When are they going to officially announce the next film? Strange to not hear of a greenlight yet
They are still counting the money they are making from STID.
Okay seriously, they are probably waiting to see what JJ Abrams' next move will be and whether they will have to find a new director.
They have to have something to announce/greenlight. Greenlighting involves the studio approving the finances of the film, etc. There's nothing to finance or approve yet. They haven't even developed a story yet.
That's like trying to announce the birth of your next baby when the first one was just born 5 minutes ago.
