Anton Yelchin (the new Chekov) is still busy promoting his two fall films Fierce People and Charlie Bartlett – which is a good thing since it appears he still doesn’t have a script for Star Trek. The young actor tells ReelzChannel
I guess they’re withholding that until they get casting done or whatever. I plan on… becoming as much of a Trekkie as a I can in the couple weeks before we start shooting — just renting all the box sets, not going outside, not seeing the sun rise, just having the shades drawn.
Regarding satisfying Trek fans, Yelchin seems relaxed, saying "who knows, I may be (scared) later, because Star Trek is such a big thing that I hope I don’t let anyone down, I hope everyone is satisfied with whatever. But then again, it’s such a big thing that you can’t please everyone.” Sounds like the young man has a good head on his shoulders. Yelchin goes on:
I look at all these movies like Spider-Man and stuff, and then I think of myself walking out of Spider-Man, saying, ‘Oh well, like, in the cartoon… when I was seven…’ Everyone’s got their own thing, and some people get very upset and take it personally. But the cool thing about it is if you just think about the fact that people have taken something so personally, it means so much to them. It’s kind of a great thing to think about — that Star Trek and Spider-Man, or X-Men could mean so much to someone that they’d actually really take it seriously enough to criticize the hell out of someone because they don’t fit their image. If I think about it that way, I’ll take it less seriously.
