Today we have breaking news from our friends over at Variety that Idris Elba is in early negotiations to play the next Star Trek villain in the upcoming sequel Star Trek 3.
Details of the role are being kept secret, but most sources suspect he will be playing some sort of leader for the Klingons who have always been foes of the crew of the enterprise in previous versions of Star Trek, however we haven't really been introduced to the Klingons in the new rebooted Star Trek films.
The film is being directed by Justin Lin from a script written by Doug Jung and Simon Pegg. It will feature returning cast members Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Anton Yelchin, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg and Zoe Saldana as the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise.
J.J. Abrams, who directed the last two films, is producing the third film in the rebooted franchise.
Star Trek 3 will hit theaters on July 8th, 2016
