Dubai production company Filmworks has collaborated with Paramount Pictures to bring the third installment of the Star Trek trilogy to Dubai, reported The National.

Skydance Productions head David Ellisson tipped that the luxurious city could be the setting of a “vertical alien city” that the Starship Enterprise crew bump into on their five-year long journey.

It is still unknown when shooting in Dubai will take place.

The movie is set for a July 2016 release, in time for the 50th anniversary of the original Star Trek TV series.

Filmworks has also lured big films such as Syriana and Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol to film in Dubai.
