Not only the fans are eager for the return of Star Trek, but so is Karl Urban.
Urban has other irons in the fire, but his mind is looking ahead to Star Trek 2. “I’ve got Priest coming out next week,” he said, “it’s a kickass, post-apocalyptic vampire western, and then I’m going to start working on a new Star Trek film towards the end of the year. You know, when J.J. [Abrams] is ready. When he says, ‘Let’s come and play’.”
But will Abrams return for the sequel? “I guess nobody knows,” said Urban. “I literally do not know anything. I haven’t read any of the scripts – and I’m fine with that. Yeah, just tell me when and where and I’ll be there!
“I’m just really looking forward to getting back with the guys and having fun, because we had so much fun making the first one,” said Urban. “And I have no doubt that Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman and J.J. will do their very best to make sure that they make the next one even better than the first.”
Urban’s latest movie, Priest, opens tomorrow.
