|He swears he's telling the truth, the whole truth ...|
"I haven't heard the name Khan come up. Not to say it won't come up, but I have heard no mention of him whatsoever. He is a great villain. I don't want to say too much and then have to eat my words as I often do, but we've seen Khan [in a 'Trek' movie before]. To see him again, how much value is there in that? I don't know."
OK, this is a surprise. Is it possible that we've been misled? Or maybe Pegg is misleading us? Or maybe Pegg is being misled into misleading us? He did have this to say about the film:
"There is a large group sex scene with Scotty and some green chicks. That's all I know; that's all I've been told. It was a sweetener. That was my condition for doing the film."Producer Bryan Burk was just as evasive on the subject of Khan having a central role:
"There are amazing villains all throughout the 'Star Trek' universe as well as new villains. As we did in the last film, there's a lot of directions you can go with the film. In this case, we chose to do something we thought would be original and unique and different, and I think on paper, we made the right choice. Now we have to go shoot."Oh.
