Kurtzman Compliments Cumberbatch, Abrams

In an interview with MTV, Star Trek 2 writer Alex Kurtzman talked about new cast member Benedict Cumberbatch. Rumors and set video indicates Cumberbatch (Sherlock, War Horse) plays the big bad of the movie but this has not been confirmed. Alex had nothing but compliments for the actor and sadly revealed nothing about the movie.
"He’s incredible," Kurtzman said. "What he does with language is incredible. His training is amazing and he’s so magnetic, he holds the screen in any size frame, he really is a joy to watch."

"The movie is going unbelievably well," he added. "J.J. as usual is crushing it, he’s doing an amazing amazing job. I think as much as we put all of our love and effort into the first one, there’s even more in this one and he is really, he’s such an exacting and beautiful director. What I watch him do, it’s so amazing, he inspires everybody around him and he’s been so utterly true to everything that we all have honored and loved about Trek so that’s kind of where we’re at right now. The finish line is in sight."

"Without spoiling anything, the challenge is that you don’t want to jump too far ahead and assume that just because they got together they’re all comfortable with each other," he said. "They’re still all working out their kinks and still becoming the bridge crew that we remember from the series. That's still very much alive and look, any good sequel is about the challenge that the group faces in order to become the unified team and I think that that challenge in this movie is going to be hopefully amazing."
