Star Trek 3 to film in Seoul

Star Trek 3 will be filmed in Seoul, Mayor Park Won-soon said Monday.

“Today I met with Jeffrey Chernov, producer of Star Track 3, at the Paramount Pictures Studio and agreed to film a portion of the upcoming movie in Seoul,” Park said in his Facebook post.

Assuming they go forward with the plan to shoot in Seoul, this is significant as it will be the first Star Trek film to do any shooting outside of United States.

TrekMovie has already reported that the upcoming Star Trek film will not be Earth focused, so it appears that the Korean location will be standing in for some kind of alien location, or possibly a (non-Earth) Starfleet location. It isn’t clear yet if the production is being drawn to Korea through incentives or something unique about Seoul to match the scene they need to create (or combination of the two).

Star Trek 3 is slated for release in 2016 in time for the 50th anniversary of the sci-fi series.
