Last night Zoe Saldana was in Utah for the Sundance Film Festival, appearing at the premiere of her next film,The Words. While there she took some questions about the Star Trek sequel currently in production, including talking a bit about the Spock/Uhura relationship.
All I’m going to say is, if you put all the time and energy and wit into setting these two characters together in the first movie and didn’t follow through, it would be a shame.
She also took part in a jokey exchange with IndieWire, talking about what the movie will NOT be like.
It’s going to be boring. There’s no conflict between Kirk and Spock, they agree on everything! They’re beer buddies. And there are no bad guys. We’re just cruising in space.
I guess that confirms there’ll actully be a villain, unlike some rumors saying that it’ll be an exploration movie!
Star Trek 2 is released May 17, TBA and stars Chris Pine, Zoe Saldana, Zachary Quinto, Anton Yelchin, Simon Pegg, Benedict Cumberbatch and Alice Eve.
