J.J. Abrams On The Role Of The Klingons In STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS
Director J.J. Abrams discusses Klingons and the significance of Alice Eve's Carol Marcus in Star Trek Into Darkness with MTV. The director says you won't need to be familiar with the back story of the Klingons to understand their role in the film.
Chatting with MTV, director J.J. Abrams discussed the inclusion of Klingons and a possible love interest for James T. Kirk in his second Star Trek outing.
On the Klingons.
"We shot some stuff that had klingons in it and then we ended up cutting the scene so it's a deleted scene on the dvd but they are back in this one. Their role in this is definitely adversarial and you'll see how that plays out. But you don't have to know about any preexisting stories to watch this film. "
On Carol Marcus played by Alice Eve.
"Wouldn't [Chris Pine] like that [having Alice Eve as a love interest]. [Kirk] meets [Carol] fairly early on and again- she plays a science officer, she's someone who is part of the adventure and it's an action-adventure movie so once that gets going it's a difficult thing to park the story and say 'lets do a romantic interlude.' But her role is important, she wouldn't be in the movie otherwise."
