Idris Elba in Talks to Be the 'Star Trek 3' Villain
The buzz around Hollywood is that Idris Elba is in the running to be the main villain in "Star Trek 3."Variety reports that the "Luther" star is in "early talks" for the role, although there's no more info on what the role will be or who exactly the Big Bad of "Star Trek 3" will be.
In February, a rumor surfaced that Bryan Cranston was being eyed for the role of the villain, but maybe there's more than one villain? The more, the merrier! There are a ton of possible villains for "Star Trek 3," from Klingons to the Borg, so writers Simon Pegg (yes, that Simon Pegg) and Doug Jung have plenty to choose from.
"Star Trek 3" will star Pegg, Chris Pine,Zachary Quinto,Zoe Saldana,Karl Urban, and Anton Yelchin. There have been some interesting behind-the-scenes changes since the film was first announced a few years ago, such as Justin Linreplacing Roberto Orci in the director's seat. Orci was also attached to co-write the script with his former creative partner Alex Kurtzman. In any case, "Star Trek 3" is reportedly still on track to begin filming in June.
