STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS: Benedict Cumberbatch Shares His Thoughts On J.J. Abrams
We still don't know who Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch is playing in Star Trek Into Darkness (rumour has it that he'll bring the villainous 'Gary Mitchell' to the big screen) but he talks here about working with director J.J. Abrams.
The plot of Star Trek Into Darkness is still shrouded in secrecy, and we have yet to see so much as an official still or piece of footage from J.J. Abrams’ highly anticipated sequel. With all of the cast members from the last film set to return, and a few new notable additions, fans have an awful lot to look forward to. In a recent interview with The Huffington Post, the villain of the film, Benedict Cumberbatch (whose identity in the follow-up is still unconfirmed) talked about what it was like to work with Abrams.
"It was an amazing experience ... I was bound to say that, but it genuinely was. It was just extraordinary. He's a wonderful human being to be around, J.J. [Abrams] -- on every level, as a dad, as a friend, as a director, as a musician ... He's a polymath, he's a really talented human being. And he has time for everyone and it's all done with a really genuine interest in the story. So for all the bangs for your buck that you're gonna get with the film -- which there are going to be aplenty -- you have an investment, you care about what's happening to these characters, so it was really exciting."
Star Trek Into Darkness stars Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, Anton Yelchin, Simon Pegg, John Cho, Benedict Cumberbatch, Alice Eve and Peter Weller, and is set to be released on May 17th, 2013.
