STAR TREK 2: Alex Kurtzman Praises Cumberbatch; Hints At Story Element

One half of the writing/producing team behind J.J Abrams' currently shooting Star Trek sequel has some kind words for the villain of the piece, Benedict Cumberbatch. He also briefly discusses the mysterious plot..

Alex Kurtzman has given an update on the filming of the highly anticipated Star Trek Sequel. He says that it's going "unbelievably well" and that the "finish line is in sight". He also has some very nice things to say about new cast addition Benedict Cumberbatch. The Sherlock actor, who will play the still unnamed villain, is described as "magnetic"..

"He's incredible. What he does with language is incredible. His training is amazing and he's so magnetic, he holds the screen in any size frame, he really is a joy to watch."




After a bit of gushing over the movie's director J.J Abrams, Kurtzman goes on to talk about the plot of the sequel. He gives very little away, but does reveal that although the crew of The Enterprise might have seemed like a well oiled machine by the end of the last movie, we can expect a bit of conflict this time around too as they continue to learn to work together..

"Without spoiling anything, the challenge is that you don't want to jump too far ahead and assume that just because they got together they're all comfortable with each other. They're still all working out their kinks and still becoming the bridge crew that we remember from the series. That's still very much alive and look, any good sequel is about the challenge that the group faces in order to become the unified team and I think that that challenge in this movie is going to be hopefully amazing."
