So where are things right now on STILL STAR TREKKING - Straight from JJ - and Jack Black?

Hey folks, Harry here... Ok, as you saw in the PREDATORS piece - I had received a couple of notices about JJ Abrams casting Jack Black as Harry Mudd in the next STAR TREK. Even though I KNOW that any casting on the next film will most likely begin after they've actually started to have real meetings and an outline for the next film... I wrote JJ about it anyways. Who knows what he'll say. Here's what he said:
Yes, talking to Jack Black about doing something -- but not Mudd.
Bryan, Damon, Alex and Bob and I have not had MEETING ONE about a sequel.
Brief, casual, blue-sky conversations, of course. But "okay, what's next for The Crew?" Not a meeting. So any character decisions, let alone actor discussions, feel like a ways away.
I can tell you one thing. For the sequel? I think we should have a shitload more lens flares.
Hope your summer is going well -- DYING to see The Hangover.
Talk soon, Sir!
Ok - so what do we take from this? Well... There's going to be a shitload more Lens Flares!!!! But the real question is this... Are the Lens Flares indicative of the Q Continuum's presence monitoring the events of the Enterprise? Are they Self Aware & Intelligent Lens Flares? Could be!
And then there's whatever JJ is talking to Jack Black about... but we know it has nothing to do with Mudd - and very likely not STAR TREK related as they've made no character, actor or plot decisions yet. So bottle up those STAR TREK rumors for now, ok?
Meanwhile, let me put this to you. Given the set up this first film gave us - where would you like to see them go next?
