Today, a new photo has leaked from the set of the Star Trek sequel.
In a photo provided by Eric Ford of On Location News, Zachary Quinto as Spock, wearing a red metal suit (reminicent of Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man), is being lowered at a high rate of speed in a stunt scene. The scene is said to later involve a post-production volcano.
Along with the photo of Quinto, On Location News provided the following description:
After first rehearsing the scene with a Spock’s stunt double actor, Zachary Quinto was then rigged to a wire in front of a large green screen and lifted to a height of 10 stories high then dropped at a high rate of speed as if he was falling. In the scene Spock is wearing a “Volcano Suit” and carrying an unknown piece of equipment with the Starfleet emblem. A volcano is somehow involved in this scene. The crew had a real fire burning off camera to catch the fire reflections on Spock’s “Volcano Suit”.
The last photos to leak, back in March, depicted a battle between Quinto and the film’s villain Benedict Cumberbatch.
The Star Trek sequel, starring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, John Cho and Benedict Cumberbatch, hits theaters on May 17, 2013.
