It seems that production has wrapped on the still as yet Untitled Star Trek Sequel according to Tweets from a few cast members...I should be more excited--But I am not...
It was recently that the crew will face off with Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch's version of none other than Khan Noonien Singh in the film.
Kahn is the genetically enhanced human of the 1967 episode of "Star Trek" called Space Seed as well as the big screen sequel Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan played by Ricardo Montalban and in the process solidified himself as the best Trek villain period...
I suppose the whole Kahn thing has muted my enthusiasm---That and the lack of a title...
Leonard Nimoy's return as Spock Prime following his larger cameo from "Star Trek" '09 has been walked back now yet not fully denied...Klingons might be making an appearance in the Star Trek sequel. The adversaries were left on the cutting room of the last pic.
Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin John Cho and Bruce Greenwood have all returned to the Final Frontier in their respective roles as Kirk Spock Uhura Dr. McCoy Scotty Chekov Sulu and Admiral Pike.
The Supporting Cast Includes Nazneen Contractor who will play the wife of Noel Clarke’s family man character Alice Eve has a major role as does former "Robocop" star Peter Weller and actor/stuntman Joseph Gatt
