Abrams talks Khan
For better or worse, J.J. Abrams is mulling over casting Khan in the STAR TREK sequel, and he recently chatted briefly with MTV about the prospect. Nothing seems certain yet, but it's clearly something on the forefront of his mind.
"Now that we are in a parallel existence with what fans of the original series love so much, we could introduce any number of characters, settings, references and situations that the original series introduced. Dealing with Khan would certainly be a challenge, but we had an equal challenge in finding our crew of the Enterprise."
"While I don’t want to approach the second film as a remake of episodes we’ve seen in the past... nothing is off limits in terms of what we’re discussing," he said. "When Bob Orci and the others who know 'Trek' so well, the fun of working with them is they know this universe so deeply they’re the ones who are always considering what it means to deal with the stuff in the past, so it’ll be exciting."
I don’t know how I feel about Khan being trotted out already as a villain, but if J.J. went with it, I'd have faith. I think it would be cool to see him tackle the Borg, but I guess there’s always STAR TREK 3. Thoughts?
