With 'Super 8' now under his belt, J.J. Abrams is moving forward (not quite at warp speed, but forward) on 'Star Trek 2,' according to Deadline, but since the director is just now meeting with writers and prepping things, the studio has had to scuttle its hoped for June 29, 2012 release date. Instead, it's slotted the Jon M. Chu-directed sequel 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' -- starring Channing Tatum, Dwayne Johnson, Adrianne Palicki, Ray Stevenson, RZA and Joe Mazzello. -- into that date. That means that 'Trek 2' most likely will hit screens late 2012 or summer 2013.

Meanwhile, Paramount has decided to move 'Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol' from its Dec. 16 release date to Wednesday, Dec. 21, away from Warner Bros.' 'Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows' and Fox's 'Alvin and the Chipmunks' sequel. But it will now open against the David Fincher-directed 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' (from Sony). That Friday, Dec. 23, will see the opening of Par's 'The Adventures of Tintin,' Summit Entertainment's 'The Darkest Hour,' Fox's 'We Bought a Zoo' and FilmDistrict's Angelina Jolie-directed 'In the Land of Blood and Honey.'
