Speaking with Digital Spy after the debut of Ubisoft’s new Star Trek VR game, Karl Urban teased a team up of the “diametrically opposed” Bones and Spock in Star Trek Beyond.
“Our crew has sort of become fractured and we get split up into groups,” Karl explained. “My character ends up spending a lot of time with Spock – which is just a classic pairing.
“Bones and Spock couldn’t be more diametrically opposed. So, to be thrown into a situation of great jeopardy and rely on each other for survival and overcome each other’s eccentricities – it’s a lot of fun. I had a fantastic time working with Zachary Quinto. I can’t wait for [fans] to see that.”
Karl also spoke about his excitement for the film in general. Just like us fans, he can’t wait to see it!
“I’ve seen parts of it, and it is so much fun,” he said. “I can’t wait for an audience to see it. I can’t wait to see the [full] film! [Director] Justin [Lin] did an extraordinary job.
“He’s a longtime fan and he gets the archetypes. Justin and Simon [Pegg] and Doug [Jung] did a fantastic job of writing a script that sort of has a whole lot of new territory for Star Trek to explore – but, at the same time, pays nice respect to what’s come before.”
Star Trek Beyond hits theaters in the US on July 22nd.
