According to MTV, Pegg called Elba an extraordinary actor and he has been trying his best to write a ‘Kick-Ass’ character for the actor. Pegg explained the Star Trek team will be on a five year mission and they don’t want to keep on repeating characters as it’s a massive universe.
According to Pegg the Elba will play an original character which has never been seen before in the Star Trek Universe but he did not elaborate further on the character. Elba also refrained from commenting whether Elba will play a humanoid like the Klingon.
Pegg then went on to commend the original TV show of Star Trek as how the producers made an incredible show with little provisions and technology at the time. Pegg revealed he has been watching the original TV show for inspiration in the next film and to make a film for today but without forgetting its roots.
The name of the third Abrams’ Star Trek film was revealed to be ‘Star Trek Beyond’ a few days ago by TrekMovie.com. As the title indicates the movie will take the plot further into the galaxy then the previous two installments.
