony Scott and Denzel Washington. "To work with two guys that have been at the top of their game for so long was such a big thrill for me," Pine said.
