Idris Elba is in early talks to play the villain in the Justin Lin-directed third film in the rebooted “Star Trek” franchise according to Variety.

Details of Elba’s role are being kept under wraps, though rumors have swirled that the Klingons will play much bigger antagonist roles this time around.

Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana and Anton Yelchin are all on board to return for the film which begins shooting in June.

Pegg and Doug Jung are writing the script and J.J. Abrams, Bryan Burke and David Ellison will produce.
