'Star Trek 3': Simon Pegg's Script Is Completely New

28 March 2015 1:08 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Simon Pegg is currently making the press rounds for his latest comedy thriller Kill Me Three Times, and he's been fairly open about the scripting process on Star Trek 3. The actor, who plays Scotty in the sci-fi franchise, took over as writer, working alongside Doug Jung to redraft a new version of the script once Roberto Orci was booted off the sequel. And it appears that Roberto Orci's screenplay was completely tossed aside to make way for the ideas had by incoming director Justin Lin. About this latest script, Simon Pegg tells Den of Geeks that it's a fresh take:

"It's completely new. I haven't read Bob (Orci)'s script and they didn't want us to. So we went back to the drawing board. We had creative meetings with Justin and there were things he wanted in there. I haven't written like this before. I've never been a custodian of something, »

Idris Elba Up For Lead Antagonist In ‘Star Trek 3′

28 March 2015 10:50 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Idris Elba is easily one of our greatest and most versatile home-grown actors. The Luther star has proven this many times over the past decade, in roles ranging from a battle-hardened commander in Pacific Rim, to South African President Nelson Mandela.

Of course, this has undoubtedly put the London-born actor in extremely high demand, with rumours even placing him as Daniel Craig’s future Bond successor. Now, it has been revealed that Elba has entered early talks to play the lead baddie in Justin Lin’s Star Trek 3. Previous rumours had placed Bryan Cranston as the newest adversary for Kirk and his crew, however it is unknown if he was up for the same role, or merely that talks have now broken down.

While some may still be dissapointed that J.J. Abrams will no longer helm the film, Simon Pegg’s involvement as co-writer was definitely music to the ears of many die-hard fans. »

28 March 2015 8:39 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Leonard Nimoy's son has announced plans to release a new documentary based on his father's life.

For the Love of Spock will focus on the exploits of the actor, who passed away earlier this month, aged 83.

The documentary will be narrated by Zachary Quinto, who starred as Spock in the recent Star Trek film reboots.

"This will be a tribute to my dad and Spock," Adam Nimoy told Variety.

"We have plenty to work from because my dad loved telling stories and he was very fond of the role."

Adam also revealed that he and his father had planned to release the film before he passed away.

"He felt as if he had plenty of time, but then he declined precipitously. I was struck with the outpouring of affection for him after he died, so this feels like the right thing to do.

28 March 2015 2:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A few days ago Simon Pegg spoke about his work alongside Doug Jung on the script for Paramount PicturesStar Trek 3, stating that the screenplay had to be finished by June “come hell or high water”, and now he’s offered up a few comments on the tone they’re going for on the threequel during a chat with Spinoff Online.

“We just want to take it forward with the spirit of the TV show. And it’s a story about frontierism and adventure and optimism and fun, and that’s where we want to take it, you know. Where no man has gone before – where no one has gone before, sensibly corrected for a slighter more enlightened generation.”

Where no man has gone before - where no one has gone before, sensibly corrected for a slighter more enlightened generation."

Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana and Anton Yelchin are all on board to return for the film which will go into production shortly. »

Star Trek 3: Idris Elba linked with villain role

25 March 2015 2:31 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Idris Elba may be moving from the Marvel cinematic universe to the next Star Trek film...

Yesterday, we reported Simon Pegg's update that the screenplay for the next Star Trek film would have to be completed by June. The movie needs to head into production to hit its July 8th 2016 release date (and it's crucial to Paramount that the new Star Trek lands in the franchise's 50th anniversary year). Pegg is penning the script with Doug Jung.

We already know that the core cast of Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Anton Yelchin, Pegg, Karl Urban and Zoe Saldana are back. New in the director's chair will be Fast & Furious helmer Justin Lin, who takes over from Jj Abrams. And now we learn that Idris Elba is in "early talks" to play the lead villain role in the movie.

As of yet, of course, we've no idea who that villain will be. »

Idris Elba in talks for villain role in Star Trek 3

25 March 2015 11:09 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to Variety, fan-favorite actor Idris Elba – who’s rumored for every genre role from James Bond to Green Lantern – is in preliminary talks to star as the villain in Star Trek 3

As is the case with these new Trek films, the role itself is being kept under wraps, though previous rumors and comments from co-writer/producer Damon Lindelof in 2013 pegged Klingons as the adversaries this time around. Since there’s been a bit of a regime change with the franchise, there’s no telling if that’s still the case, and Variety’s sources refused to give any confirmation.

Tell us, would you like to see Idris Elba take on the Enterprise crew in Star Trek 3? Who (or what) would you like to see him play? Sound off in the comments below.

Directed by Justin Lin (Fast & Furious 6) and co-written by Simon Pegg and Doug Jung »

Idris Elba In Talks To Play Star Trek 3 Villain

25 March 2015 10:18 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

The Star Trek movies are only as good as their villains and after the last entry used the franchise’s best in Khan, the question of where the saga turns to next has fascinated every fan since Star Trek Into Darkness’ release two years ago.

Now Variety doesn’t quite have the answer to what character we can expect to see troubling the Enterprise this time around, but they do know which Hollywood A-lister is likely to play him.

Luther and Thor actor Idris Elba is reportedly in early talks to take the lead villain role in the still untitled Star Trek 3.

As you can probably expect from the J.J. Abrams team, details of exactly which character from Star Trek lore (or whether it’ll be someone new) Elba would be portraying is being kept tightly under wraps.

Certainly Into Darkness heavily hinted towards a pending Klingon vs Federation »

While no details about the villain have been revealed, there are rumors that the Klingons could emerge as an evil force, since they have not been fully shown in the first two movies. That has yet to be confirmed. Paramount and Skydance Pictures would not comment on the casting, or the villain's identity. Even if Idris Elba's character is a Klingon, we likely won't know until the sequel hits theaters. You may recall that it was long »

Idris Elba Now in Early Talks to Play Unknown Villain in 'Star Trek 3'

25 March 2015 9:12 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

As of now, we still know very little about Star Trek 3 when it comes to the story. What we do know so far is that Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana and Anton Yelchin will all be back on the Enterprise, with Pegg pulling double duty as co-writer of the script with Doug Jung. Getting behind the camera this time is Justin Lin of the Fast & Furious franchise, which has certainly raised some eyebrows. And now it's time for the supporting cast to get filled out, including the new villain for the sequel, and Variety has word that Pacific Rim and Thor: The Dark Wold star Idris Elba is in talks for the key role. As of now there's no word on who he would play, but there have been rumblings of the Klingons being the main adversaries this time. And when you consider »
