With shooting on Star Trek 2 aiming for a January start, director J.J. Abrams is back to searching for someone to play his film’s villain after negotiations with Benicio del Toro failed to come any agreement last week. For the last month, there have been rumors that del Toro was up in talks the part of the film’s antagonist–who still may or may not be a new iteration of the first Star Trek II‘s Khan–but said talks reportedly broke down Wednesday when neither party was able to come to an agreement on how much it’s worth to put on an outfit that revealed so much chest.
This news comes just a day after news Peter Weller has joined Star Trek 2‘s cast, but please, do not blame RoboCop. He’s a fucking hero.
RoboCop and Buckaroo Banzai star Peter Weller is expected to expand his sci-fi legend and join the cast of J.J. Abrams’ upcoming Star Trek sequel. As with most J.J. Abrams news items, the director made everyone promise not to say any specifics or they aren’t his friend anymore, and as such, details of Weller’s part are unknown. What is known is that Weller previously had a guest role on TV’s Star Trek: Enterprise, where he was directed by the great LeVar Burton. So, regardless of the part, this will inevitably be a downgrade for Weller’s experience in the Star Trek universe. Once you’ve experienced Geordi and Scott Bakula on an Enterprise bridge together, the rest of your life exists in that shadow.
Ever since J.J. Abrams’ rebooted Star Trek left us with the reaction, “Yeah, that was a pretty OK Star Trek,” there’s been some lingering doubt over whether Abrams would return to the director’s chair. We all kind of assumed he would, but his refusal to give a definitive commitment, even over two years later, raised an interesting counterpoint: hm, maybe he won’t. Anyway, Vulture is now reporting a firm attachment by the director, adding that “pre-production is underway, that the script will be done by month’s end and that Abrams will start shooting this winter.” So, Trekkers, stop worrying about that; start worrying about if this alternate timeline will require a different set of humpback whales to save the future if the original timeline’s Kirk and Spock have already taken George and Gracie from the past. Where will we find more whales???

The beginning is so weird looking b/c it was sooo dark! It was literally black and I had to lighten it up a lot.

I liked the first half of the movie, until Spock got all emo and the writing got lazy.
