Earlier it was rumoured that Benicio Del Toro is set to play as Khan Noonjen Singh in the upcoming unnamed sequel of ‘Star Trek’. However, J.J. Abrams has claimed the otherwise by slamming the report that the rumour is not true.

As per the rumour, Del Toro will be tackling the villainous Khan in ‘Star Trek 2’. As the character itself was made famous by Ricardo Montalban in both TV series ‘Space Seed’ and film ‘Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan’. Although it has been said that Del Toro is eyed to play a super-villain role, but the details of the role are still kept under a very tight wrap.

Abram was asked to reveal the character that will be portrayed by Del Toro. He insisted that it is too early to talk about what the role is, but added that Del is such an amazing actor. The filmmaker has said that Del is so versatile and he could sort of do anything except play Uhura. He added that as soon as they know it is going to be and he had loved it to be him and that will be public knowledge.

The upcoming movie, ‘Star Trek 2’ is expected to kick off the filming in early 2012. The movie is set to be released on 17th May, 2013. Previously, J.J. Abrams has insisted that he did not consider shooting the film in 3D but it is reported that the sci-fi movie will be filmed entirely in 3D. ‘Star Trek 2’ will be bringing back Chris Pine, Zoe Saldana and Zachary Quinto as James T. Kirk, Nyota Uhura and Spock respectively. Besides this, Anton Yelchin portrays as Pavel Chekov, John Cho as Hikaru Sulu, Simon Pegg as Scotty and Karl Urban as Bones.
