London: The “Star Trek” sequel has reportedly been named “Star Trek Into Darkness”.
The follow-up to the 2009 film will once again star Chris Pine as Captain Kirk, Zachary Quinto as Mr. Spock and Karl Urban as Dr. McCoy, with J.J. Abrams returning as the director.
Details have been kept tightly under wraps, but in an interview with thewrap.com last week Quinto promised that the sequel will be “bigger” and “bolder”.
Benedict Cumberbatch, best known for his work in mystery series “Sherlock”, will play the villain, reports contactmusic.com. The film is scheduled for release May 17 next year.
