There have been a number of attempted movie reboots over the years and, while some of them have proven to be very unpopular and unsuccessful, there are some that have gone on to become very successful franchise once again. One of the most recent successful movie reboots has been Star Trek, which spawned the impressive sequel Star Trek Into Darkness and will bring us a third film next year.
As is always the case with a new movie, there have been plenty of rumours about which new actors we can see joining the cast and crew for the third instalment of the new Star Trek franchise. While some of these rumours tend to just be made up and have no truth to them whatsoever, there are others that do eventually turn out to be true, with the actor or actress joining the cast.
Over the course of the past few weeks and months, there have been plenty of rumours that we could see the very popular British actor Idris Elba making an appearance in the new movie Star Trek Beyond. Well now it has been confirmed that Idris will indeed appear in the film, with the actor himself confirming the rumours to be true, much to the delight of fans around the world.
This means we will see Idris Elba joining up with the likes of Chris Pine, Zoe Saldana, Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin, Karl Urban and Jon Cho, among others. Star Trek Beyond will this time be directed by Justin Lin and is due to hit the big screen on July 8, 2016 in both the US and the UK.
