Karl Urban Talks 'Star Trek 2'

Trek Today talks with Karl Urban, and asks him about 'Star Trek 2'!


Ever since J.J. Abram's 'Star Trek' was introduced to comic book fans, movie goers and Trekkies, it has been praised for its update on the 'Star Trek' franchise and its seemingly rise back to fame.

Karl Urban, who played Dr. Leonard 'Bones' McCoy in the film, was highly praised for his delicacy in playing the iconic role that was made a success by DeForrest Kelley.

Urban had this to say about 'Star Trek 2': “I haven’t seen the script,” he said. “I just know it is going to be good. I am really looking forward to getting on board that one. And I feel now that we have introduced all these great characters and it is just going to be really interesting to see where we can take it.”

Signed on for two sequels, Urban does not rule out a third. “I think that is sort of dependent upon many factors,” he said. “I mean that is entirely dependent, I guess, on…You know, like anything, whether you are in a long running TV show or a play, if you are running out of new territory or new gold to mine, then sure, that could potentially stagnate. But the thing, specifically, about Trek is you can have a look at who is involved. I mean, you know, J.J. [Abrams], and Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman are all incredibly creative. So I’ve got faith in them. If it goes beyond three, then, you know, I’d go for it.”

Karl Urban certainly has a great level of enthusiasm for the franchise, and that is EXACTLY what is needed for it to have any shot at success.

Urban should return for 'Star Trek 2' alongside Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, John Cho, Anton Yelchin and Simon Pegg. The film is set for a release date of June 29, 2012, and is expected to be directed by J.J. Abrams.
