The Wrath of Idris?
STAR TREK 3
Simon Pegg is deep in screenplay duty on the next Trek movie. Turns out the script he’s writing with Doug Jung is entirely new: “I haven’t read Bob ( Orci)’ s script and they didn’t want us to,” he tells Den Of Geek. “So we went back to the drawing board.” But expect some old school
Trek DNA in the mix. “[ We] just want to take it forward with the spirit of the TV show,” Pegg tells Spinoff Online. “It’s a story about frontierism and adventure and optimism and fun, and that’s where we want to take it.” Bond- in- waiting Idris Elba is said to be in early talks for a substantial role, possibly the film’s main villain. But Pegg photon torpedoes rumours that the Luther star will be swinging a bat’leth. “He may be in the film but he won’t be a Klingon [ laughs]. Or maybe he will!” So he’s Khan, right? One casting lock: Kingsman’s Sofia Boutella.
