Of all the new Star Trek crew members, Karl Urban is probably the biggest Trekkie and at brief Comic Con interview he says that he doesn’t know what is next for his Dr. McCoy in the sequel set to shoot a year from now, but he has faith in the geniuses behind the movie to take it further. See the brief video interview below.
Urban has faith in the Star Trek ‘Einsteins’
On Wednesday Karl Urban was promoting his upcoming movie RED at Comic Con and he talked a bit about the Star Trek sequel (see previous article). On Friday Urban was still in San Diego, this time promoting the 2011 vampire movie Priest. After the panel IGN talked to Urban about the Star Trek sequel, where he again said the latest he has heard is that production will start in the "middle of next year". He also noted:
I am really looking forward getting back together with everybody and taking it all further
As for what is next for Dr. McCoy, Urban is talking just like Pine and Quinto in that he puts his full faith in the team:
Here is the thing you have got to realize. You have got JJ Abrams, Roberto Orci [and] Alex Kurtzman. That’s like three Einsteins getting together and cooking up something. I just know it is gonna be sick – phenomenal.
Hey Karl, you forgot Damon Lindelof (and Bryan Burk), are they chopped liver?
